Ok heres the deal. I have a 95 ultra classic. It has 70,000+ miles. The bike has seen east, west and gulf coast as well as chicagos lake front. Now heres the bad, the trans is shot and needs either a gear set or complete replacement. My question is does anyone make a complete replacement besides baker? Are the decent? Yes baker is the best, but I cant afford one. If anyone recommends baker they have better be prepared to kick me the extra 2,000 its going to cost for baker. They have many brands out there and more coming out every week; revtech, ultima, primo, milwaukee vtwin, prowler ect ect. again dont even mention baker if your not prepared to purchase one for me. I gotta get this repaired soon as this summers ride is from Houston to chicago to connecticut and back to houston.

Unless your transmission case is damaged there is really no reason to replace it. Take the gearset out (the transmission doesn't even have to be remove) and inspect it. Replace what needs to be and put it back together. Harley parts will be fine.

These 5-speed transmissions are great and should not "be shot" at 70,000 + miles. While it is apart try to fiqure out what happened and make sure you fix this so it doesn't do it again.

Once you get into the transmission you will probably be surprised that there is not much wrong with it. It will defiantly be cheaper to fix than replace.
Check out the post by "locdoc" in transmission and primary section. He may can help.
