I just had the transmission input shaft bust on my 2001 FLHTC. I don't know why, its a long story and I really don't feel like typing it all out right now.

Anyway I was looking on ebay for stock 5 spd takeout trannys and I need to know what will fit. I think the FX trans is different as is the softail but is it just the trans door or are the gearsets different also. can I canabalize one for the input shaft? I haven't priced just the shaft from the MOCO and I probably won't get into doing it myself anyway.

Nevermind I just looked up the price of a new trans mainshaft and it's under $100.00. Lots cheaper than the DD6 I really wanted but my Yukon is in the shop for a trans overhaul and the bucks are kind of tight right now.

Its been a bad week for transmissions for me.

here's what the bike stuff looks like though



this ever happen to any of you..?? WTF

Neither, I was just trying to start it in the driveway. Hit the sarter buton and it cranked a little then BANG!! at first I thought it was a starter clutch again but it was worse. I had just replaced the starter two days before because of a busted idler gear in the starter. Then I and rode it two days without a problem. I can't see if there is any relation but there may be something I am not thinking of??
