Re: Transmission model year question
As far as I can tell from all the posts here over the years, the only difference in transmissions is that beginning with the 2005 model they increased the gear ratio for fifth gear to make the bike a little more "spirited" in fifth. Other than that, I do not believe there are any differences. I would have liked a little more RPM in fifth on my LT's, so see this as a good thing.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
EX: '01 Black LT, BAT BYKE (Totaled at 110,000 miles)
IBA SS, BB, BBG, 10/10ths.
No bike now, but maybe in the future.
