My buddy traded a 03 LT for an 09. He claims his O3 had only 5 gears. Either he doesn't know his motorcycle or was there a recall I maybe missing?

The brochure calls it a 6 speed transmission but one of them is reverse:).

Even that is inaccurate. It doesn't use engine/transmittion 'gearing' to run the transmittion back asswards it uses the starter motor.

The starter motor drives gears in the transmission. The starter doesn't have its own connection to the rear wheel. :)
