During the next 3 weeks I am going to pre-announce some new products to be introduced for the 1st time to the Custom Motorcycle Industry during the Cincinnati V-Twin Expo. New from Baker Drivetrain will be a 5-speed reverse following a popular launch of a 6-speed reverse 2 years ago. The percentage of touring bikes on the road having grown tremendously during these last years, Bert Baker wants now to help all factory 5-speed bagger owners wrestling with the weight of their bikes in tight parking situation.
Named F5R, this 5-speed reverse will help weaker and weaker baby boomers owning large touring bikes to handle their bikes by themselves without looking for a friend or a stranger to help them push them backwards. Of course, trike and sidecar owners will also benefit from the installation of a F5R. This new reverse fits 1990-2006 Softail™, FLT™, FLH™, Dyna™, FXR™ Models (except 2006 Dyna™). It clears most exhaust systems with no modifications (Some bearing door mounted exhaust tube brackets may need to be spaced out to clear the side cover). Sold polished (chrome & wrinkle black on request). Available for hydraulic clutch as a special order. Reverse selection is controlled by aircraft grade shifting solenoid & Bell Crank Assembly. There is an electronic reverse safety lock out solenoid that must be First energized with the provided handlebar or Inner fairing mounted momentary toggle switch So, there is no risk of accidentally shifting into reverse (Handlebar mount switch housings available For non-factory fairing motorcycles).
