    Looking to get lower RPM

    I have an 06 Ultra with the 88 motor. I want to get lower RPM for highway use. I know there is a way to do it, but I can't for the life of me remember how.....

    Maybe something like this?

    "Some of our riding buddies complain that their five-speed transmissions require high-motor rpms to maintain highway speeds more than 65 mph. They also complain that these high rpm's create excessive, uncomfortable vibration and kills their fuel mileage. They want to know how to reduce engine rpm at cruising speed. Since drive ratios govern the relationship between engine speed and bike speed, one popular cure is to add another gear by installing a six-speed transmission"

    You could replace your gearbox with a Baker 6-speed.
