I have a 1986 5 speed (diamond end cover with clutch release arm) out of a FXR which has a tapered mainshaft. I have a 1990 on up softial tranny case that I want to put these gears in, but when I do this I want to use a splined mainshaft. Can I do this with my gearset? I have compared my tapered shaft to a 1990 one year only mainshaft and they look exactly the same except for the tapered and splined ends. Will I run into any problems doing this? Has anyone done this before? Or does anyone have a good later model trapdoor and gearset they wanna part with?

Thanks in advance...

Well.....

Since no one has said anything...
I will throw out a bit of advise...

As long as the softail tranny is a 90 model and not a 91-up, should be plug and play...

If it is 91-up the filth gear and mainshaft has been change in design....Only the 90 will be an easy swap....but it still can be done.

Think you can change out the later gear and shaft into the early, but must do both...

Thanks for the help Dragstews..So it shouldnt be a big problem it seems with the 1990 mainshaft..Would you happen to know if I can run any evo 5 speed trap door to run the ball and ramp style clutch and the smoothe top cover with my shifter drum??

In Jim's cat... They show a door that fit both early and late models.
Has bigger bearings for hard use...
My thoughts on this would be, as long as you use the end cover with all the same year components in it, should bolt up...
On the top cover same deal...The bolts should still be the same spacing for both run of years for the 5-speeds....

Been awhile since I have done any 5-speed builds...Most everyone these days are going to the 6-speed..

Once you get to doing the work...that's when you will see how close the machining is...

Much Luck....And let us know how it turns out...

If your going to get one and have a bit of a Pony's to play hard....

Might as well go with the Jim's ...Comes with the big bearings (The Big bearing are OEM for 99-06 5-speeds) and retainers installed...

P/N Polish 2327B
Chrome 2327CB

Fits 1980 to 2006....

He also makes the door in the small bearing as OEM was...

With or without exhaust mounting lug....(The lug was used on the FXST models)
