So the Xl6 works fine, but I still had not the oportunity to test it on a highway, but I think about 85-90 Mph it should be fine with the 29 front pulley, now I try to decide between a chaing conversion and changing the pulley for 28 t. Greetings from Berlin

Dec and Myles, I know this is an older thread but it raises a question for me about the shifting feel with the six speed, I know it utilizes Bakers detent drum which claims to shift better. Any feedback on this?

They shift like butter...
It's a shorter throw since you need 6 in the same space as 5.
