As far as I know you need to replace the entire tranny, but I'm certain on this. I believe that Baker makes one for Sportsters and Buells.

It's gonna depend on the year sporty you have. Anything up to 04 has the "trap door" tranny and you can swap it out with one of the aftermarket 6 speeds. '04 and up no longer use the trap door tranny assembly and servicing them requires splitting the engine case.

When I replaced the cams, etc on my 'O4 it was like adding another gear. It cruises much better with less strain on the engine. It will run you about half the cost of a new tranny.

Happy and Safe riding.
