any chance this can go into a public forum so us poor, non-donating folk can have a look?

or, maybe it's just time for me to pony up the $30.

What about the durability of the xl6 Gearbox? I am considering installing it on my modified 1200s with about 75-80 HP. Greetings from Germayn

I have had my Baker 6 speed in my hot-rodded 1200 Sportster for about 6 years now, absolutely no problems with it. I run synthetic 75w90 gear lube and change it at least once a year.
I still run the 883 gearing, and recently took out the N4 cams and went with the N2 cams. I don't run the bike to redline and find the bike runs much better.
I have fairly quick acceleration with the gearing, and more top end speed than I want with the 6th gear.
The transmission upgrade was money well spent.

Thanks, they are even more expensive in Europe and the € is very weak, but maybe I will give it a try :-)
