wanna throw one on but have a few questions and concerns
It will be going on a 2014 FXDL

who is making the best one? (bulletproof,big al,etc)

does the bike scream in 6th gear at highway speeds?

what is the best sprocket combo? I am think about running 24 front/55 rear. I know it dependents on what you want but figured I would see what everyone is running

how much of a pain in the ass are they to do?

I'm working on one now, but it's all al a carte'. So far I've got a PBI 2073-52 rear sprocket and a RK Chains GB530GXW-120 chain. I'm waiting on a few more parts before I can measure for the hub spacer(s) and front sprocket offset.

I'm working on a '99. My stock final ratio is equivalent to chain sprockets of 24/52 (2.18:1). I'm not sure how that compares to a new 6 speed bike. I'm happy with my stock ratio so I'm going that way.
Close alternatives are 24/55 (2.29:1) and 24/60 (2.5:1)

Oh, I also got the primary case gasket kit from James, a mainshaft socket/tool from ebay, and fabbed up a locking bar.

man why wouldn't you just buy a complete kit?

I have a non-stock application. 2000+ hub with 200 wide tire in a '99 frame. Besides, it lets me cherry pick the components I want and saves me money.

One of the better kits (IMO) I found was thru Dynamic Dyna. Very configurable and what I thought was a comparatively fair price.

Either way, kit or a la carte', you'll need the gaskets and special tools...which are never included in the kit price.
