I have used Jims, Baker and Ultima. I have found that the Ultima gearset with Harley bearings is a bullet proof combo. Thats with 124+ hp and rear fender scraping wheelies.
They all are good. But for less than $600.00 bucks the Ultima is my choice.

Baker DD5 is supposed to be the most stout tranny they make. They stand behind their stuff too.

Talked to R&D. It's $750 to have them cut a lip into the gears. i might go this route while i'm in afghanistan this fall/winter/spring. 750 for a bulletproof tranny, 600 for 107" jugs and plugs, and 500 for a new clutch. should have a solid drive train (until the crank scissors lol)

undercutting? we used to do that on the sportbikes

Yeah I talked to him about my junk and he said only thing to really do is buy the broken parts and magna flux the rest...then he will undercut gears on both sides and should be pretty bullet proof..I have a new stock core gonna put that one in the bike and send old junk to him with the new gears from HD and let him do his thing....

And yes Slothy most trans gears are undercut a little (.5-1 degree on the decel side for easier down shifting, but this guy puts 5 degrees in both sides for easier all around so no banging!!!!!
