OverviewMotorcycle Cruiser

For Year: s, the Harley-Davidson Wide Glide has been the Dyna with attitude. Its kicked out, wide-set front fork legs and near-ape-hanger handlebar took it about as close to a real chopper as a factory-built motorcycle dares go. But even bad-ass choppers must eventually heed the march of progress, and for 2006, the FXDWG joined the rest of Harley’s Dyna family in series of major upgrades. The headline change is the standard “Cruise Drive” six-speed transmission, which debuts in the Dyna line, while the rest of Harley’s motorcycles continue to get by with five gearbox cogs.

The completely new gearbox is a huge advancement, but not just for the additional ratio choice. This new Dyna six-speed is the best-shifting gearbox in any big twin of any brand. Shifting is suddenly light, quick, impressively smooth, quiet, and positive. Neutral is easy to locate too. Helical-cut gears that mesh more much quietly than the straight-cut gears used previously eliminate that traditional clank. (We know some traditionalists will miss that hefty clunk, but the 21st century is happening whether we like it or not.) The lighter lever throw comes by way of thin steel dog rings that move during gear changes instead of the bigger, heavier moving gears. Because the dog rings have less mass than gears, shifting is quicker and smoother, and the throw of the shift lever could be reduced. That latter change will be appreciated by anyone with arthritic ankles. With the additional ratio, Harley also made the sixth speed slightly taller than the old fifth gear, reducing Engine: speed in top gear.
