I can only comment about my bike, i'm running the stock trans with no issues. Ran it for 6400 miles before checking/changing fluid, went back with formula plus due to it working. Baker is a great company but grudge box is not for me

All the gears in the m8 tranny are the same as later twincams except for the countershaft.  Wouldn't be surprised if it interchanges.  Mainshaft is the same. 2nd/3rd gear countershaft are the same.
So, basically some are reaching the design limit of the gear box then?
