As always Baker is thinking up ways to reinvent the wheel – and with your old trusty bike in mind! No one but the Drivetrain Authority can promise you this kind of reliability while backing it with the unbeatable promise of support with one all- inclusive, American-Made kit!
The BAKER Heavy Duty Throwout Bearing Kit replaces the failure-prone stock parts and eliminates throwout bearing associated headaches. The larger thrust bearing features a 97% greater surface area and 77% greater static load capacity than that of the stock throwout bearing. The brass spacer eliminates the possibility of bearing crush and disintegration. It is the perfect compliment for those running heavy duty clutches in a high horsepower abusive environment.
If your wondering what a throwout bearing does, it’s part of your clutch release system that temporarily disengages the engine from the manual transmission while shifting. (meaning it shuts the power off to the rear wheel in between gears) It translates a linear thrust force from the clutch lever to the spinning clutch assembly.
– Fits all 1987-2010 5 and 6-speed Big Twin models with left side drive and cable actuated clutch.
– Larger thrust bearing with 97% greater surface area than the stock throwout bearing.
