Anti Overshift Ratchet Pawl

The stock ratchet pawl used from 1980 to 2000 utilized scissor spring that was well known for breaking. The unfortunate side effect of this failure is the broken spring leg going through the transmission and destroying it. Our new ratchet pawl utilizes a rectangular cross-section spring like the 21st century Big Twins.

  • 555-56C-A      = 1980-00 Big Twins except 2000 Softail
  • 555-56LD-A    = 2000-06 Softail, 2001-06 FL, 2001-05 Dyna
    Must upgrade to shift drum with ¼” pawl pins for PN 555-56LD-A

Benefits

  • Prevents over shifting
  • Built to withstand the constant cycles of the shift arm
  • Smooth shifting  

Each time an upshift or downshift is made the pawl spring is cycled. After many cycles, the spring leg breaks. The unfortunate side effect of this failure is the broken spring leg going through the transmission gears and wrecking the transmission. Any seasoned mechanic has seen this happen. With the heavy duty cross section spring in the ratchet pawl we have eliminated this issue.
