9-Plate Street Performance Clutch

The 9-plate clutch is the competitively priced smaller brother of the KKC. A must have for all 1990-93 Big Twins, and 1994-06 Big Twins with a 9 tooth pinion. This clutch comes as BAKER Drivetrain’s standard for premium. It has a one piece basket, which is 23% larger than stock, and a hard anodized hub for increased strength and durability. We moved the friction material towards the outer diameter of the plate, which increases torque capacity and reduces heat build-up, all resulting in a longer clutch life.

Benefits

  • 9 Kevlar 2-sided clutch plates with large mean radius.
  • Blue anodized clutch carrier and pressure plate.
  • BAKER’S exclusive 1-piece clutch basket and 66 tooth ring gear design.
  • Diaphragm-type pressure plate spring with ergonomic break-over feel during disengagement.
  • Standard diaphragm spring installed and sent with a separate heavy duty rated spring.
  • 2 Year limited warranty
  • Stock replacement
  • Stronger than stock
  • Larger torque capacity

1990-2006 Big Twins (except 2006 Dyna) 

Sprocket: We offer 35, 36, 37, and 38 tooth clutch sprockets with our clutches so that you can dial in your overall gear ratio. Click here to experiment with your overall gear ratios with our gear ratio calculator.

Starter Pinion: We only manufacture clutches with the 66 tooth ring gear. In 1994, Harley migrated from the 66 tooth ring to a 102 tooth design to achieve more starting torque. The flip side of that is the teeth are smaller and tend to sheer off, especially on modified motors. If you have a 1994-2006 (except 06 Dyna); 102 tooth clutch basket, you will need to purchase the AC/DC 9-Tooth starter pinion.

      Clutch Design

      The fundamental design approach of the BAKER clutches is different than anything available from the factory or other aftermarket manufacturers. For strength reasons, we manufacture our clutch with a 1-piece ring gear/basket. First, a large donut shaped forging is turned on a CNC lathe to the shape of the finished basket. Next the internal splines for the friction plates are formed with a 6-foot long broach. Threads for attachment of the carrier are machined on a mill, then the ring gear teeth are hobbed on the same type of machine that makes our gears. It is not cheap to make the heart and soul of our clutches in this manner but the end result justifies the expense. The radial

      strength gained by integrally putting the ring gear around the basket is analogous to the steel bands placed around a whiskey barrel.Without the steel bands, the barrel would explode and that would be alcohol abuse. Additionally, the ring gear is supported by the hoop of the basket and this guarantees the T.I.R. at the pitch line of the ring gear teeth (no egg shaped ring gear). We offer 35, 36, 37, and 38 tooth clutch sprockets with our clutches to dial in your overall gear ratio.

      AC/DC Pinion

      We only manufacture clutches with the 66 tooth ring gear. In 1994, Harley migrated from the 66 tooth ring to a 102 tooth design to achieve more starting torque. The flip side of that is the teeth sheer off especially on modified motors. If you have a 1994-2006 (except 06 Dyna); 102 tooth clutch basket you must purchase the AC/DC starter pinion separately, PN SP1000.
