BAKER Drivetrain Limited Warranty
All BAKER products come with a limited warranty, but some small products do not come with a warranty card. The statements below state our warranty, warranty provisions and return / exchange policies. If your product does not ship with a warranty card the warranty statements are printed on the invoice in the lower corner. On the right you will see a image of the warranty card; if you need to download and print this off click on the link located at the bottom of this page.
NOTE: Warranty card must be returned within 45 days of purchase for your warranty to be valid.
BAKER™ transmission assemblies, transmission kits, primaries, and oil pans are guaranteed to the original purchaser to be free of manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 5 years from the date of purchase or up to 50,000 miles. BAKER™ clutches, kicker cover kits, belt drives, F6F kit, reverse systems, covers and accessories are guaranteed to the original purchaser to be free of manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 2 years from the date of purchase or up to 24,000 miles – whichever occurs first. If the product is found by BAKER™ to be defective, such products will, at the option of BAKER™, be replaced or repaired at cost to BAKER™.
In the event warranty service is required, the original purchaser must call or write BAKER™ immediately with a description of the problem. If it is deemed necessary for BAKER™ to make an evaluation to determine whether the transmission assembly or transmission kit or accessory is defective, the entire transmission assembly, whether originally purchased as an assembly or kit, must be properly packaged and returned prepaid to BAKER™ with a copy of the original invoice of purchase. If after an evaluation has been made by BAKER™ and a defect in materials and/or workmanship is found, BAKER™ will, at BAKER™ option, repair or replace the defective part of the assembly.

Following the demise of Big Dog Motorcycles as a motorcycle manufacturer, BAKER Drivetrain informs all current Big Dog owners and all dealers (ex Big Dog or not) that their service parts and upgrades will continue to be available directly for all Big Dog Makes and Models. Whether you need an inspection cover, replacement o-ring, top cover or want to upgrade from the stock chain primary to an open belt drive, we got these parts in stock.
BAKER Drivetrain accepts new dealer applications from those thinking they will have to work on Big Dog motorcycles ( Call 1-877-640-2004 to set up your dealer account for dealer web access and price lists) BAKER manufactured the whole drivetrain for 2005-10 Big Dog models. The center distance of the primary drive is based on our DSSC and is not common with a Softail. We used our knowledge of the factory system to develop a Synchronous Belt Drive. The pulleys are hobbed from stainless steel blanks for durability and corrosion resistance. The structural integrity of the stainless steel clutch pulley significantly reduces that loose tappet rattling sound that some other belt belt drives make when the clutch is disengaged. The indestructible pulleys are driven with a large 2.4″ belt and coupled with a radial ball bearing suspended outside the bearing support.
Other popular parts offered for Big Dog motorcycles are: BDM Chrome Inspection Covers, BDM Bearing Door Chrome, BDM Chrome Cast Top Covers, BDM Chrome Derby Covers, BDM Pulley Cover Actuator Cap, BDM Chrome Pulley Cover and all Big Dog Specialty Tools (pulley, bearing, gear set installation and removal)
