Never miss neutral again...
Have you ever been frustrated searching for neutral between 1st and 2nd gears, or unintentionally catch neutral when making an aggressive 1-2 shift? The BAKER N1 Shift Drums have neutral all the way at the bottom of the shift lever travel instead of between 1st and 2nd gears, making it easier than ever to find neutral and ensuring you'll only hit neutral when you want to. The N1 drum is also popular with handshifting bikes where finding neutral without doubt or error is critical to safety or riding/looking smooth. N1 drums are available for applications in transmissions between 1952-2017.

Q: What are your favorite BAKER products?
A: Where do I start? I have not used one I don't like, but I would say the DD6 and DD7 are great upgrades for your everyday rider that wants to make his bike better. The compensator and attitude adjuster are also great service products. You really can't go wrong with anything BAKER makes.
Q: What is your favorite bike your shop has built with a BAKER product in it?
A: We put BAKER in a lot of bikes. My favorite would have to be my bagger! It has a DD6 with reverse, a Baker 3 piece billet oil pan and a bunch of other fun stuff on it. If not that bike, then probably the built 124 with carbon fiber wheels and a Grudgebox. That bike moves!
Q: Do you have any interesting or funny BAKER related stories?
A: I have tons, but I’ll just share a couple. It would have to be the Grudgebox test ride that Scott and I took to Florida and back to visit Buddy Don over Easter. The other one would be the ride to the non-existent grocery store in Sturgis with Bert and Mark a few years ago. You find some of the best roads in the world when you get lost!!
Q: Any cool news about your shop?
A: Things are busy. We just launched a new website. We do have some other big news coming up very soon, but I cannot say too much right now. We are still working out all of the details!! Keep checking the website and social media for the news.
Q: Do you host any events? If so, what is the biggest or most important event?
A: Every year we have fall Chili Cook-off and Bike Show. We have live music, vendors, bikes, hotrods, prizes, and some really amazing chili from anyone who wants to compete. We get some pretty great chefs from some of the best restaurants in the area. Last year we had two streets closed and a huge turnout!
Q: What does American made mean to you?
A: American made is everything to us. We like quality parts from quality people. To us, American is family. You need to support the people who support you. We all need to eat. Buy American, buy local!
