 Primary Rebuild Kit

Primary Rebuild Kits

This convenient, all-inclusive kit was designed to freshen up those high mileage bikes and prevent leaks. It offers everything you’ll need to either replace your worn primary gaskets and seals or when you need to put the primary back together after you've removed the outer cover. The kit includes all gaskets, seals and o-rings to make the job as painless as possible.

Primary Rebuild Kits are available for 1994-Later FL models, 1994-Later Softail models, and 2005-2010 Big Dog Motorcycles.

 Daytona Bike Week 2018

Daytona Bike Week Recap

The BAKER crew hit the road again and headed down south to the 77th Annual Daytona Bike Week. We were set up at Bruce Rossmeyer's Destination Daytona, displaying our products and doing installations. Some other vendors were Ohlins, Klock Werks, S&S, Jim Nasi Customs, Speeds Performance Plus, Vance & Hines, Performance Machine, Rinehart Racing, Wheeldock and many others. There were many exciting thrills like Rhett Rotten's Wall of Death, Urias Family Globe of Steel, The Flaunt Girls, and daily live music.

Willy's Tropical Tattoo

Other events around Bike Week included, Bling's Cycles' annual party, Willie's Tropical Tattoos Bike Show, and Billy Lane's Sons of Speed Vintage Motorcycle Race.

Bikers Galore

The Daytona Speedway was packed with many vendors from Fox Factory to Kuryakyn to many more. Justin Brayton won first place at the Daytona Monster Energy AMA Supercross on a Honda CRF 450. Jared Mees took first place at the 2018 American Flat Track season opener on his Indian Scout FTR750. 

Carl's Speed Shop

The legendary Carl's Speed Shop was open for the last time during Bike Week as owners Carl and Diane Morrow have decided to retire after 50 years in business. We wish the best of luck to Carl and Diane in their future endeavors.

March Like My Bike Winner

February/March "Like My Bike" Contest Winner

Kelly left a great caption with his entry into the Like My Bike Contest. In case you didn't get a chance to read it, we thought we'd share: 

"My Dad bought this bike new in '95, the year I graduated high school. I have always dreamed of the day it might become mine, and that finally happened 22 years later! After getting the bike just how he had always wanted it, he decided he was ready to start over and passed it down to me, the year I turned 40. It is in near mint condition, with many upgrades including a Baker Overdrive 6-Speed and S&S 111" power plant. This picture was taken the day I pieced it back together after having the front fairing repainted, and a new set of Dunlops installed. The wide whitewalls suit the factory Birch-White paint so good. I've never seen another Ultra in this color, it gets a lot of compliments wherever I go. I can't wait for spring to come so my Dad and I can hit the road, with him on his new CVO Road Glide, and me on Old Faithful."
Thank you to everybody who has submitted their photos and captions. We love hearing back from the Gearheads in the BAKER Drivetrain circle.
