Hot Product Of The Month 

The Factory 5-Speed Kicker


 We know bolt on kicker kits are nothing new, but over the years many have come and gone for one common reason: they all relied on a ratchet hub or shaft extension that screwed on to the end of the mainshaft in place of the 3/4-16 nyloc jam nut. They all eventually broke for the same reason; the end of the mainshaft snapped off.

The BAKER F5K kicker kits use a ratchet hub that presses onto the shank of the mainshaft, then the outer diameter of the ratchet hub presses into the over-sized trap door bearing.  The ratchet hub is effectively located and secured from moving by the over-sized door bearing. The F5K is designed to fit on bikes fitted with our Direct Drive 5-Speed or Factory 5-Speed bikes.
