Born Free Recap 2022

It’s a wrap, this year’s Born Free 13 show was the biggest to date! The Born Free Motorcycle show is California’s largest motorcycle event and one of our favorites! This two-day show welcomes anyone with a love for vintage and customized bikes. From untouched, running Knuckleheads to performance FXRs, this show is unlike any other. Our crew, Scott and Michelle, wore out the soles of their shoes at this event, click the link below to see what this show is all about!

The BAKER Factory 6-Speed Reverse

Designed, manufactured, tested, and proven - the BAKER Factory 6-Speed Reverse is the industry's leading reverse drive for Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

The reverse gear is safety lever-activated and can only be activated in first gear. In first gear, with the clutch lever pulled in, actuate the safety lever with your thumb and shift below first in order to engage reverse. Release the safety lever and slowly release the clutch and throttle on back. When the reverse maneuver is completed, keep the clutch lever pulled in and shift into first gear. It's as simple as that! 

This reverse kit was designed to be simple and durable for maximum reliability. You will not need to use the starter motor or wheel pulley because the true reverse gear is incorporated onto the countershaft. This kit will fit any existing 2006-2020 factory Big Twin 6-speed* and is in stock and ready to ship!

 *will not fit M8 Softail applications.

Class #20 - Get Ready to Hit the Road!

Summer is here, soak up the sun with a nice cross-country trip! Before you take that long ride, it’s a good idea to take the time to give your drivetrain a once-over. In Class #20, JT recommends checking these key drivetrain components in order to ensure safe travels and no troubles!
