Release #8


Factory 6-Speed Tapered Roller Bearing Kit is now available!

Heal your Achilles heel with the BAKER Factory 6-Speed Tapered Roller Bearing Kit for 2007-up Big Twins! The Factory 6-Speed Tapered Roller Bearing Kit is your fix for failing factory main drive gear bearings. We developed the Double Tapered Main Drive Gear Roller Bearing for the new GrudgeBox. When word of this got out, we were hounded incessantly by those who were having issues with their problematic stock main drive gear bearing.

High performance engine builders and BAKER engineers have known for years that the tapered roller "Timkens" on the left side of the engine are indestructible. This fact inspired us to develop the double tapered roller bearing system for our new GrudgeBox and is available now for Stock Cruise Drive 6-speeds.
