Release #11



No More Stripped or Broken Shift Levers

Replace your stock shift lever with our Truss Style shift lever and you'll be taking a big step forward in both function and form. The stock shift lever has cast splines which are prone to stripping, our shift lever has broached splines just like the gear splines in our transmissions. They'll stand up to the rigors of daily and spirited use. Our truss style lever features design cues inspired by the structure of connecting rods and highly stressed airplane levers, they're as tough as they look. Currently offered for 1980-06 (except 2006 Dyna) 5-speed Big Twin models & Big Dogs, under development for 2007-later models.

Chicago International Motorcycle Show
 The BAKER crew hit the road to set-up our display at the Chicago International Motorcycle Show in early February. We joined the likes of Harley-Davidson, Indian Motorcycle, Royal Enfield, Kawasaki, Yamaha, Suzuki, Arlen Ness, Rinehart Racing, and Kuryakyn at our first IMS show. The crew met with old friends and got to meet some new Gearheads as well. It was a great experience, we'll be signing up for other IMS shows around the country next season!
We learned there's a lot going on at an IMS show. The XDL crew was on-site performing their incredible stunt shows. Check them out here when you get the chance. There were many unique and talented builders showing off their work at the J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show. Judging the show and choosing the winners must have been difficult!
