High Torque Bearing Kit

The 34091-85 inner bearing race has been used on Big Twins since 1985. The inner primary bearing rides on this race. By design, this race press-fits onto the transmission mainshaft. This system works fine for stock engines. 100 HP+ engines will make this race walk on the mainshaft. If it walks inboard, it will damage the maindrive gear seal and cause a transmission oil leak. If it walks outboard, it will cause a primary oil leak. Our high torque bearing kit eliminates this condition. Kit includes a precision honed bearing and seal.

  • What model motorcycle do you ride? 2001 FLTR w/S&S 124, Baker 1 Oil tank, Baker DD6 Trany
Works so far

I got an early version that would have required the bearing to be pressed onto the main shaft. If I did that, I could not figure out how to remove the inner primary after it was on, so I never used it. I was reading some of their reviews and saw that they were taking these back, so I took advantage of it. The replacement slid on with no issues and should come off with no issue. I do recommend using something like Green Locktite between the bearing and the main shaft. I have taken the inner primary off and put it back on since installing the High Torque bearing with no issues.
