6-speed tapered roller bearing kit Baker Drivetrain says their factory 6-speed tapered roller bearing kit for 2007-up Big Twins will “heal your Achilles heel” by eliminating the common stock main drive bearing failures. “We developed the double tapered main drive gear roller bearing for the new GrudgeBox,” says ‘Gear Guru’ Bert Baker. “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 we here at Baker 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 it is now available for stock cruise drive 6-speeds.” The kit includes “everything you need to eliminate those all too common stock main drive gear bearing failures. We include our exclusive Baker double tapered roller bearing assembly, a replacement cruise drive main drive gear, and our new main drive gear/countershaft bearing installation and removal tool.” Available for 2006 and later Dyna models and 2007 and later Softails and Tourers. Baker ancillary parts and accessories are guaranteed to the original purchaser to be free of manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 2 years from the date of purchase or up to 24,000 miles -whichever occurs first.
