Italian made clutch components

Italian clutch specialist Surflex first started manufacturing friction plates 65 years ago. The company makes a wide range of OEM fitments and offers distributors and dealers access to one of the most comprehensive make and model programs in the world - a program that goes back decades in terms of fitments for many of the more hard to source applications.

Though best known for their Japanese and European brand street and off-road products, the company also offers a large range of replacement and upgrade steel and friction plates, kits and clutch baskets for Harley-Davidson and aftermarket v-twin applications.

Manufactured in-house, using asbestos-free proprietary friction material blends, some including Kevlar or carbon fibers, their range includes applications for most 883cc and 1200cc pre-Evo, Evo and Twin Cam Sportsters and most of Harley’s Big Twins, Buells, and V-Rods - in fact, Harley applications right the way from 1941 (from the Harley models that were current at the time the Surflex factory started production) to the most recent late-model applications.
