Belt Drives Limited

BDL updates popular GMA controls

Just released by GMA, a subsidiary of Belt Drives Limited, these updated forward controls incorporate "noteworthy modifications targeting specific customer requests," according to the company.

The mounting brackets have been completely reshaped from earlier models providing a lower profile and "unique, super clean appearance."  They also now feature a splined shift arm with a pinch bolt for plenty of indexing options. The shaft is larger in diameter and supported by an oil impregnated bronze bushing pressed into the left side mounting bracket.

"We've also now fitted an adjustable actuating rod and clevis design while retaining the adjustable indexing foot lever. A nice touch to get both the brake and shifter levers right where they are wanted.
"The redesigned mounting brackets make for a simple, unhindered installation and provide plenty of clearance for aftermarket frames. The new controls will fit standard OEM (3) hole left side and (2) hole right side FX and early FL style frames." GMA say they fit 1986-1999, but they will also fit earlier models - 70’s Shovelhead applications require a modified voltage regular mount. Manufactured by BDL in their Anaheim, California factory.
