Competitor clutch for ‘91-up XLs

“Take that Sportster’s clutch to a new level,” says Californian manufacturer Belt Drives Limited (BDL) with the installation of “our new CC-140-BB Competitor clutch conversion.”

The 140 version of its “industry standard setting” Competitor clutch series was developed exclusively for stock ‘91 and later Sportster clutch baskets. BDL’s patented ball bearing lock-up clutch is said to significantly lighten pull at the lever while providing smooth, slip-free lock-up.
Each unit incorporates a designated number of steel ball bearings set in a model-specific diaphragm assembly. Conversion is a straightforward install, replacing the factory pressure plate, springs and hub.
