DP Brakes and Clutches to Expand Clutch Line - Complete Friction and Steel Plate Kit
After what DP Brakes and Clutches describes as “incredible success”, the company is expanding its line of H-D clutches by offering a complete friction and steel kit for Harley-Davidsons – this is in addition to the individual friction and steel kits which have proven so popular with dealers.
DP Brakes’ clutch components are designed to provide extended service life and smooth, fade-free power delivery. The friction plates are ready to go, with no need to pre-soak in oil and are said to perform well in a wet or dry clutch. “The steel drive plates will not swell, unlike aluminum plates, nor will they fade,” says Larry Mills, President of DP Brakes North America. The increased weight versus stock plates adds ‘fly wheel effect’, improving starting and traction.
“We are pleased to be adding a complete friction and steel kit to complement our existing individual kits. This will continue to round out our highly successful range of long lasting, high performance clutches.
“Having one part number will make it easier for the dealer and consumer to order, and the sense of quality is increased by using the same high quality, durable, cushioned and heavy duty plastic presentation case which will protect them from damage during shipping and deliver a real sense of the quality we engineer into every component we make.”
