DP Brakes and Clutches

DP Updates Clutch Kits and Brake Pad Upgrade Options

Earlier this year DP Brakes and Clutches expanded its clutch line with Complete Friction and Steel Plate Kit for Harley-Davidsons - this is in addition to established best-selling individual friction and steel kits, which have been very successful for them in recent years.

DP Brakes says that its clutch components are designed to provide extended service life along with smooth, fade-free power delivery. The components are packaged in the same high quality, cushioned heavy duty product presentation case used to protect all DP Brakes clutch components from shipping damage.
The friction plates are ready to go with no need to pre-soak in oil and "perform well in a wet or dry clutch - unlike aluminum plates, the steel drive plates will not swell, nor fade." The increased weight, versus stock plates, adds flywheel effect, improving starting and traction.
"We are pleased to be adding a complete friction and steel kit to complement our existing individual kits for Harley-Davidsons," said Larry Mills, President of DP Brakes North America. "This will continue to round out our highly successful range of long lasting, high performance clutches - dealers and their customers now have the convenience of single part number ordering."

Also seen here, DP Brakes have updated its "quiet and dust free" brake pad upgrade options, offering applications to include 2020 Harleys.
The originators of sintered metal braking technology, DP Brakes brake pads are an OE upgrade. Larry Mills says: "Sportsters, Dynas, Softails, FLHs can all be equipped with DP brake pads. Our fitment list covers Harleys dating back to the early 1970s. We also have added fitments for all the new Street Glide trikes, Street, Sportster and Softail models with new calipers.
"In addition, DP brake pads are fitted as original equipment on all Performance Machine (PM), HHI (Hawg Halters Inc) and Arlen Ness calipers. Plus, they are very popular with dealers servicing police bikes and H-D rental companies worldwide, where performance and durability is a key requirement."
Mills says that "extensive dyno and highway testing have proved many times over that DP Brakes pads have shorter stopping distances and improved overall performance. Customers will experience fade-free performance under all conditions. In addition, they are quiet, dust free and non-abusive to the rotors."
