Baker Drivetrain

Cable-Type Side Cover

This new cable-type side cover by Baker Drivetrain was designed with "minimal waste and purposeful mechanical intent," says Bert Baker.

Machined from vacuum-formed, certified 6061-T6 billet aluminum, it is compatible with OEM or aftermarket transmissions and can be used with the factory throwout bearing - "but we highly recommend upgrading to the Baker heavy duty throwout bearing kit."

The kit includes the Baker cable side cover, fasteners and related hardware, washers and a side cover gasket.

As a replacement for the ugly stock bubble cable side cover the "spatial envelope is significantly smaller than the OEM cable side cover, with design features including a convenient side transmission fill port." 

Available in gloss or wrinkle black, it utilizes the stock clutch cable, ball and ramp. The minimalistic design delivers maximum exhaust pipe clearance and is designed to be used as an OEM replacement, even for hydraulic actuated applications.

Applications include 2007-later Softail and Touring applications and 2006-2017 Dyna applications (compatible with cable-operated clutches and hydraulic clutch retrofits); it does not fit 2023 and later CVO models.

In some cases, systemic OEM clutch actuator parts are required, such as clutch cable and lever perch, clutch adjuster rod, throwout rod, center rod, release plate and jam nut.
