APM Adds Comp Master Cable-Actuated M-8 Clutch Option

Santa Fe Springs based American Prime Manufacturing (APM) is well known for its transmission components - not least its Comp Master clutches. 

Company President Ben Kudon says: "We specialize in Comp Master brand clutches for American V- twins, but we also manufacture a wide range of other parts - all of which are designed to outperform their OE counterparts, and all manufactured and assembled right here in the U.S.A. 

"They are designed and manufactured with quality and reliability uppermost, so dealers can rest assured that their customers are well looked after. All our Comp Master clutches are easy to adjust and provide reliable, trouble-free operation as we assemble them with care from quality components. All the parts we make are from high-quality billet and then machined to exacting tolerances." 

The latest news from APM is of an extension to its Milwaukee-Eight model severe duty clutches. In addition to its established design for 2017 to 2021 models fitted with Harley (or aftermarket) hydraulically actuated clutches, APM is now offering a 2021 and up version for cable-actuated clutch applications.

"It is another bolt-in design, built to handle large amounts of torque and horsepower. Apart from some possible minor clearancing on some installs, this will be a true OE replacement, but with the muscle needed," says Ben. "All the power in the world is no good if you can't get it to the ground, and Comp Masters do that, and do it reliably."
