The BAKER 4-Speed Transmission


 

Haslett, MI May 1, 2017 - The introduction of the Knucklehead and the 4-speed in 1936 marked an epoch in the history of American motorcycles. Many consider the period of 1936-1984 the holy grail of Harley-Davidson. To carry on that legacy, BAKER Drivetrain developed the BAKER 4-speed Transmission.

 

The external architecture of the BAKER cast 4-speed transmission case was modeled after factory cases to capture all of the details and character of the original design. BAKER Drivetrain has made many functional upgrades to address the shortcomings of the original design like leaks, serviceability, and durability. 

 

The loose rollers on the main drive gear were replaced with a radial ball bearing. The bronze bushings on the gear set were replaced with caged needle bearings. BAKER Drivetrain added a provision, hidden in the back of the case, for an electronic speedo but retained the traditional worm gear speedo provision on the front of the case. The stock Fred

Flintstone shift detent was replaced with a snot-slick linear ball bearing detent for that smooth ‘snick-pop’ shift quality that BAKER customers expect.

 

The BAKER 4-speed transmission is available with a ratchet top or jockey top cover and has three different case finishes available: classic raw finish, wrinkle black finish or polished finish.   BAKER offers three variations of the shift drum and offer four different lengths in main shafts. All BAKER 4-speeds come standard with the BAKER Klassic Kicker Gears.
