BDL WANTS RIDERS to know that if their scooter's clutch is aging and getting a little edgy, the Competitor clutch will upgrade their driveline with a number of improvements, including smoother, positive engagement regardless of engine size and power outpout.

The clutch assemblies will fit a host of V-twin models, ranging from Big Twins model years 1998 to 2010, to customs bikes using Harley-Davidson-baswed drives. The clutch's unique mechanism incorporates BDL's ball-bearing lock-up clutch. The kit includes kevlar plates with 60 percent more clutch surface than OEM parts.

Complete bolt-on Competitor conversions are priced from $425 and up.
