The stock ratchet pawl used from 1980 to 2000 utilized a scissor spring that was well known for breaking. Each time an upshift or downshift is made the pawl spring is cycled. After many cycles, the spring leg breaks. The unfortunate side effect of this failure is the broken spring leg going through the transmission gears and destroying the transmission. The BAKER ratchet pawl utilizes a more substantial, rectangular cross-section spring like the 21st century Big Twins. Other improvements include:
- Lever ‘beak’ for overshift protection
- Pawl shaft lever splines are hobbed on a gear cutter just like our gears for high strength
- Shifter pawl by BAKER Drivetrain
