Designed for 1990-2006 Softail machines the EV-575 provides riders noteworthy advantages over other aftermarket and stock systems. First, BDL’s reinforced 2-inch belt was developed specifically to handle the high torque and horsepower numbers being produced by today’s big inch V-Twin engines. Additionally, the system incorporates a one-piece billet motor plate, unique side guard and rear pulley cover along with the traditional BDL starter housing. Every EV-575 kit includes the very latest in clutch technology with BDL’s own patented Ball Bearing Clutch. The state of the art design offers up to 30% more contact surface, reduced lever pull, smoother transition, super quiet operation and flawless clutch engagement. EV-575 Series kits are available polished, black and clear anodize. Head over to for complete details or visit your local BDL dealer.
