Our Cafe Racer Build will get some major upgrades from Barnett Engineering. We’ll add cables, brake lines and a new Barnett clutch. During our build plan and budget we talk about cost and choosing a few upgrades that you want to splurge on. We wanted customization, color and performance. With Barnett, we got it all.
We know we wanted to go with black powder coat for this project but we don’t want to black out the whole Harley. The twenty year old cables and brake lines needed to be replaced. We went with Barnett’s platinum series to bring some design elements to the build and their clear-coat finish protects painted surfaces and will not discolor from the sun. We will also get performance gains with smoother cable action and reduced lever effort.
The clutch system needs to be replaced so we upgraded with Barnett for the performance gain. It will increase clutch capacity, provided smoother shifting and is designed to fit the stock basket. Pick the parts for your build wisely. Use quality parts from Barnett Engineering — Expressions of American Pride since 1948.
