i'm not certain of a standard part number without the backing plate and starter setup but they most certainly have an evo to 4spd tapered shaft setup. drag specialty part# DS23025002, BDL calls it an EVO-10ST. its about halfway down that list there. i installed one on a stock evo motor with a no-name 4spd tapered shaft tranny. mine has a starter and a motor plate but you could unload that pretty easily on here for a fair price.

there's the conversion chart for part numbers.

search the archives here, most everyone has a strong opinion against bdl in favor of primo. i've officially installed and ridden 1 bdl so i don't know any better. i hear the clutch is better and less noisy on the primo - that's the direction i'm going for the new bike with a 96" motor. i'll probably construct my own plate between the trans and the motor this time though. i don't like the large billet billboard on the side of my bike. by the way the kit has zero instructions - but it does have a nice color decal included. whatever.

I have a foot clutch too,had to put a stop on my pedal as I had a tendency to bury it at stops and I broke the release finger, but it works fantastico now!
