Honda Nighthawk 700s transmission: How It Works, shift drum
How a motorcycle shift drum works: The shift drum controls three shift forks by a stub that rides in a slot. The slot moves the fork which moves a slider gear. The slider gears has pegs that fall into holes in the driven gear. The slider gears engage on either side, 3 sliders X 2 sides = 6 gears. Sometimes if your gears clash, the slots and dogs will round off, this can cause the gear to pop out when you apply torque. The drum is shifted with a ratchet system operated with your foot.

Finished the teardown of the spare engine on the Honda Nighthawk 700s. I need the shift forks for the other engine.
