    R1100rs transmission arrived - Thanks, CF! It looks like it handily solves my length issues, but might make everything sit higher in the frame. Its going to take some frame grinding to fit it in...

    I was assuming that using an RS trans would involve sourcing an RS swingarm/final drive/wheel. There are tradeoffs both ways.

    R1100RS Trans/swingarm

    Good eye. I wanted to use the Hossack front end of the 06 and up k12. Those have a swingarm that pivots in the frame, but the transmission is part of the engine block. As I was contemplating this I...

    Connection spacing issues

    Ideas? The Lovejoy L110 jaw connectors I got are huge. I hadn't counted on the extra spacing. The L95 I picked up to check sizing are the right size but are underrated for the torque. They make a...

    The transmission is mostly to connect the motor to the shaft drive, while achieving both offset (centering the motor) and the appropriate reduction. The ability to change ratios is a bonus.
