2013+ transmission changes

4 posts in this topic

I noticed today that in the 13+ 700s there is a different shift fork arrangement.   One of the forks appears to be in a different location and there appears to be only 2 fork shafts instead of 3.  The forks are no longer clipped to the shafts and there is a different shift drum part# and case#s are different.  Gears keep the same part#s though.

 

Anybody know of benefits of this change and if it's backwards compatible?  I think I have a bent fork and will tear down this winter.

The biggest benefit i see is to reduce manufacturing costs as well as production time cost by reducing the time it takes to set a transmission together

It's highly likely thats the only driving force for the change. Cost reduction and time saving seems to be about the only motivation for change in industry.
