Harley Davidson Transmission Torque Specs


The transmission is a 5- or 6-speed constant-mesh type that is contained in an extension of the crankcase. The transmission permits the rider to vary the ratio of engine speed-to-rear driving wheel speed in order to meet the varying conditions of operation. The transmission is foot-operated by the gear shift lever, transmitting the force through a gear shifter shaft. According to Rask Cycle, baseline torque is calculated for an unplated, non-lubricated bolt.
