This shows how a typical transmission, in this case a drum type cam similar to a Classic K bike, might shift. Some information not covered in my own transmission article, below, that you are reading.
I have some nitpicking with some of the information, mostly not worth relating here. See also my item 14 below on the roller. BMW has never waivered in its Airhead motorcycles’ transmission oil recommendations, and this includes the last Airheads. While straight grades are listed in the Owner’s Handbook, the only listed multigrade oil is 80W I also said that you could use 75W90, 80W90, or 85W90, depending on weather.
There are oils available that replace the “90” with or even I recommended that you do not use them unless: There is an exception; some transmissions will stiffen-up gear changing when the oil is hot. While there can be other causes that a change to a thicker oil will not help, in this instance you CAN try the thicker oil, such as 85W or similar. My present recommendation is that, if you want to, you may use a synthetic gear oil of good quality.
