    Motorcycles are a popular means of transportation, and the gearbox of motorcycles is one of its important components. Motorcycle gearbox can achieve different speed and torque outputs according to the needs of the driver, providing a better driving experience. This article will introduce the principle of motorcycle gearbox and its working process.

    What is a motorcycle gearbox

    A motorcycle gearbox is a mechanical device that is mainly used to connect the engine and drive wheels. And according to the driver’s operating needs, adjust the output torque and speed of the engine to adapt to different driving conditions.

    Working principle of motorcycle gearbox

    The role of the motorcycle gearbox. The motorcycle gearbox is a device that connects the engine and the driving wheels. The main function is to adjust the torque and speed of the engine output according to the driver’s operation to adapt to different driving conditions by changing the combination of gears.

    Motorcycle transmissions can be offered with a number of different gear ratio options to achieve different speeds and torque outputs. And the motorcycle chain is also an important part.

    • Engine start

    When the engine starts, the main gear starts to rotate.

    • Gearing

    The driver selects the appropriate driving gear through the operation of the clutch and shift lever, and when the clutch and the electric motor brake are connected, the power of the main gear is transmitted to the corresponding gear combination.

    Working principle of motorcycle gearbox

    • Transmission

    The rotational power of the main gear is transmitted to the driving wheel through the meshing of the corresponding gears to propel the motorcycle forward. Different gear combinations can achieve different gear ratios to adapt to different driving conditions.

    • Shifting

    When it is necessary to change the driving speed or torque, the driver can switch to the appropriate driving gear by changing gears. At this point, the clutch disconnects the engine from the gearbox and reconnects it after the gear shift is complete.

    The structure of a motorcycle gearbox

    The motorcycle gearbox is mainly composed of the following parts:

    • Main gear

    The main motorcycle gear is the core component connected to the engine crankshaft and is responsible for transmitting the power of the engine. The number of teeth of the main gear determines the gearbox ratio. The lower gears have larger gears that provide higher torque output. The gears in high-speed gear are smaller, providing higher speeds.

    • Clutch

    The clutch is used to connect or disconnect the connection part between the engine and the gearbox, and the driver selects the appropriate driving gear through operations such as the clutch and shift lever, and realizes the transmission of power.

    • Gear mechanism

    There is a set of precision gear devices inside the motorcycle gearbox that can realize the transformation of different gears with the central gear. So as to change the transmission ratio and adapt to different driving conditions.

    • Bearing mechanism

    The bearing mechanism is used to support the weight of the gearbox and maintain the stability of the gearbox under high loads. Such as tapered ball bearings, tapered needle roller bearings, etc.

    • Gear mechanism

    The gear mechanism includes a joystick, a main adaptor, a gear shaft and a gear sleeve, etc., through which the gear control of the motorcycle is realized.

    The role of motorcycle gearbox

    While a fuel motorcycle is moving, the speed and towing capacity of the vehicle needs to be changed frequently due to the constantly changing road conditions.

    For example, a vehicle can go faster on a flat road, but when driving on an undulating road or ramp, it is necessary to reduce its speed due to high driving resistance to increase the traction of the vehicle.

    The main function of the motorcycle gearbox is to amplify the power of the internal combustion engine, so that it can release maximum energy in various road conditions.

    The role of motorcycle gearbox

    At the same time, the transmission can also provide different speed and torque outputs according to the needs of the driver, improving driving comfort and safety.

    What kind of gearbox is used in a motorcycle

    Like cars, many motorcycles are equipped with an automatic gear shifting mechanism. But it’s different from electric motorcycle. In addition to the usual pedal models, straddle models also have this configuration. For those who are not skilled enough to shift gears, the addition of automatic shifting makes motorcycles no longer barrier-free.

    • CVT (continuously variable automatic transmission)

    The CVT gearbox consists of two sets of variable cone pulleys and a belt, and the two sets of cone pulleys are changed according to the different engine speeds and vehicle speeds to achieve a change in the transmission ratio. CVT transmissions do not have fixed gears, but to increase driving pleasure, some models have added analog gears.

    • DCT (dual clutch automatic transmission)

    The DCT gearbox is similar to a conventional gearbox, but is equipped with two sets of automatic clutches that react via computer control. The two sets of clutches are responsible for the separation and engagement of odd and even gears, respectively, and work alternately with each other when changing gears to achieve a reverse-free shift effect.

    What kind of gearbox is used in a motorcycle

    • Quick shift (semi-automatic shift mechanism)

    The motorcycle’s quick-shift mechanism is very similar to the AMT (electrically controlled mechanical automatic transmission) of a car, which is an electronic control system added to the traditional gearbox. Within the allowable range of engine speed, the shift lever is directly operated, and the computer will control the engine speed to complete the gear shift operation.

    • Multi-gear options

    Motorcycle gearboxes can provide a number of different gear ratio options, allowing the driver to choose the right driving gear according to driving conditions and personal needs. This allows both climbing and starting at low speeds, as well as speed and fuel economy at high speeds.

    • Improve driving comfort

    With a reasonable combination of gears, the motorcycle gearbox can make the engine work at different speeds, providing a smoother power output. This reduces engine load and noise, and improves driving comfort and stability.

    • Improved fuel economy

    Motorcycle transmissions allow the engine to operate within the optimum operating speed range, providing a higher fuel economy. With a reasonable combination of gears, engine speed can be reduced, energy loss can be reduced, and fuel efficiency can be improved.

    Conclusion

    The motorcycle gearbox is an important part of the motorcycle, and the output of different speeds and torques can be achieved through reasonable gear combinations and clutch control.

    Not only does it offer multi-gear options and driving comfort, but it also improves fuel economy. It is very important for motorcycle drivers to understand the principle of motorcycle gearboxes, so as to better master driving skills and improve driving safety and experience.
