Shaft Drive

Technology / Motorcycle / Shaft Drive: Shaft Drive is a method to transmit power from the transmission to the rear wheel of the motorcycle using a shaft. The shaft is much like the driveshaft on an automobile. One end connects to the end of the transmission and the other end connects to a sealed ring gear on the rear hub. Shaft-drive systems are troublefree and require lubrication usually only when the rear tire is replaced.
