Shaft Jacking

Technology / Motorcycle / Shaft Jacking: Unwanted motion in the rear end of motorcycles with a shaft drive. While under acceleration, the rear suspension stiffens and the machine lifts itself. When decelerating the rear suspension is compressed, giving the opposite effect. It is considered a drawback for some traditional shaft-drive designs. Some of the modern, shaft-drive systems utilize newer technology to reduce this effect.
