Assembly includes clutch hub nut, clutch throw out bearing and 17 tooth transmission sprocket. The case is a natural finish, top cover is parkerized, and the right side door is black. The sprocket cover, clutch arm and shift linkage must be purchased separately. This 4-speed transmission comes completely assembled with all gears, shaft and covers intalled for a quick straight-forward installation. It accepts original primary drive with clutch and the chain sprocket with cover. Looks the same as a 3-speed unit, the only extra part required is a 4 speed shifter gate. The original 3 speed transmission is the large gear ratio difference between 1st and 2nd, i.e. 2.47 to 1.57:1 with a consequent big rpm drop. The 4 speed version with its extra gear allows you to stay in the power band, which is much better for performance. The shift pattern follows: 1st gear is forward, neutral, 3rd and 4th gear are back towards driver as seated on motorcycle.
