Gearbox/Transmission tutorials?

James Corbally /

Does anyone know if there's a tutorial for how the gearbox in mopeds/scooters works, and explains the various components, eg. pulleys, variator, rollers etc.

It wouldn't need to be detailed, just a general explanatory overview, with some nice diagrams perhaps?

Or is this wishful thinking....

You could go to your local library or if you have a set of encyclopedias, look up transmission, or torque converter. Your library may have books on motorcycles with illustrations. A good maintenance manual for your particular bike will usually explain how everything works as well as providing drawings, photos, and diagrams.

Mostly wishful thinkin, but this...if you ever need to mess with a Tomos transmission, just get a polaroid camera, a scanner...and this Email.

Seems to have helped quite a few folks out.
