tranny plate


Post by Panhead Dave » Thu Sep 06, 2007 12:07 am


Dumb question here but I have to there anything special involved with mouting the tranny to the plate and then to the frame?

I blew the tranny exploded actually.........and am going to put a new one in...........the plate which is new seems to be tilted down towards the engine.....are spacers sometimes used to level out the transmisson? or is this an optical illusion? How important is it that the tranny be absolutely level while bolted into the frame?

Thanks Dave

Stock plates are two flat metal plates that are welded together , I believe the top plate is longer . , I know of no spacers , but if you have an after market plate , who knows. I can remove my tranny from the bike ( its just sitting in the frame ) and take photos of the plate if you need them . I took some with it in the frame and will upload them here in tech. photos.

You say you blew up your tranny and are replacing it with a new one so maybe you can help me. What brand and where did you puchase the nes transmission? I ran a post but didn't get many answers. Any help would be greatly appreciate.
