  • Publication number: 20190301569
    Abstract: As viewed from a side, an output shaft is disposed rearward of a crankshaft, and an odd-numbered stage shaft and an even-numbered stage shaft are disposed rearward of the crankshaft. Moreover, the odd-numbered stage shaft is provided on a side opposite to the even-numbered stage shaft relative to a line connecting the crankshaft and the output shaft, and a shift drum is disposed on a side opposite to the output shaft relative to a line connecting the odd-numbered stage shaft and the even-numbered stage shaft. This structure reduces dimensions of the power unit for the saddled vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10428902
    Abstract: A synchronizer-mechanism-equipped transmission capable of moving tips of sleeve teeth and ring teeth away from butting each other by moving a synchronizer sleeve with biasing means even if the tips of the sleeve teeth and ring teeth are in contact when actuator driving stops. When sleeve teeth of a synchronizer sleeve that moves during gear shifting are located at a first synchronization position where the sleeve teeth begin to come into contact with ring teeth, a pressing member of a detent mechanism is in contact with a pre-gear-shifting detent recessed portion of a star cam.
