Been thinking of a in-line, stressed member gearbox for 1000 & 1100 models.
"Stressed member" being part of the swingarm.
Lever and Cable actuated selection. Possible pneumatic adaption.

Any thoughts? Sidecar Rigs, Trikes, What-have-you...

Here is the generalidea without a physical layout:
Forward 1:1
Reverse 2.75:1
No Neutral
Non Synchronized

might be a good idea for trikes but.. a two wheeled bike, i am sure that an electrical motor would be better (smaller) i was thinking about a centrifugal clutch right at the output shaft of the bike, no extra modifications just the mount for the electrical motor, when it spins it engages and push bike in reverse.. while it is not spinning clutch is off and bike works as a stock.

An interesting note to the Quaife unit:

It is bi-directional... meaning there is no defined input. Input comes from either side. It is 1:1 F/R. Gears are straight-cut and chamfered. It is as fast in forward as it is in reverse. Simple, strong and reliable.
