    Takegawa TAF 5-Speed Trans

    Did an install in a set of Honda 50 cases for a SuMo racer. Sweet parts, easy install. Minor case grinding required. Works as well as a Honda trans could ever dream to, and a lot more rugged than the older pre-TAF versions. Still hoping to do one in a China big-block, but some one's already been mocking it up for a LONG time...

    Will-do. He's got a couple races in with it, and so far, all's swell. The failures I've heard aboot were on the Planet, and it sounded like he had a faulty machined set of cases, and a big displacement Nice engine. The gears are a lot wider than the old 5-speed and seem fine in the FP'd 117. I still would stick with fewer gears for certain work, but in specific applications they're the cats pajamas. Not as cool as Rach's pajamas, but still

    Forgive my ignorance, but which Daytona are you running? 150 has enough torque to pull 4 wider gears, IMO. A 119 would really benefit from the extra cogs, especially for road work. I'll be testing a few street combo's in my Z this summer. It only lasts a few months here, so I better get wrenching

    $400 for the Tak 4-speed versus $600 for the 5-speed. Still a decent deal for a high-end build.

    Ah, yep, NOW I remember that little green beauty! Awesome bike. My Z is a beat up POS
    The Daytona box is a little short between 1st and 4th for road work. TRX90 trans is wider ratio and slips right in, FWIW.
