Why do Hondas have the holders on the shift drum bearing?

Recommended Posts

I'm just curious because I haven't seen that on other manufacturers? I'm talking about the ones on the inside of the case that holds the bearing in. I have often thought about what would would happen if I just left them out but I haven't lol

My guess is it is because of the type of bearing it is. Seems like it is a rather flimsy needle type bearing that would not hold up well to being pressed in. As a result they might need to run a looser interference fit on that particular bearing thus requiring the retainers. This is purely speculation. I am a software engineer not a mechanical engineer.

I'm talking about the one on the shift drum on the clutch side I'm rebuilding my 480 and it's got a ball bearing and i researched online and can't find anything. It doesn't really matter I just like knowing why things are the way there are and I figured sombody knows
