    As some of you know, I'm new to the Honda gig. What is a "hydraulic transmission?" I'm assuming it is hydraulically shifted. If this is the case, is it better than a linkage shift transmission, and will it adapt easily into my 92 lude?

    Thanks,

    Russ <><

    The "Hydraulic" means the way that the clutch is disengaged. When you depress the clutch pedal, fluid from the master cylinder pushes into the slave cylinder which pushes the fork and the throwout bearing pushes the pressure plate which disengages the clutch. :D

    Thanks. I'm familar with hydraulic clutch assemblies. The term "hydraulic transmission" threw me. Some Honda ATV's actually do have hydraulic transmissions.
