Could someone expand on that last answer? I'm still trying to puzzle out gearboxes and trannies. Why exactly is it called a dog gearbox? And from reading around on MRT's site, I got the impression that not all straight-cut gears are dog gears. Why are dog boxes faster to shift and why is no clutch needed to upshift? And when they say loud, what are we talking here? And lastly, does anyone feel like putting together a transmission 101 for all us folks a little fuzzy on the details?

So those gears would look like the ones on my RM250. That would be kinda neet, smashing into 2nd and 3rd without a clutch.

If any of you have seen a dirtbike tranny, you have seen the gears they are talking about.
