READ CASE STUDY
Client Spotlight: Top-Rated Motorcycle Manufacturer
As the top-rated motorcycle manufacturer neared their newest product launch, they discovered that the redesigned clutch system was unintentionally creating higher shifting effort for the rider. Project engineers sought multiple methods to reduce the loads and move the product through final approvals.
The motorcycle design team opted to reroute the clutch cable, which would help to minimize cable drag. The proposed changes, however, meant the manufacturer needed a new cable and product testing right away. CMA was their ultimate source for creating a prototype to custom fit the special assembly requirements and conduct product testing to ensure the cable met the customer’s needs.
