Someone please enlighten me, why do most bikes with a chair use leading link forks? I realize that there are side loads present that a 2 wheel bike doesn't see, but why is this set up better?

the main reason links are better than telos on a sidecar is telescopic forks will flex with the heavy sideloads when cornering and bind up.

the main reason they are commonly used, however, is that it is a relatively easy way to reduce the trail and thus the steering effort required to turn the rig.
a secondary benefit is that links(at least the set ups I am familiar with) tend not to dive under hard braking.

High performance rigs often use an entirely different set up-hub center steering- which is much more automotive design in nature. This will usually incorporate a linkage to the sidecar wheel which also turns, but, since sidecars are asymetrical and the sidecar wheel will describe a larger or smaller arc depending upon the direction you are turning,it must turn to a greater or lesser degree than the front wheel. It gets complicated.





and that isn't even thinking about things like antisway bars.

well fuck me. This board was a lot more fun when it was easy to post pictures. Doesn't look like those links work- too bad -they were pretty cool pictures of some high performance hardware.

Yeah, it's real. The balance point, where you can drive the rig around like an awkward lopsided motorcycle is way up in the air for wide and/or heavy sidecars. My Tiger isn't very heavy but it is wide and it looks really crazy when I fly the car.
My old /2 rig wasn't so extreme, but I could lay the left crashbar on the pavement and throw sparks for blocks.
It is pretty impressive to see this guy hanging it out there with the wide square tires he has on the Yamaha

I just noticed the wheelchair to the left of the Hayabusa. Is that why the hack?
