Talking Its on.

Went down to the shop on the outfit and bought a pie for lunch.
It pulls right a bit. Not surprising as the wheel alignment was done via eyeometer.

Cheers Bruce

Talking Pics

More pics. The sleeves on the lower mounts will be replaced with some that are 25mm/1" To space the chair away from the bike a bit and to stop the lower connections from bending.`









Loctite. Good stuff.

Pulling right

Yeah NWR but you forget that over here they are supposed to pull left...
Took it to the auto electrician today for some modern lighting on the chair but the ran out of day just as I did. So back tomorrow again.
They had some cool little L.E.D. indicators though that only show when they flash pretty much. Only days to the easter get away now. Will it be ready??? this is my challenge. oops back to the shed.

Oh yeah They really dont want to turn towards the chair that hard do they???

You sidecar is looking great Bruce

Does you bike pull to the sidecar as hard as the st1100 did ?

I still have not adjusted the lean out on her sidecar .

Wife still thinks your sidecar body type would be great on our gsa .

She is going a bit soft on me.
Or it might be her sidecar is better than mine

Cheers Ian

Talking Pulls?

Your sidecar is looking great Bruce.....


Does you bike pull to the sidecar as hard as the st1100 did ?....

Mine pulled right real bad 1st up And after I had a moment or two flat out in 3rd gear where she really wanted to clear light poles off the verge instead of slowing for a rapidly aproaching sharp right. Took all my strength to keep it straight under brakes.

I still have not adjusted the lean out on her sidecar . .....

As you can imagine I have though it still pulls a bit.

I have now adjusted it so it runs straight under steady power but wants right under brakes

Wife still thinks your sidecar body type would be great on our gsa .....



She is going a bit soft on me.
Or it might be her sidecar is better than mine ....

I would need to test yours to see .

Cheers



A little indicator light on the front of the chair and a power outlet on the seat.




A little indicator on the rear of the guard. Not sure about how it sits though.



Cut the thread on some of the fittings for more adjustment so as to make up for the saggy rear spring. Also drilled another hole in the mounting bracket a bit higher for the same purpose.

Took the boss for a spin this morning. Boy 130kg makes a huge difference. He did not fit that well either
He also has kept me to busy to take the outfit over the pits so I may not be going away with it over easter .

Talking Fournales shock

Realised I had a founales air shock that I bought on ebay a few years ago just sitting there. Dragged it out and even though it is of a BMW GS1150 it looks like it will go on the Wee without to much trouble.
I dont have the airpump for it though I belive a high pressure bicycle pump will do it. Does anyone know what pressures are involved here?
The bicyle pump is good I believe for 30 Bar but some Fournales air shocks require up to 60 Bar and need the pricey Fournales pump.
This shock would be great with the chair being easy to remove just adjust pressure to suit it on or of the bike.
Took a photo of it all pretty and new looking but cant find the camera lead at the mo.
Any Clues here?

Cheers Bruce

Talking Air

Hi Norwest the Venture Royal must have air over coil spring. The Fournales shock is air pressure only no spring. Makes them smooth and progressive in their action. I had some S&W air shocks decades ago and really enjoyed the ride and the control they gave over the standard shock.
Brendan it must be nice to have an expert on hand... I had to wing it the whole way. But yours probably will get sorted 1st.

Cheers Bruce.
