Well it has been determined

Well I have determined the need for a additional fuel cell behind the seat of the hack. With the small tank and big engine, and a somewhat heavy hand, I need more fuel. I have already ordered the main components, a 7 gallon cell, a fuel pump, a marine fill tube, a marine fuel vent. At the present time, I can barely go 100 miles, and that is taking it easy, sticking to below the posted highway speeds. Although that is really the idea afterall, enjoy the ride. But when I add the trailer, I doubt if I will average 20 to 25 miles per gallon. And to top it off, probly gonna upgrade the clutch......in May sometime. And also a car battery conversion too...... Pics to follow soon.

Feeling your pain too

The tank on the Intruder is 3.9 gallons and twice I have gone more than 100 miles, but I was sweating bullets. I had less than 1/2 gallon left each time, and with the system on the Intruder, there is no reserve...... So with the capacity that I am adding, I will have 11 gallons. I am just gonna plumb the added fuel line into the neck of the bike tank and when it gets low, I'll just hit the pump switch and pump it full, so it will almost be like have 2 extra fills while riding on down the road.......and when I get my Goldwing, look out.

Ordered a new clutch

Well I decided to pull the trigger and put a new clutch in too, my clutch seemed to have been abused at some time in the past ....... and adding the extra load of the sidecar and a trailer......just thought I would be better off taking care of this now. So now the clutch is on order, along with some handlebar setbacks. I have alot to do in the next couple of weeks. Fuel cell, clutch, wiring up the power points to charge the cell phones, handlebar setbacks.......time to get busy, once all the parts get here.

Relocated the trailer hitch today

I relocated the trailer hitch from the bike to inbetween the bike and sidecar. The first pic is during the mockup. You can see my foot print on top of the square tubing, if it holds my 230 pounds plus, I think it will support the trailer tounge. The other couple of pics is after I got finished up.



And the trailer wiring is over on the bike, it looks like it will reach.

I need more brakes

I found a 2002 front caliper for my 2001, they upgraded the calipers for 2002. It's a direct bolt-on, has 2 times the pad area, and a double piston too.


Old Brake style





old style pads, only uses one set only about a 2" x 2 1/2"


new style caliper, double piston, direct bolt-on





New pads are at least double the size of the old style ones

Thumb Handlebar set backs

Well I got my handlebar set-backs/risers. I just put them on before dark-thirty and road tested them. The set my handlebars back about 2 1/2" and up about 1/2", they are adjustable, I wanted the set back because it would give a more relaxed riding position, plus better leverage when it came to turning. I had 2 sidecar passengers, and the steering effort was less than before. I give it 2 thumbs up........here is a couple of pics.

That looks good, I'm doing something similar on my rig.
Make sure your trailer pigtail has enough slack for right turns.

I might have to reroute

Yeah Bob, I might need to reroute some wires. I already have a hitch on the bike and had the wires routed to the back of the fender, and the pigtail on the trailer has some extra length. So I am hoping that I wont need to make an extender for my wires.

New clutch and more.......

Well put in the new clutch, kevlar friction plates with heavier duty springs. Tested it and you can feel the heavier spring effert in the clutch lever. Then got to work on the tub body.......painted the bottom to the body break line. It's a rattle can job, but with proper prep, it will look decent.


Getting ready to take the tub off.







Here's the frame, gonna freshen it up while I am at it.




Not a pristine paint booth to say the least......but I can make it work......it's all I got brotha.




Another frame pic.....





Suspension and wheel pic, see the shiney spot, it was rubbing a hole in the bottom of the tub, looks like it needs a 1/4" spacer.



My work surface, for the clutch job.....



A little blurry, but you get the idea.....




In process pic.......it will turn out pretty good, I promise........not near done yet.

Looking good!
Try to find a spacer that fits your hub. I used some universal ones on a car that threw the balance off big time, couldn't get them centered. Eventually spent the $ for proper fit hub centric spacers, instant fix.

@ Bobmws, I was just gonna space the tub upwards by 1/4" over all.

I finally found a car tire that will fit on the front rim of the bike.....a 175/60-16......it will be here Monday or Tuesday, and I am in dire need of it to after inspecting my current tire situation. I will be working on installing my car tire on the rear at the same time. New brake shoes will be put on at that time also. Then a reinstall of the painted tub, install the fuel cell and plumb and wire it too. Wow, I have alot to do next week. Well time to get back to work on the tub......peace out brotha

Paint

I admit, I am not a painter, and it shows. I have a couple of spots to fix, then sand it down with some 1000 grit then clear it.......It will look better after the clear. Here is a couple of pics just after I pulled all of the tape off of it.







Fix the little minor screw ups and it will look very presentable.

Better painting than I could muster on a GOOD day.

Should look sharp on your bike.
