Sounds like a challenge. Maybe 12 pints of beer and a bent drill bit?

[QUOTE=jaydmc;18306882]The hole that gets drilled out is a casting where the outer part is already 12mm, the casting is hour glass shaped so you are only removing a bit of a rough casting in the center of the hole. You would really have to try hard to not get it right


Thanks for the input Jay: I think a little calmer now


Bob

Jay - based on all the trepidation about drilling out that spot on the engine I would recommend amending the install sheet with the info you provided in this thread.

Bob - I found this post covering the install on an 800 GS to be extremely helpful (even though I only saw it AFTER I got my sidecar installed). http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=686884

Finally got bike and sidecar together in same location



New rear wheel installed, along with new subframe.

Drilling out the hole in engine was a piece of cake, but I forgot how soft aluminum was.

And in my excitement to install the sub frame I forgot that you have to enlarge a hole a little at a time.

In the above picture I getting ready to install the supports on the bike where the adjustable struts will attach.

Touratech I love you but your going to have to go



From this point on I was able to take advantage of some help from a fellow that I had met on this hack forum that lives a couple of miles away. Its great to have someone to walk through the valley with, and if anything gets messed up you can always blame the other guy

It was great to have Charlie along for the ride

Crash bars had to go To make room for strut support

The strut support utilizes the top motor mount, driving the existing bolt out and reinstalling new bolt It was great having a second set of hands
