Good idea Roberto. Do the centre and side stands catch or get in the way anywhere on full extension?

Hi Graham ... just finished uploading the photos taken with my cell phone so don't much detail ...

The side stand retracted and extended to full 40mm for big wheels


Another view


Double stand retracted and extended to full 20mm for big wheels (right side)


Double stand retracted and extended to full 20mm for big wheels (left side)


Rear tire (17" K60 Scout) off the ground with double stand fully extended (20mm)


View of both tires with double stand fully extended (20mm) ... the front tire just touching ground


Very satisfied ... waiting for Woody's 18" rear wheel
Cheers,
Roberto

Mines only done 18,000kms... Bloody hard ones though
Keep the grease clean and fresh on your final drive splines, keep checking your spokes (if you do plenty of off-road) and keep a check on your steering stem nuts.

I have 30.000 kms on mine and will change sparkplugs ... couldn`t find the NGK Iridium for our bikes so using the regular ones ... if someone knows which NGK Iridium replaces the regular ones I will then change them every 60.000 kms.

Another question Greg ... your rear 18" wheel what width is it and which tire do you recommend (size wise)
Cheers,
Roberto

PS.- I am investigating the possibility of making a support for my steering dampener fixed stem (made by Roc Stompa in Australia) using this two holes (8 mm) in the chassis threading them to 10 mm to bolt the support.

I was wondering about using those holes to mount a support for a Scott steering damper. Please let us know how it works out for you.

Hi Guys - I just realized its been nearly two weeks since I showed my face on here.
I am still around, just been busy on some paying projects and havent had any time for working on bikes and stuff.

My recommendation on rear wheel size Roberto? I recon go for 18x3.5" and 140 or 130/80-18 tyre.
I have 2.5" width and although it may be better for serious off road, how often will this really happen compared to the on road miles?
The 140/80 tyre is very tall on the slim rim and leaves only a couple of millimeters clearance to the swing-arm.

The opposite unfortunately Rick. I havent been on the bike for a few weeks as I am still working on the front hoses on the rare occasion I have found any spare time.
The hose routing/ends/"T's" has been set up and just need to get them back to the brake guy to crimp and test.

My appologies CM - What were you after info on?

One of my current projects has a lot to do with this:




Nothing to do with dirt/adventure bike but you will understand the necessity for the detailed solid models as the project progresses further.

Greg.
