Zipper,

I'm probably way off but I was looking at the rocker arrangement and was wondering if moving the lower mount for the front adjuster tube towards the left so t he upper end of the adjuster was on the left of the rocker would result in more balanced load on the pivot bearing? This would also position the lower mount closer to the main frame tube so there would be less flex in the mount.

I'd post pictures of the first stages of my project but I'd be embarrassed to see them next to your work.

Ken

Plagurist are us

Mines a big chair that could haul allot of stuff, your will probably be lighter and maybe could do with a smaller swaybar setup, this really works though and one can crank preload into the bar and it acts like a spring making the suspension much stiffer.

End of bar sidecar not mounted.

Final drive side

Sidecar swing arm side.

Above sidecar swing arm.
You've got allot to do this winter, building a body and making this all work,good luck.DB

preload

Simple and it gets stiff very fast disconnect one end of sway bar (take aluminum arm splined onto bar off) jack up either the bike or the chair reconnect sway bar, I settled on neutral but will try raising chair side just a little next year.DB

I have a question on the swaybar, perhaps better directed to Claude.
Are the arm lengths equal, and the attachment points equidistant from the axle center on each wheel, or can the preload be adjusted to create a 'balance' in the actual travel?
Additionally, will camber adjustment affect the swaybar settings?

Yes Claude has the real handle, but arms are equal length, they are attached buy multiple hiem joints so I don't believe they affect camber.Since you have a Hannigan chair I don't believe theirs has equal length arms, I don't know as mine is equal length to wheel centerlines, Good reading here http://www.hpsidecar.com/sidecararti...rarticles.html DB
