AND SIDECAR (DUE TO BE CHANGED)
Maybe you could also identifty make, model & dimensions too, please.
Especially the 'I pike' on the Tiger.
Ah, to 'pike' is slang for giving up over here.
Please, are there any more shots of this outfit (below) with the two wheels in the rear of the sidecar?
Best regards.........Johnny W.
....The rigs have gone now, and I never dreamed to detail the tires! (lesson learned)
Michelins on the Ninja (model? size?)
Hankook Winter i-PIKE, P185/75R14 89S on the Tiger.

I saw it was a 14, so not much use to most of us over here. There's not a huge call for winter tread either .
I've failed the 'remember to record the tyre details' test a few times too. such is life.
195/50/16 Pirelli on our goldwing.
And 185 /60/15 on the GSA. and sidecar
Iemller Cross 3. 155/15 (covered) on all three wheels:
Continental TS 760 Wintercontact 145/65-15 on all four wheels: Front view:
Same tires with snowchains on three wheels. In this case the spare is a 135/70-15 Champiro GT Radial snowtire:
And an overall view of the tires I use nowadays, all on the same 15 inch car rims (got 11 of them), with in the middle the Continental Ecocontact 1 145/65-15:
145/15 Firestone with innertube, only on the rear:
165/65-14 Pirelli Snowcontrol on all three wheels (preferred them above the Michelins):
On older sidecars with car tires I used to ride the Uniroyal Rallye in 125 and 145/15?, which was one of the standard sidecar tires at that time.
Great photos Richard. I wish we could get these Iemller Cross 3. 155/15 in Australia
I've tried a lot of different tires on this bike. Here are a few of them . . .
BFG Mud Terrain, 215/75-R15:
Michelin M4 Rally, 16/65-15 ZEL90 (with a small modification for sand dunes):
Greenway Aligator, 15" (rear), Michelin M4 Rally 13" (side):
Silverstone Rally, 15":
A few spares:
Hoosier mini sprint car tires, 10":
That is an amazing setup! Do you have any more pics or details on it? I like that shaft drive/CV combo, that is amazing! I bet it NEVER gets stuck!
You lost the bet. Everything can get stuck But when this gets stuck, you need horses (I hear somebody laughing now ) to get you out.

Airplanes can't get stuck in the air!
Est. 100 + (+ shorter end transmission of a 850). Or did you mean something different?
What clutch plate is in there Richard ?
Last time I changed a bearing of the outgoing shaft of the gearbox (weak point imho), I also changed the clutch plate. I allready bought a new one, since I would have the gearbox out and therefor had easy access to it. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
Ive put in the new original Sachs clutch plate, since I never had any problems with the original one. The old one I use as a spare, since it was still looking good. Im not sure how long it was in there. <o></o>
As for the horses. I once rode into the woods with (wrong) street tires and got stuck pretty bad. (Should have stopped earlier, the cilinders got blocked in the mud). It took me a long time and I got very dirty to get the outfit out of the mud. Ground troops were allready on their way, but just before I got out myself, a couple of horsebackriders that passed by, wanted to help me.
Now the story goes, I needed four horses to pull me out ......... <o></o>
