Dedone trail reduce mods1100/ 1150gs
 
My welder buddy and I have recently done a Dedone style trail mod by shortening the telelever A-frame and lengthening the lower triple clamp or ball joint mount 3/4" Via Twintwin's suggestion, using a frame and triple clamps from ebay we have built a couple simple jigs, it wouldn't be hard to do a couple more if anyones interested.I don't know how it works as I'm probably 8 wks away from getting a chair.Thanks to Didier and Claude Stanley for there help.DB

I can't seem to get images uploaded via google plus if anyone wants an image I can email them.DB

Decided on a price to do more
 
Discussed what we would need to get to do this mod with welder buddy, if anyone wanted to supply an A frame and ball joint amount it would run about 395.00 and shipping.DB

Howdy All,

From what I understand and please correct me if I am wrong, THIS steering mod does NOT cause the front end to drop. The steering mod that is on my rig has caused the front end to drop at least 2.5-3 inches, it steers great but it now dives when going into corners at speed especially when I have a passenger in the hack. Had this mod been available when I had my R1150 GS, rig built I would have opted to go this way.

The fork angle and fork remain in the same place, what actually happens is the head angle (non existent steer tube ) the line between the upper and lower ball joint is made steeper.
Check my thread, pictures and a good diagram in French, http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=826829

We can fix you up with one allot cheaper than what you have cost, Claude drove it and thought it worked well and it doesn't need a damper.DB

Howdy davebig,

With the money I have tied up in this rig now, I am very reluctant to spend more on it, like I said if this had been available at the time of the build I would have had this done.

Howdy DB,

Yes I am working on giving Rick a ride, if it all comes to pass it will make us both smile for a long time.

Dave,

Got the parts and they look great. Will get the bearings/bushings out of the a-frame this weekend and then off to get them powder coated.
Thanks,
Ron
