Rear Suspension Set Up ?

I think I've gotten too many terms in my mind, so help me out.

Bike on a stand (no load on the suspension, tires off the ground) has X distance between two points (bolt near the seat to axle) = 21.5"
Bike off the stand with no rider has Y, distance between same two points = 19.75"
Bike with rider seated has Z distance, distance between same two points = 18.25"

So, what term do you use for each:
X to Y
Y to Z
X to Z

What do you think is a reasonable number for each distance?

What is the point of preload on the rear suspension, to change ride height, or something else?

Me too, first sidecar I've ever seen mounted on the left side though, high visibility dayglo orange too, can never be too safe. I see the air bag on the seat, Is that an air bag on the high mounted dashboard?

the chains were perfect. good for up to 60km/hr and i ran them for almost 100km. noticed some flat areas on the links where they wore a little but almost no damage to the tire. while i was stressing about the mud and my worn tires the locals just laughed as they use chains on their smaller bikes pretty frequently as its the only way to deal with the mud there.

i think the rimlock didnt much like the idea of riding a fully loaded bike for 15km on a completely flat rear tire

Hmmm...

I wonder if oiling it would help.

my concern with oiling the unifilter would be cleaning it later. cleaning pleats is a pain in the arse. im going to switch to the modified stock filter with oiled foam which is nice and easy to service whenever i do the main air filter.
