On my GS the mods would have to start at the Y pipe, where the muffler slips on it woud have to move probably and inch to the left. Which means the Remus (smaller than the stock muffler) wouldn't clear the Jessie box so that means a new muffler.
As far as getting the power to the ground this 175 Nitto that I have does the job.

155

I had a 155 Kuhmo on for a few test rides, lots of clearance, does wonder for the gear ratio being so small in diameter, it just looked a little wimpy under the GS. Size does matter

1. the tire has a smaller diameter at the RIM, but is FAR TALLER than the "corresponding" motorcycle tire it is replacing



so.....
the OUTSIDE diameter should be ALMOST THE VERY SAME as the standard tire...
you can see this simply by how the bike "SITS" on the center stand...
exactly the same way as it would with the standard motorcycle tire... which sits on a larger diameter rim, but has a lower profile

as for your... "size DOES matter" comment....
well....
simply put....
that's why i had to go to medical school.... just to get a date

wheel

I think the next adaptor will be built around one of the Jegs wheels. There price is good and that sure looks nice on your 1200.

That is a nice looking wheel and tire! I was just wondering how the bike handles solo (no hack).

as elmer said just above me
after the trail-reduction steering modification...
even without the car tire on the rear, the bike is UNrideable without the sidecar

with the car tire... nope...
please don't

Part 2

So since my adaptor has not fell apart yet, about 700 miles on it, it is time to make one for my buddies 1100GS. This one should go a lot quicker as we have most of the dimensions, although he is using a different wheel, and we have figured out the which machining process to do in which order.

adaptor #3

So I was working on the the adaptor for the 1100 and I had this idea, why don't I make 2 at a time, since I already have the parts setup to turn and drill I might as well do two. I do have 1 more piece of aluminum that needs a project.
