The first real ride....
Still not turning right as easy as I would like..
left turns are no probs..but tight right turns
yer are fighting it..long right turns are OK..
The leaning is great..long sweeping turns
yer don't know the side car is there. just
lean as normal & around yer go... When
the lean limiter bottoms out it just move
yer weight across & turn the bars...
On rough trails the car can move up/down
as the car wheel hits bumps with no efect
on the bike.. just stand on the pegs as normal..
Now just a few finishing touches... top frame/lid
on the bin..mud guard & lights...

Pete-NZ, Looks successful. I missed how the lean limiter works. Would you please post a close up photo of it? Thanks

I thought you'd bent the sidecar chassis as you hit the trees. I understand, now.

Any thoughts on alterations since the off? Or maybe alterations to riding, given that you've found some limits to what it will do?

The photos in the other thread explain the motivation for fuilding it better than any words can. Beautiful location to hit the scenery

other than that one hickcup...
there was a small slip on the bank off the track
when I went around it the car wheel droped of the
side of the track... Bike/car has only got a 900mm track..

For normal rideing the car almost dosn't exsisst..
The car weighs 60/70lbs?..hell I carryed it up the
bank after I removed it..not drag...carry
rideing along a rough track yer can watch the car going up
& down with no movement of the bike...

I'm going to give it a bit more lean to the right..right hand turns
arn't as easy as left turns... plus I'm going to try a steering damper
on the limiting strut to carm its action down a bit...

I'm very happy with it... Now I know it works. I will get the finishing
touchs done..mudguard / top on the bin / lights etc...

Pete

Got a mudguard & small light on... Lid.. will prob have a cover made..
also increased the lean... On the road yer don't know the car there, just
lean as yer normaly would.. it's only tight corners going to fast that
gives probs as yer run out of lean.. As long as you are aware of it
slow down theres no probs..I don't think the steering has got any heavyer
with the car on...
On the dirt ... again yer don't really know the cars there , It happy to go up
& down over bumps with no efect on the bike...

Question Well done

Very good work on the side car! i like the addition of the front fender on the side wheel. It ties the bike together. Have you used it for any excursions yet?

Quite easy to ride... And a lot better
than packing the gear on the bike,,

I love it. Any more closeups would be apreciated. I wonder whether I can build something similar for a kl250 sherpa.

Theres no reason why not...
just keep in mined the mounting points
have to be under the centre of the bike
in line with the wheel centres...
car on the right side would be easyer
as you don't have to clear the chain...

leaner

G`Day I made a leaner on my R100RS .Ditched the limiting rod. Made a stop on sidecar frame to stop left hand fall on bike,and a chain to hold bike from touching ground for right side . Works so well.Been up very rough dirt roads bike handles better than solo.On road I can hold off most solo`s through the corners. Max
