I got the subframe built today. I am going to finish it off with a piece of diamond plate aluminum to form a skid plate.





Should be going down the road in two weeks hopefully.

I like the way you removed the motor to make it easier to work on

Only see the front mount and that seems low. Are you planning to have the height difference that is common on Kalich-type leaners?

Reference post

Quote:
The toe in should be able to be adjusted in one way or the other, but with the front mount higher and a small/narrow tyre the leaning shouldn't be of concern. One will need the toe in adjustment to get neutral handling at your touring speed.
Reference post 2

Quote:
If you put the front pivot higher than the rear one it will tend to make the sidecar wheel steer in the direction that the bike is leaning. The amount of up/down offset will determine the degree of steering effect at different lean angles.

The 4130 tube will make a dam strong yet still be light..

As for the sidcar wheel steer... On mine I have the front
mount 100mm higher than the rear with 100mm of lead
on the car wheel..
The bigger the diffrent's in the mount point hight , the
more lead you can run on the side car wheel..

I got enough tube for four cars at a price of 86.00. What a steal. I gave home a 100 and said keep the change so I didn't feel guilty .

I can only go by what I have done on my 2...
XR250 unit had a 900mm track.. 1100 wide from the centre line of the bike...
XT660 will have 900 to 1000mm track.. 1200 to 1300mm wide from the centre line of the bike..
