  1. Flying the Chair

    General Mean Streak
    having the sidecar on the left is far more civilised when the hot and noisy pipes are on the right - also makes it a lot easier to mount not having to get around the exhaust

  3. Transmission problems

    General Mean Streak
    A sticking sidestand switch will kill the engine when you put it in first ! Have you tried riding it in first to free up the plates - if its been sitting a while you may not be able to shift up the box with the bike sitting still - it sound like the clutch plates are dragging which is the...

  11. DS tyres for sidecar use

    General Mean Streak
    Hi all - my sidecar project is now coming on well and my thoughts are now turned to a squarer tyre - the dreaded 'Darkside' . I do not want to do the swing arm mod - so the biggest I can go is 195 , I have sourced a 195/60r17 but I'm not sure if that's going to be too tall . I would like to...
  12. How do you keep your full-face helmet from fogging up / frosting over, etc.?

    General Mean Streak
    I ride in a full face all winter in Scotland - if you keep moving you shouldn't fog if and if you do crack the visor open slightly and that should stop it . When you come to a stop if its damp outside get in to the habit of opening up your visor - this seems to be the best thing on damp days.

  16. Fuel range

    Mean Streak Performance Upgrades
    Yep - typo , 100 miles can be a bit limiting - I think part of my problem is on my bike I have no fuel gauge or fuel light and a tacho that is so small I can read the millage without putting on my reading glasses ! I now plan my rides and check for petrol stations before heading off . I am...

    Mean Streak Performance Upgrades
