  5. 105 – Alignment Of Machine To Side Car On Level Floor

ALIGNMENT OF MACHINE TO SIDE CAR ON LEVEL FLOOR

First: tire pressures must be 25 lbs. rear tire, 20 lbs. front tire, 20 lbs. side car tire.

Second: machine and side car should be on lever surface.

Third: side car assembled to motorcycle – all connections tight, except side car to motorcycle brace. The brace clamps on side car frame left loose enough to move. Now, lean motorcycle away from side car about two to three degrees from proper steering. Tighten clamps.

Should machine be set straight up and down with side car, there will be a drag to the right noticeable on handlebars while operating. Machine will operate in straight line on level road with proper alignment.
