At last! I was able to take BOTH of my kids with me on a nice ride through the countryside. We had Sena intercoms going so the monkey could lean into the corners.

Holy cow guys! So I hadn't gotten around to replacing the bolts that came with my sidecar's universal mount kit yet.. And today I was realigning the sidecar to work with the new ride height the new tire and new air shock had set it at. As I was tightening the bolts on the struts back down, POP, this one let go.. And look at that! A GIANT freaking inclusion in the steel! Off to the hardware store I go, going to get some proper bolts. But geeze! Might as well have had aluminum bolts!

Good thing you discovered that while wrenching on it. The weather here changed drastically the last couple of days with gusty winds. Waiting for it to pass.

I would replace every nut, bolt and fastener on that rig. Remove the frame paint and inspect every weld.


Leaving Thursday morning for a ride to TN. I was hoping for warmer weather , but freezing of not I am going.

Air shocks for motorcycles should be filled with a hand pump and only to ma pressure recommend. They generally do not work well on sidecars. The load on them is not enough for them to function as designed.
Air shocks are not for adjust ride height, air bags yes.

Spirited first ride in a sidecar for a friend. He shot the video with a cell phone so not so stable. But you might enjoy it. The link will play but it may play better if down loaded.

I happen to see this 2015 XG750 on FB from Sweet Sidecar in Florida. Posted pics here for your viewing pleasure. Different tub and hardware setup.

This makes four 2015 XG750's with sidecars that I know of in the USA. All we need now is one in red...lol

What is the reason for the sidecar to be on the right hand side of the bike?
