:hailLes, I'm in the process of designing/building a frame
I thought of this but the problem is scaling, I could do this and then use the wheel diameter as a reference so I know how much to scale up the measurement I come up with but the problem is pixels are only so small and the scale up could still make it off by a few units.Like I said before, read the manual to get the wheel base of a stock TLR and using the picture you posted draw a pencil line through the wheel centres and measure from the line up the the centre of the swingarm pivot and then pro rata the measurements.
That will be much more acurate than somebody trying to hold a tape measure and spirit level whilst also holding the bike upright under it's own weight :O
You can do it in 2 mins flat :confused
Awesome, thank you - I'll start from this and figure it out since Ducati made the upper mounting point semi-adjustable. I'll throw up some pictures of what I have a little later.The Ring-In said:I see what you are asking.
BTW in most situations this pivot is also the same height as the engine sprocket centre line, tho there are reasons to change this. For drag racing the sprocket can be lower. now for better wheelies you can raise it above. just another thing to consider.
If you mean this it was fitted back in 2003,i put a thread up somewhere showing how i cut the frame lugs and lapped the working surfaces.How far is that being off from fitting well, if I may ask :O
