Side Car, leading link, callipers question

Post by Breyno » Tue Nov 14, 2017 5:08 pm

I have fitted a sidecar(premier) and leading link to the old girl (GL1500A). It came with the bike when I bought it two years ago. I know it was designed and built of that bike.

The only drama I ma having is the front brakes. Unless I am missing something, the standard callipers on the Goldwing don't fit the brackets on the leading link. Especially with the anti dive bits.

The bracket distance is around 90mm with both front and rear holes being 25mm. Which as you know, with the anti dive bits rear is around 25mm and the front (or lower) is 12mm.

Finding good advice on this has been hard, there doesn't seem to be much out there that I can find.
