Has anyone used the front differential from an S-10 4WD as a trike differential? The front differential corrects the CCW rotation of the GL1200, weighs much less than a cast iron rear end, and offers variable tube and axle lengths.

The gl1200 turns the right way for a car rear end. no need to flip the rears on a gl1200.If u use the s10 front you'll probably have to flip it upside down, if you don't your go backwards when u put it in gear.

just do it and ask questions later. if you never start you\'ll never finish.

Does the "bouncy" you refer to feel like the old days when we'd pump up the air shocks and make the cars ride kinda stiff?
A might late to make this suggestion but had you leaned those shocks in a bit at the top or leaned them forward the ride would be less harsh. A vertical shock needs very loose valving to produce as good of ride as a shock leaned app 15(as a pair).
Are the shocks you used adjustable or rebuildable? May look into opening the orifice on compression to soften it and rid the bouncy.

don't know how far back you are looking Bob....

the attachments are still there on the post about 2 up.

if you are looking at dates older than about 2 years, they probably got lost when we migrated to new servers at Motorcycle.com, OR, they might have gotten lost when we changed over to new software, and some of the posts got all scrambled up.

Ya, I'd really like to see those pics too! Tried sending a PM to Peterbylt but his inbox is full. I'm diving into a gl1000 conversion. This thread has been inspiring!

I asked him once if he still had those pictures.

he told me that he stored them all on the servers here.....
unfortunately, he stored them inside each post, which made them very fragile to any database problems.....

if they had been placed in an Album, they would still be available.
However, when Steve Saunders sold the forum, it had to be moved to different servers, on a different host. we lost a lot of good pictures when that happened.


now that Motorcycle.com owns the forum, our servers are a LOT more stable... we have not lost anything since they took over, and got the software tamed down.

At least things look better for the future then. Thanks! Now to reinventing the wheel... ;-) Was hoping for some pics for functional rear swing arm design and potential drive shaft ideas. I don't know anyone with a trike, just google.
