    Hi guys, just wondering whether to attach sidecar chassis level/ horizontal to bike as it stands or to load the bike, ie riders weight then do it as the rear suspension does compress a little. presently the chassis sits slightly nose down unloaded and then it sits level when I put my 100kgs onto the bike seat.

    Generally you’d level the sidecar for the intended load. Unfortunately that can change a bit if you run with/without a monkey.

    Here’s a good starter video.
