Eish I do not understand.... taking the wheel off such a big mission ?
I thought it is 4 screws and it pop right off.

The disk is attached to the wheel hub...?

Yes, and the wheel has a carrier flange that fits into the drive, so has to be pulled out first hence the caliper must come off.

Did you use a GSA front wheel for the sidecar?

Rear
The rear disk is normally attached to the diff.
How did yours migrate onto the wheel hub?

This loadshedding is working well for me. Power of at the office this morning, stay at home and work on the sidecar untill the power goes off. Go to work and wait for the paint to dry untill power goes back on at home again. Go work on the sidecar  :lol8:p

Dry fit. And they said technology would make life easier. We have 7 devices to run or charge. Bike and car will now have 9 power points  :eek7: I hear we doing a winter trip next year and I have to install another 12V socket in the front for Wify's electric travelling blanket.  :lol8:

Stand back… amateur electrician at work. But it all works, switch down off the battery, switch up, and runs off mains and power supply.
