Medium Size Wheels

From my experience the Jabiru fitted with the medium size wheels will require a lot of material removed from the spats to give clearance. On the main wheels the concern is not only ground clearance but tyre clearance allowing enough space for the tyre to bulge under load. Special attention should be applied to the nose spat bearing in mind that as the nose leg suspension compresses, the spat will tilt nose down and it is possible that on soft ground that the wheel will run over the front of the spat. Locate the extreme end screw holes for the nut plates after cutting away the excess material otherwise you may have cut away an area where you had the screw.
