Undercarriage leg clamp

Postby hobson » Sat Jun 30, 2018 9:21 pm

Hi all, was helping a chap inspect his ul450 yesterday, checked the fore and aft movement of the undercarriage and found a fair amount of movement on the port side, I was able to tighten the front clamp bolt but not the rear, can anyone advise on where the nut for this is? the front is clearly visible under the side of the seat but the rear I cannot see.

Not 100% sure. But think it is in front of the tank. You might have to release the strap that hold the tank in place and have a look. Or have a look in the manual! The manuals are free to download from the Jabiru web site. They aren't to bad either. Is the tape still in postion between the leg and the clamp.

Thanks Matt, the rubber tape is in place in the leg clamp, how much can the tank move in situ?

You should be able to move the tank enough to get to the bolt head

On my SPL-450 there is a cutout just to the left/right of the seat where I can get a socket on to the rear bolts. Not sure if this is standard. I just remove the seat covers and then I am able to access all the undercarriage bolts. I managed to change them without removing or moving the tank.

No cutout on the UL - can you send a pic? Perhaps I can retro mod a cutout...
