Cabin Bike Enclosed Motorcycle Landing Gear
First generation (2012 - 2018)
The first generation landing gear is completely mechanical. It uses a 12 volt 5000 lb winch reconfigured to be used without the spool. Stop switches prevent movement when the gear has reached it's limit of travel. A bank of 4 large FORD starter solenoids and two small relays reverse motor polarity. Rod ends allow for fine tuning and adjustment. A transverse rod keeps the two landing gear arms in sync with each other. This first generation landing gear was replaced with the simplified 2nd generation pneumatic configuration in 2018.
TIP: Some of the common parts for our landing gear are available directly through popular national vendors, see details within the landing gear parts list for more information.
(Above) We don't recommend you try this at home, but here we demonstrate how strong the landing gear motor actually is by lifting the bike with the landing gear.
