UTV Motor and Drivetrain / wheel size?
« Last post by Carlriddle on January 04, 2019, 11:12:32 AM »
Pu a set of STU1300 used.  Wanting a more flat wider profile to rear tire so thinking a 12" wide wheel.

What size anybody running 1300's running for wheel?

Hi Phelan,

Tell us a bit about yourself?

Any cool projects on tap?  Prior experience?  

Do you have the winning lotto numbers?

Yep, I’ve got plenty of steel to remake what I need. 
With the new design, I am able to capture the back of the pivot tabs as well as lighten the motor mounts.  Sometimes it’s good to mess up as there is always a better way to get things done. 
 Next spring trip probably won’t happen.  Just too much going on.

I like/believe these too:  Henry Ford “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”  “Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.”

Well, I done messed up....
So, my vertical spread on my inner center section is 10".  In theory this is fine, however when the center of your axle is 3.5" above the bottom pivot, the upright will not fit into the 14" wheel.... or a 15" wheel......  I found this minor detail after the center section is all tacked together.
Well shit.  I will have the vertical spread at 8" now.  I KNOW this will work as I drew up some templates and mocked things up. 
I should have looked at this a long time ago. 

I have the new drawings made up as well as motor mounts now.  One step back, but now I can go 3 steps ahead of that.....after I get back from Philly.

Here is a large piece of scrap.  HAA  I can re use the tubes though.  This Sunday I should have the new center tacked up with the motor mounts in place.  The new design will be a little better in the long run too.
