Then you may like this Put a 155/60R15 car tire on the 750 Street with sidecar to replace factory 140/75R15 . And it ricks so far. I did ride the bike a bit with the sidecar removed it work well also.

I dont get much time to ride right now due to having 2 jobs and farm work. But once the second job is done I'll have my weekends back. I ride an 18 road glide. I would possibly buy another bike for the sidecar is funds are there. When I do ride I like 300 to 500 mile days mostly 2 lane roads and scenic routes.

On some thing like a RG or RGU you going to want a heftier car. The lower coast ones are a bit light for the bike. Sidecar setup right is great for 300-500 mile day on scenic roads.
Budget is a big issue to figure out. Setting one and find out of you desires and needs can be met with in it.
Example: The sidecar on my 750 Street has $4,000 tied up in it. That would be every last penny. The one on the RGU would come out to about $15,000 . Yours falls some where between those two numbers. There is a Brand of lighter sidecar That is not junk you can get the Hack for under 3 grand. You may want to look them over.

The two best places IMO are Hannigan and DMC. You will see statements like this from many manufactures, don't bet on it there may still need to be a little to a lot of fab work to make the mounts work.

MOUNTING HARDWARE: - The Universal Mounting Kit makes it possible to attach the sidecar to virtually any current motorcycle with round tube frame, custom fabrication may or may not require depends on model and year of your bike.

The hankook 426 car tire served me well on the rear of the bike with sidecar. Traction was great dry , wet and snow, wear was 4 times a motorcycle tire. the 426 is a cheaper tire so this time trying a better rated tire. Michelin Premier A/S this time. 195/60R16 do not offer a lot of options . Goes on Friday.
