spare tire mount
« on: July 12, 2017, 08:16:43 AM »
I know this subject has been brought up before, however it was quite a while ago.
I have heard that the CF rear mount has had issues with the welds breaking, I have seen other people have modified Polaris front bumpers to put them on the rear of the Moto.
Anyone see an issue with taking a Hub assembly with the rotor and mounting (rotor down ) onto the top a rear cargo box?  The rotor holes give an endless option of where to put the mounting bolts, then just mount the spare (probably inverted for spacing) onto the hub?
Just a thought... what are yours?

I don't see anything wrong with that...as long as the box can take the constant pounding. I once mounded my chainsaw on the lid of my box on my Brute but found the constant pounding it took almost ripped the lid off.

Not sure about the Box being able to take the pounding...I got this one (idea from another thread)

Almost guarantee the bucking will yank the lid right off in a short time.

I agree.  Also the rotors are not really meant to hold that kind of weight and pounding.  You really just need a hub (anything 4x110 - Yamaha Rhino, Kawi Brute force, Honda rancher 420 and many others) and make it attache to a SOLID part of the SxS like the rear bumper of the roll cage cross bar.
I can imagine a world completely at peace.  A world where there are no weapons, no war, and no violence at all.  And I can imagine us taking over that world because they would never expect it.

Wow I would not of thought that lying the tire on top of that box would cause a lot of stress, but I see your point.
I ordered a hub that comes with the rotor, It has the 4-110 bolt pattern, so maybe Ill see if I can as you suggest mount that to the rear bumper tube somehow.
Ill post whatever I end up doing.. waiting on parts to arrive now.
I saw someone had inverted and mounted a Polaris RZR front bumper onto the rear of his.  It looked really good, but I think it may impede getting at the latch to open my cargo box.
I see a Rhino front bumper on Craigslist for 75 bucks... Maybe Ill track that down. Cant hurt to have extra bars hanging around the  trailer.

You know.. I have never needed a spare...now I have popped a bead and got a flat but a small 12V compressor and a tire repair kit with plugs was all that was necessary....really didn't even need the small scissors jack I carry.. and that all fits in the compartments and box easy.

NMKawierider Knock on wood buddy.... I also carry those things but the rocks I have been going over recently are shale, and I only have the stock tires on it now.  So I just want to be prepared.  Also I ride a lot during the week when the trails are less crowded so with no help around I would rather have it and not need it.
I wanted a spare, dealer quoted me 385 for rim and tire.  Found a deal online from someone unwilling to separate 4 new rims plus 8 tires (2) sets for 950, I couldn't pass that up... #overprepared

How did you pop the bead back into place on the trail with just the basics?   With my old cart I always carried a spare tire and bottle jack to replace tire ... but never needed to.   I am a bit concerned about the 2-ply tires.  I have plugs and a compressor but was thinking about getting a spare tire / rim to mount as well.

I had my buddy run his wench line to the upper part of my roll cage and pull it enough to lift the tire off the ground. Then it was just a matter of clearing the bead and pulling it back onto it while applying air. The back side wasn't popped.

Can't run those 2-ply tires forever. I went with good 8-ply radial for piece of mind.

Mate, this really depends if your getting it for practicality or for looks. If you are getting it encase of a flat, I would recommend just getting a can of that instant inflate foam and a puncture repair kit. It takes 5 mins to fix a puncture from flat to driving again. It saves alot of space and weight on the buggy.

Just a thought anyway, this is what I do and it works for me. But if you want it for looks/style, then just buy the hub=rotor combo on ebay.

Dragon, that looks great!!!
Andrew, I carry plug kit and sealer, just want to be ready for a more catastrophic failure.  I can't say that I am looking to add a tire and weight just for "looks" I don't like having to carry extra stuff that I don't need on a day to day basis.  That being said, I am riding a lot during "off peak" days when I wouldn't want to be stuck out in the middle of the woods.
