mega-m.a.x

mega m.a.x is our standard measuring system for motorcycles. It determines the geometrical status of the motorcycle frame and chassis independently from potential damage of the front fork. Measurements of all relevant components are possible, such as: main frame, rear frame, swing arm, brackets for fairings, etc. Only the front fork is excluded, which will be measured with the f.e.in gauge. As a result of close cooperation with BMW-Motorrad regarding the measurements of their innovative chassis concepts, the results meet BMW requirements.

Measuring procedure  The bracket is normally mounted in the central drillings of the swing arm axle. If necessary, make use of the various adapters supplied with the system. The arm for the adjustment of the inclination of the bracket should be mounted, for instance, underneath the seat. The target bracket is attached without adjustments to the front fork with the help of the universal arm. Connecting the computer, used for the measurement to the system, starting the software and selecting the appropriate model will lead directly to the measuring program. Follow the advice of the program by turning the front fork to both sides and let the system take its readings. Two CCD‐ measuring cameras determine the steering head axis based on the rotary movement of the infrared LEDs at the target bracket mounted to the front fork. If necessary, take the readings for the rear frame, swing arm or any other required measuring point. For this purpose, position the laser on the back of the measuring bracket according to the advice of the program. The final judgment of the measurement is a straightforward procedure due to the easy‐to‐understand tables and graphics of the Scheibner-Chassis-Certificate.

CMS

The CMS (Chassis maximizing system) offers an optional extension for racing purposes. It provides the relevant figures for the complete motorcycle on the road, such as trail, rake, swing arm down‐ slope, front height, etc. A simulation program, based on the exact measured dimensions of the specific motorcycle, delivers answers to the ‘what if’ questions, such as “How can I reinstall my previous set‐up after mounting new and maybe bigger tyres?” and “What can be done if the rider complains about limited grip while accelerating at the end of the curve?”.

Measuring procedure  The CMS is mounted to the left centring pin of the mega‐m.a.x. The basic measurement is preceded with the mega‐m.a.x. The adjustable lasers on the posts provide the precise position of the front and rear wheel axis. The resulting printout displays the figures of the measurement.

f.i.x

f.i.x system was specifically designed in order to measure scooters. It provides the information necessary to determine whether the scooter still meets the technical standards of the manufacturer after accidents or other cases of doubt. It works quick and usually without any dismantling.

Measuring procedure  f.i.x compares the position of the front wheel to the rear wheel. With the help of three special adaptors, two bases are fixed to each rim. The two integrated shafts at each base with the laser and the mirror this way are positioned precisely parallel to the wheel axis. With the help of the adjusting device connecting the two bases, the user installs the front wheel precisely in the straight‐ahead position. The laser beam will now be reflected right into its origin by the mirror at the front base. The laser beam is directed to the indicator hanging at the handlebars by turning the laser accordingly. After positioning the laser beam at the indicator via the mirror at the front base, the difference between both readings is obvious. The resulting Scheibner scooter measuring protocol displays the camber, the wheel distance and the wheel offset. The state of the frame and the front fork are verified relatively to the reference index data of the database. With a true result, the frame and the front fork are ready for further use. The not‐true result requires further investigation (for example with the mega‐m.a.x) in order to determine precisely which part is damaged: the frame and/or the front fork.

f.e.in

f.e.in measures the front fork without dismantling. It determines precisely deviations of the front fork major components, such as distortion of the triple clamps (yokes) and/or deflection of the stanchions. In some cases, removal of the front wheel or the stanchions will be necessary.

Measuring procedure  A dial gauge determines the rock of the precisely ground plate on the stanchions. After unfastening the bolts, the tubes are turned stepwise. Repeated measurements of the rock provide information regarding the state of the tubes and the triple clamps. The readings are then transferred to the software. The results are displayed in the resulting printout.
For the wide front forks of the various cruiser models, an extended version of the plate is available.

R.V.Arm

With the R.V.Arm device, brake discs and wheels are measured without any dismantling.
The large clamp allows the universal arm to be attached almost anywhere, e.g. to the outer tubes of the stanchions. A secure positioning of the dial gauge on the brake disc or the rim is therefore very easy to achieve. In this way, the wheel or brake‐disc runout can be measured faster and more reliably than with the dismantled wheel on a wheel‐runout stand. The small dial gauge of the f.e.in device is perfectly suited in combination with the R.V.Arm.

Size of clamp: 105 mm
Max. distance between clamp and dial gauge: 240 mm
Weight (without dial gauge): 1.260 g

Standard equipment: R.V.Arm without dial gauge
