Modified OEM guard .................off to the diesel thread  :wave
Thank's for info on the guard. 

We are considering building a cradle to sit the engine in instead of using it as a structural member.  Any thoughts on that?

Also....... when Im able to actually do a "build" thread if you dont mind....... lets make that it's own thread. This thread is now to broad a scope to  put the build into.

build pics/discussion starting. Sticking with Chain drive and mounting engine similar manner to  OEM engine. (no cradle as considered earlier)

Should this portion go into a new thread under Steamer's?

no
OKy Doky. :wave  Our brains must organize material differently :qgaraduate. Or maybe it's too much Kubota for you to sit in the Steamer forum LOL. 

Should it be a Tribota Tiger when done

some updates.  Curtis had been busy, ill, busy, injured, ill but back to go at it again.

. bent up temporary cradle to hold diesel engine.  Once all figured out will bend new tube.
. rubber mounting cradle for vibration dampening
. Crash bars - custom- will be big part of  new stress member to supplement  down tubes as a strength member since they will have anti vibration mounts on cradle.  Cradle is becoming a strength member where on the Tiger the engine is a strength member.
. Suzukie bike alternator modified to fit Kubota (mine had not alt.).   35 amp which if I read right is 10 amps more than Steamer and will also not have ignition load so should be plenty of juice for other things?

Suzuki Motorcycle Alternator modified to fit the Kubota alternator mount.  The original Idler pulley that was mounted here (no alternator model engine) was milled out to fit the alternator and heated, installed and cooled. This method locked the pulley to the shaft like stuck fornicating  dogs.   :bug_eye  Course later in the build it was discovered alternator won't work in that location.  Go figure.  Modifications to the alternator will still be utilized though



Diesel's clatter (like duhhh) so to be able to isolate that from the frame and the rider the decision was made to use a basket/Cradle like traditional bikes instead of using the engine as a structural member as OEM Triumph Steamer's do.  Could not do both structural member AND  vibration isolators engine mounts with out compromising it too much as a structural member.   In one pic you can see the CVT drive mocked up.   On the second Tiger (Curtis's) he will do a double chain to a Harley Ultima 6speed in a more traditional Motorcycle arrangement.   Oil filter will have to be remotely mounted to move alternator to that area.

 Once all is done will see if the Sump Guard purchased thru here will be utilized.  If not it will go up for sell here along with the engines broke down to individual parts .
