Midterm Presentation Comments • Mockup was small and difficult to understand • Fewer hand gestures • A better explanation of the mechanism connecting the motorcycle and the jack would have been helpful
Design Questions 1 Q: Wouldn’t it be easier to initially connect the bike to the jack on the side away from the kickstand? A: Yes, this idea has been incorporated into the design Q: How will the jack attach to the to the foot pegs and frame sliders? A: A tube will slide over the frame sliders. A half tube (00 – 180 0 counterclockwise) mates with the foot pegs.
Design Questions 2 Q: Could you sit on the bike while attaching it to the jack? A: No, we checked and found that you would not be able to reach the jack Q: Will attachment points be adjustable by bike model? A: Yes, the system will be adjustable to the width of the bike, as well as the placement of the foot pegs and frame sliders.
Design Questions 3 Q: How is the jack going to attach a motorcycle that is resting on a kickstand? A: The lifting plate sub assembly in going to be hinged to that it can rotate until its surface is perpendicular to the axis of the bike Q: Will the bike retain its tilted angle when jacked up? A: No, the jack will adjust the angle between the ground and the bike until the angle reaches 90o at maximum lifting height.
Design Questions 4 Q: Are both sides of the bike secured before lifting? A: Yes, the tilted angle of the lifting plate allows both sides of the motorcycle to be secured before the bike is lifted off the ground. Q: What is the estimated cost of the final product A: Not sure yet, but approximately $120
