    Now here we go again, said I never own a Chinese bike again but the Jialing JH600B-A (green army version) has been ordered, lets wait and see how it all plays out with delivery time, registration, etc.

    Besides updated electrics (ECU, FI, etc.), any other upgrades / improvements to the previous JL JH600B sidecar versions? Any feedback welcome and appreciated.
    Have a nice "rain-free" weekend wherever you are......

    Congrats on your purchase. I have seen the marketing material for the new JH600B-A and it showed that the sidecar now has the power outlet on the dash, in the same way as the two-wheeled JH600. My 2010 "B" did not have the outlet, but I installed one for pittance (50 rmb, I recall).

    The one other required upgrade is a decent set of horns. The stock horn is quite pathetic.

    I put the large hand protectors on, until my sidecar passenger complained that the right side protector deflected wind directly onto their face.

    I also put a sidecar step on (there are two openings for it to be easily mounted).

    The sidecar windscreen that is sold on taobao for about 150 rmb is total garbage. I had a one custom-made, out of thick plexiglass. Cost about 800 rmb, but was worth it.

    Finally, I put a heavy plastic mat in the sidecar to help reduce the noise.

    Good luck with the order, reg & plating.

    Butch, there are quite a few JH600Bs in Shanghai, including the new -A version -- maybe even more than there are JH600 two-wheelers. Nostalgie has one of each, and has ridden the hell out of his JH600B. Should be a great source of experience and knowledge.

    cheers!

    Everything seems so simple and frill-less when you ride a Multistrada! haha
    Well congrats on the bike!

    Not sure Army Green is the perfect Hainan Island Cruiser color....Would you consider giving the bike a paint job?
    I've yet to see a JB with cool paint.

    These sidecars have some "island flair" inspiration:

    Congrats on receiving the new toy. Nice pics! The green background looks good!

    Now I have seller's remorse.

    I see that the "B-A" does indeed have a console power outlet ... and I am envious of the new ECU!

    I think Motokai has been hanging out too much with those Uigh*rs in Fumin Lu, or maybe reading too much Bikeexif:

    I was thinking about painting the JH600 Desert Tan, with a matt black frame..... or paint it "Safari" style like my now sold CJ 750
