Reiterating Previously Published Limits - Applies to all Bearhawk Models

We have observed that some Bearhawks are set up with the gear legs spread out too far. When the landing gear is spread wider than design limits, the landing gear system is weakened. Measure from the center of each tire, at the front of the tire.
Adjustment can be made at the rod end at the top of the shock strut. Recommended minimum thread engagement of the rod end is 5/8".

  Spread at Typical Flying Weight Maximum Allowed Width
Bearhawk 4-Place, Patrol, Companion, and Five 72 Inches 74 Inches
Bearhawk LSA 66-68 Inches 70 Inches
