Has anyone put a chair on their MT500? Any advice on what would be suitable.

Firstly this is the Welcome section which is frequently wiped automatically Post almost anywhere else and you'll be fine

If you do a forum Search on the word Sidecar you get 60 pages of hits

I seem to recall that the critical factor was the positioning, get it right and the rig is fine , but too far forward or back and it is a pig to ride

One member added a sidecar to his MT but then sold the rig and bought a factory made old bike n chair. It was a small engine 300 ish from memory. I remember pushing his MT backwards up my driveway so that he could ride off. He came with his replacement rig and was chuffed to use his 'reverse gear'. I can't remember with it was really a gear or whether the engine could be set up to rotate in either direction like the old Isetta (or was it the Bond? )bubble cars

Another owner does the Ellephantreffen , changing his front sprocket when he hits the hilly part of the trip
