Default Exchanging the geomtry in the LES motorBike tutorial

I guess this problem is fairly easy, but after 3 days of trying i decided that it is time to ask for help.

I want to exchange the geometry in the incompressible/pisofoam/les/motorbike - Tutorial. Sounds fairly easy right?
Without changes, the tutorial is working, except that i can only view the uncomposed results in the end or experience a paraView crash.

So i decided to delete the line from Allrun-script that copies the geometry from the tutorial. I put my own geometry that is called "motorBike.stl" in the triSurface folder and exchange the geometry name in the snappyHexMesh.dict (that before was motorBike.obj).
I also changed the vertices of the blockMesh and the searchable box of snappy hex mesh.

The settings for vertices,searchable box and the geometry are from a steady state case i set up on the usual motorBike tutorial and are working perfectly fine there.
Although i think there is a minor error in the geometry, as paraView crashes trying to open it. I tried to convert my stl to obj using meshlab, but can't figure out how it is done.

Thanks in advance and best regards,
