EZ Steer rake kit opinions and needed

Postby tricycle » Fri Aug 03, 2012 12:53 am



Can anyone tell me if there is a brand of EZ Steer rake kit that is better than another, have you changed to a 4.5 or 6 degree kit and if so what are the pros and cons you have found.
I am looking for a EZ steer rake kit to fit a 2002 1800 GL trike. I would like a complete used kit with all bearings and mountings that come with a new. I thought at one time I found a online site that had new for around $500 but I can't find the site now. If you have a excellent used kit or a site that has new for a really good price let me know, please.

Gave you a source to check on your other thread!
I prefer and have the 4.5 degree kit on my Wing/Hannigan. 95% of my riding is high way riding with a trip to the twisties thrown in maybe, once a year!
IMHO, a 6deg kit is to "twitchy" for me on the open road, while it is great if you ride the curves all the time.

I hope you will stay away from EZ-Steer. I received my ez-steer with the bearing being pressed on so hard it would not turn and the threads for the top nuts were damaged. The person in charge claimed that I had done the damage myself and refused to exchange the parts. He did offer to sell me a new lower bearing for $57 plus shipping, wow! Good thing I had a good machine shop nearby who cut the bearing off and straighten the threads. Cost me but better than having to scrap the kit. Not sure where Dawg has sent you but I suggest you look at this Kits and save $300.
