I have a 2004, GL1800 trike with a Lehman conversion. How can I pump up my rear shock?

Which Lehman conversion a Monarch I or a Monarch II? Are you talking the Honda shock or the Lehman shock?

With the Lehman rear shock you should have a spanner wrench that came with the trike. On the lower part of the shock at the bottom of the spring is the preload collar which adjusts the tension on the spring. If you have a set of car ramps you can back the trike up on them so you can get room to do this. i would also advise if you havent done this in awhile ,or ever spray behind the collar with some lube and let it soak a bit before trying to turn it to make it that much more easier. FWIW I run my shock in the middle setting and use the Honda shock to fine tune the ride. And while youre under there when was the last time you greased your u-joint?
