2015 Honda Goldwing

Postby Chitimacha » Sat Oct 11, 2014 11:35 pm



Good Day All

I just ordered a 2015 Goldwing 40th anniversary edition should get it in January I plan to install a CSC Trike kit. Does anyone have a trike kit from CSC and what are the pros and cons

Thanks
Darrell

This could be considered a "wet blanket" response but, here goes.
1. Strongly suggest you test ride a Wing w/a Hannigan conversion before committing to the CSC!
a. Much less maintenance on a Hannigan
b. Rear end is offset to align w/the Wings drive shaft output. No severe drive shaft angle as on the CSC.
2. Are you aware of warranty issues converting a new any kind of bike to a trike??
While it seems to depend on the dealer or whether Mother Honda finds out the bike has been triked or not, warranty claims on especially drive train failures may or may not be denied.
3. You will be limited on the dealers where you can get service work done as most are not set up to service trikes.
Sorry about this negativism but, like all to understand some of the implications one faces when considering converting.
These were the same issues I faced when deciding to trike or not. I decided to go for it and never regretted that decision

Thinking about changing the front end also to the 180 tire would you see any problems with this set up

I really like my Goldwings and I have owned 7 of them. Why not try a Can-Am Spyder? My son has one and they are great if you want a 3 wheeled bike. Ride is fantastic as well as the performance. You don't void any warranties.

My daughter bought one of the first 2,500 Spyder's when released. She still has it and likes it but she does not ride it much. Think she puts maybe a thousand miles a year on it. Me, I hate it. It seems to find every bump in the road and going around corners is not fun do to the opposite way you need to lean. But there are allot of them out there.

I would agree that the first Spyders didn't go around the corners and the front dipped. The 2014's have changed drastically. New front sway bar to eliminate the dipping. The air ride suspension is great. It levels and adjusts as you ride. I think it rides better than my 2013 Wing. I still like the leaning part and the 2 wheel experience but I would put the new Spyder up to any 3 wheel conversion on a Wing for ride and comfort. Just my opinion.

If you look at the CanAm Spyder and related models you might also consider the Polaris Slingshot. It is a little different and does have side by side seating for two and a steering wheel.

Also there is a trike conversion, the RT18, for the Gold Wing that puts the two wheels up front like the Spyder or Slingshot. I think it is from Europe but is handled in the states by Genes Gallery in Springfield, MO.

I have 2001 with 2011 CSC conversion I absolutely love mine. My cousin owns local Honda dealer where I live and his HO is that all the conversions Are good but the most important thing is the installer. I would check out all the different conversions and see which one you like the best MHO is CSC has the best design and ride. Each conversion has their own website. Do a lot of investigating. You'll love 3 wheels. Make sure you get a rake kit on front, will make steering a lot easier. Good luck with whatever you get ride it like you stole it.
