Reverse cable adjustment.

Post by m2102 » Wed Dec 27, 2017 8:12 pm



Every once and awhile my 1800 trike will feel like it is in reverse but won't move. When switch is pressed you can feel it wants to. Is their a tutorial or a diy that tells/ shows how to make adjustments? TIA

Before you go through all the adjustments, spray some cleaner on the spring of the actuator, followed by a good dry spray lube.
Blaster makes one and it's available at Home Depot. Don't use anything oily, like WD 40, it will just attract dirt again.
I sent you a PM about the instructions
