Fork rebuild

Post by 122970 »



2008 GL1800, 59000 miles, Champion Trike Kit, with EZ-Steer, running 17 on rear shocks, 2 up. Got a lot of bottoming out on highway today while riding. Scraped belly pan several times. Guess it is time for fork springs and steering head bearings. Anyone have part numbers for what I need to do the job? No leaks in seals and anti dive is disabled. Would like to have all necessary parts and tools on hand before taking it down. Thanks in advance

I have used the upgraded progressive springs and have used the traxxion springs but for me the best upgrade is the progressive monotubes that I'm running now. With a fork rebuild kit from wingstuff.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.
