Reverse on trike

Post by penguinlvr57 »



I have a 2002 GL1800 with a Champion trike conversion kit. I'm having trouble with my reverse. It goes a few seconds, usually only 3-5 feet, then taps out. If I put it back in neutral, then in reverse again, it goes again but does the same thing. It isn't making any clicking noise or anything. The guy I originally bought it from said it doesn't sound like a pin problem, possibly a relay. I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to mechanic stuff. I try to take care of my stuff though. I called a local Honda shop but they can't get it in for almost a month. The guy there said he's never seen one that it wasn't the pin, and it's super expensive to repair. Help!

Sounds like it might be tripping the protection.

Plenty of topics here that cover that if you search a little.
Here is one example.
