tri king trike sits very low

Post by toddla44 » Mon Sep 02, 2019 9:30 am



I have a 1999 GL1500A with a tri-king trike kit and it sits very low, literally drags the ground when pulling out of driveway (my drive does not have a slope). Would larger rims be a fix? It rides great, just bottoms out a lot and I worry about damaging the underneath.

Is your rear suspension adjustable? I have a CSC cobra and I can adjust the pre-load on the rear suspension.

I have a TriKing trike.

Couple things to check.

1) Measure the distance between the front fender and the fairing. Should be 5.5-6.0 inches.
2) If you have ALS, make sure it's working, and the bags are holding air.
