Trikes first run
 
Took the trike an the first run tonight and it handles like crap. The front ends all over the place. Iíve never ridden a trike before but I know it shouldnít handle like it is. Any thoughts? Everythingís tight. The rear end is centered.

Details?. Slow and night speed behavior. Effort to turn handlebars. High speed Wobble?

Actually didn’t even get out of first gear. It was just drifting. No wobble.

You mean the front wheel was plowing not rolling in turns?
Could it be a differential issue?
Also, when you roll the bike with engine off in out of the storage, weíre you able to turn it around ?

Stein. In a straight run, it was wondering. When I roll it, it’s fine.
Just an FYI. I

Trikes rake and trail are different than bikes. My cousin had a Frankenstein trike and had to change the triple tress for it to be ride able. Go to the Frankenstein web site and read about it. Hope you get it figured out.

Trikes rear contact patch overpowers the tiny front tire. The best way to dial it in is lower the air pressure in the rear wheels. It will allow the rear tires to flex thier sidewalls before trying to push the front wheel. On my Spyder I can tell the difference in 5lb increments. I imagine a trike will react similar. At least its worth a try.....

Not yet. Been so damn busy. Haven’t even looked at it. Took a video today. Obviously The stance is different on a trike that a bike but When I shake the front end it rocks.
How do I post a video on here?
