    No problem Jim, and thanks for taking time time, I had most of it sorted out. Dick was a interesting guy to talk with and would gladly share his time about the early development of the Road Smith.

    Default Bleed rear brakes

    Iíve had my RS trike for 3years and wife and I love it. We wished we would have done it sooner.

    My question is, when bleeding the rear brakes is their a sequence to bleeding them? Mine have started to have to be pumped 2-3times for them to feel right and stop the trike like it should be.

    Bleed the left rear first, then the right rear. If it still wont get a firm pedal, call Roadsmith and ask for Mike.

    It might be a safety feature. Below is from their website:

    Electric Reverse

    A unique and cool option we have developed is our Electric Reverse System. This electric motor is not just a starter motor, but rather an extremely high torque 12V motor that goes through a gear reduction to produce huge torque. To operate the reverse, simply lift the lever on the left side to engage the electric motor's gear directly into the front of the belt's sprocket. One you've engaged the motor simply push and hold the bike's horn button down to back you up. When done, put the engagement lever back down and the horn button will be a horn button again.There is a safety built in so if you put the bike in gear while the lever is up, the horn sounds! You'll probably only do that once.
