    Go with your gut. Which one gave you the best vibes? Does solid axle or independent enter into the mix? Unfortunately for me the choices aren't as great or clear.

    The CSC has removable skirts allowing access to the rear tires. All other kits require body removal for changing the rear wheels. Just something to consider.

    That might be a big one to consider. But is it difficult to remove it or does it have to be done very often? And why would it need to be removed? Tire change? Are the skirts removable on the Hannigan? Randy?????? I know you install them. Is this really a concern? All I have are questions unfortunately but I'm learning as YOU go.

    The skirts on the Hannigan Indian conversions were not removable and yes the body had to be removed to change a tire, but they have recently changed that and the rear fender skirts are removable now. CSC, Roadsmith nor Hannigan require body removal to change a tire on any of their conversions.

    My Roadsmith does not require body removal to change a tire. I recently took both tires out to have it balanced.

    IRS versus SA

    I know that some think that IRS rides better than SA or that IRS handles better. IRS will let the trike lean out in a corner and this lean out, if pushed hard enough, will both increase steering effort as the front tire still leans out with the trike ... and increase the effort required of riders and especially co-riders to hang on. IRS might mean a better ride when applied to a 4 (or more) wheeled vehicle which may not always have all wheels in the same plane …

    ... but with a three wheeler, you are always riding a wheeled tripod with both IRS or SA and all three wheels will always be in the same plane. I've ridden both, there is no discernable difference in ride quality. When you see a group of pot holes, you still have three tracks under you to steer through them. When that left rear hits a pot hole at 55 mph, you won't feel a difference between IRS or SA.

    Most sales people don’t lie they just tell customers what they want them to think they Heard ! This way later on if questioned About what they said then they can use plausible deniability😄.. if it isn’t in writing it was never said 😱..
