    Default Raking Trike

    Ok brothers, Have a 2009 Harley FLHTC. It was a conversion by a company called Blackburne. Great job but no rake. Handles like a truck without power steering. What rake do I need. And do I have to extend the tubes. ???

    It looks like they install Roadsmith and Motortrike conversions. Do you know which kit you have?

    Welcome to Trike Talk

    A rake will improve steering

    Get a hold of Kevin here from D K Customs

    He may have a source for adjustable tripple trees for your bike

    Here is the link to the MotorTrike site with their triple trees http://www.motortrike.com/RakeKit/RakeKit.aspx

    I have not experience with them, so you should get some input from Zook and hopefully others with MotorTrike conversions will chime in.

    Welcome to Trike Talk. Usually a 4.5 to 5 degree with 1" spacers will do the trick.
