    Sorry for not responding sooner!

    It was a lot of work as there is two ways to do this change out. From below and from the top which I elected to do. This means everything removable has to come off to gain access to the fuel tank which has to be removed to gain access to the shock that is tied into the Honda system. One has to be careful in removing the shock bolts as they are under tension. One has to lift the Lehman body frame ever so slightly to accomplish this.

    Installing the Traxxion shock was pretty much a plug n play.

    Once everything was on line the Honda was started and the load bar came up and the brains in the Honda was satisfied all was well. I was in a conversation with a chap yesterday who is very familiar with what I was doing only to be surprised that in fact I did the switch out and it works as it is supposed to.

    Now the 64,000 dollar question, is the ride better. From my limited experience I would say it is somewhat firmer especially at highway speeds.

    Would I attempt this all over again, You Bet!

    Hello Jim: I would like to know if there is a different shock that can be used on my 2002 lehman monarch 1 trike thinking about a air shock, I have replace the line to the main shock and refilled and blead with a whole lot of help. Adjusted the coil over shocks to highest setting and still can not get this trike off the ground. I have manufactured a new trailer hitch with the help of your picture and with it on it a little to close to ground with trailer and pass. on bike. So do you or anyone have a number for the coil over shocks so I can research the number and see if I can get air shocks. Or does anyone know the number or product number for air shocks. Thanks

    Lynn,

    You should probably call me to discuss. There are various ways to gain clearance of the hitch.
