    Default Lehman trike rides very low in rear

    Hi- I'm new to forum and requesting any help or info on my problem- I have a 2013 Goldwing with a Lehmans Monarch II conversion-With 2 up at 340 lbs. the mufflers have 3 and 3/8 inch road clearance- the mufflers have met the road to many times- the trailer hitch when installed has 2 and 7/8 inch road clearance ,without a trailer and it to has done the same thing- I have compared the measurements with other trikes company's and the measurements on mine are 2 and 1/2 to 3 inches lower- I have turned the shock adjustment out I more turn to 5 turns out- any more adjustment and the ride is too stiff- I contact lehmans (Bill) and he said he would look into the issue and no reply after a week- Is there a shock extender that would take care of the problem or any other solution ---Thanks for any info---Hank

    Hank, I cannot help you, but I can give a big Texas welcome. I am sure someone who knows something will be along soon.

    Hank, Welcome to Trike Talk Forum from West Virginia. Do you have the straight axle or the LLS ?
