    Default Lehman Monarch Trunk Lid

    Hello everyone. I just purchased a 2007 Goldwing with a Lehman trike conversion. The trunk lid does not appear to close tightly(there is a gap) and leaks water when washing or when it rains. My question is if there is any adjustment to try and tighten the lid closer to the seal and if anyone else has this same problem. Thanks

    Rodney...you might try posting this problem in the Lehman Trike forum. Our resident Lehman expert Lee H. Man (Jim) monitors that forum pretty closely.

    Dan, There is no simple answer to adjusting the trunk door since there are a lot of adjustments to make the door respond. First, you need to identify if the gap in the door when closed is the same at top and sides. The upper portion of the door seal creates a valley that water can lay in until you open the door. Then GUSH !!

    You can contact me through my website with an email. www.mjtrikes.com

    I suppose when I get some time I should make a detailed Monarch II Trunk Door procedure pdf.

    Default Lehman trunk lid

    Thanks. I will have a closer look to see if the gap is equal all around.

    Mine is not a Mon-II, mine is a GTL with two simple hinges and a latch, and when I bought it I was warned about hard rains or washing sprays. I fiddled with latch adjustment until it seemed I no longer got water inside the trunk near the door. My dry test was opening and shutting on strips of paper looking for "drag" as pull paper out.

    Then I bought a roll of weatherstrip that in cross section, is a hollow round section with a flat side that has stickum on it. Mine has a wide lip. It was some little bit higher than what Lehman used, so I just spent a spell adding, trimming the new around outside perimeter of Lehman's stuff, can't recall last time had moisture in trunk but it's withstood several good rain rides. My latch is set so a light push catches first notch, but I place a palm at center top and give it a push as I lean into it … to latch in tightest position.

    I should maybe have added that when I do wash it, I remove the spray head from my hose and set water flow to a little more than a trikle for rinse. I'm guessing, maybe 1/4" gap between door "lip" and body of trike all around.
