    Default Damage to front suspension?

    06 K1200lt hannigan with steer-lite. Hit huge pot hole with front tire. Loud boom, but trike continued on home. Notice front fender rubbing on tire and side pieces had separated. Then notice front of bike had nose dived closer to top of front fender almost tould ouching. Could the steer- lite triple tree have broke or did the forks move in the triple tree. Trike still rides fine except for tire rubbing.

    Default Damage to front suspension!

    Check the Ball Joint area in picture. Possible culprit!
