    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.

    Check the Ball Joint area in picture. Possible culprit!

    3rd picture is pointing to ball joint boot.

    Turns out the steer lite had been installed incorrectly by whowver built the trike. Wrong bolts used and fork tubes moved in the assembly.
