    Default Champion GL1800 IRS Trike Shock Question

    I have a 2012 Gl1800 and one of the rear shocks is starting to leak a little and I would like to know if anyone has replaced one of these yet with something other than one from Champion.

    Thanks

    Hello Jim. Happy New Year! Did you ever get your shock situation resolved? I still have the New pair we discussed but never heard anything more from you .

ID:	111501 2 questions, I bought this little girl last year and love it. Question since you guys are talking suspension...This is a Champion conversion with IRS. Honestly coming off a two wheeler I find the ride very "rigid". Is that typical or should the ride be smooth? What lube am I buying to lube the drive shaft U-joints?
