    Default Steering is too hard on 2010 goldwing with roadsmith conversion

    I am new to a trike and the steering I think is way too hard roadsmith raked front when it was triked bike only has 7000 miles on it have tried different tire pressure and air sup.ride but has not done a lot of good, any suggestions. I have rode 2 wheelers since 1967 don't think I am going to like riding trike.

    Jimmy a slight possibility that the steering stem was over torqued. The torque should be 40lbs. One test is slightly lift the front so front tire can just swing but not higher. Pull it all the way in one direction. Let go and see if it swings. It should swing back most of the way in the other direction. If it does not move or moves less than back to Stright I would bet on the over tightened stem.
