    Default Tri Glide rear shock settings

    What setting are you running on the rear shock for a 22 Tri Glide for a softer ride? I have also started running the rear tires at 24 PSI to help soften the ride.

    If you read the manual, it depends on the riders weight and if you have any passenger/ luggage add it in also..

    The 2019 & on coilovers are way too stiff imo. Before I upgraded to pro action, I ran them on 0 for a halfway decent ride. This is on Free with 235 lb payload😁

    I agree...I'm running at 0 and still a bit firm. I just ordered a pair of 14.5" SuperShox and are being custom built for specifications.

    I run 0 setting on rear shocks, and 24 psi in rear tires. Probably 230-240 all up load. 21 TG

    Most all agree the settings in the owners manual are wrong

    Try several settings til it feels right for you

    Tire pressure too is a personal choice, many have played with 22-24 PSI

    When did they put shocks on them ? I thought my 2020 was still a hard tail ?

    I have a 2021 and set mine at 10 and haven't changed it 1 or 2 riders. The biggest difference to my ride was installing the DK lift brackets and running 20psi in the rear tires, steering seemed easier and ride is much improved. I also use the Sykik Trike tire pressure monitor system to monitor pressures.

    Mine went in a carboard box for a softer ride.

    Video on settings on the coil over HD Trike shocks, and how to adjust them-



    Trike Series Shocks is what I did to get a softer, more compliant ride.
