REAR LIFT / 1.25 inch Shock Brackets
Why 1.25 inch Shock and 7/16 inch Rear Tour Box Lift?
I started looking at how a Tri-Glide sat low in rear while reading a forum on Internet. Jerry Leonard out of North Carolina had flame cut some replacement shock brackets for his trike. Looking at pictures of his trike, I liked the new look of it being level.
Having experience with designing and cutting parts on a water jet machine, I saw this was a perfect part to use with this type of technology. Speaking with Jerry I learned he had ran both 1.5 and 1.25 inch lifts. I drew new designs for a 1, 1.25 and 1.5 inch lift and cut test sets. I found location of shock mount was critical and adjusted design. I have ran all three sizes on my personal 2011 Tri-Glide.
I found the 1 inch brackets not worth the time to install. Thinking more is better, I installed the 1.5 inch set. I found the look was very appealing, trike looked like one would think it should look and tested it for 3000 miles. What I found was low speed handling was improved, sitting position seemed more comfortable and overall appearance of trike was more pleasing. The down side was at highway speeds, I found the steering much more sensitive to rider input. Even after 3000 miles I felt uncomfortable with steering, not unsafe, but thought it was too much lift.
I then installed the 1.25 inch lift, thinking that with only .25 inch less lift it would not make allot of difference. I was proved wrong. This size lift, I feel, was the perfect compromise in both appearance and handling of the Tri-Glide. Trike sat level and both low and high speed handling were improved.
The Trike with a 1.25 inch lift still leaves the Tour Box and its lights sitting a little low in rear. I found that a lift at rear of box finished off the leveling of trike for appearance. I also wanted the ability to move Tour Box back for more passenger room. I found that the box could be moved up to two inches without any wiring modifications. After three test fittings of rails, I found the 1 inch wide aluminum rails both fit the application and kept material at a reasonable cost. I believe the overall design, fit and finish of these rails along with the reasonable cost, makes raising both the trike and Tour Box affordable.
