2007 Gl1800 trike, reverse not working and compressor question

Hi, firstly the reverse on a 2007 trike seems to be trying to work but its as if it's not quite engaging properly with the gear. It's like clicking the prop but not turning it. I see there is adjustment on the cables but not sure which to adjust.
And secondly will the compressor on a 2003 run 2 shocks or will i need to put a tap in to pump up one at a time. It's for a trike.
Cheers Bash

It is likely the cables need adjustment. Kind of hard to explain and the book isn't terribly clear either. Remove the right engine cover, turn the ignition on and push the reverse button, you will see the mechanism rotate, you can turn the ignition off and it will stay. Adjust the lower cable until it takes all the slack out of the upper cable.

There is no compressor on an 1800. It has a hydraulic pump of sorts originally.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

The 1800 can have reverse problems if the battery is weak

Do you think it will work 2 shocks or will i need to put some kind of tap inline.

Are the shocks the same as the OE 1800 shocks? If not then no, it won't work.

IFF the hydraulic cylinders on two shocks were connected the cylinder with most load would push the oil to the cylinder with less load f.ex. when cornering.
To awoid this you would need an complicated system with valves and controlers.

Still not sure the OP understands.
The GL1800 does not have a compressor. It has a hydraulic actuater pump that adjusts a preload spring on the rear mono-shock.
So the answer to the OP's original question is you can not use it for the shocks on a trike conversion.
The question about reverse has been answered by Dave0304
