O:k followers. was going to back the trike off the platform tonight. Now a couple times after sitting for a while i had to put in first then neutral bofore it would go in reverse. this was the cause tonight. So I put in the gear and it stalled, Three times. Now I know something is up. After a couple minutes of thought I remembered I disconnected the Kick stand switch. SO .......................................I'm guessing I need to plug it back in and just tie it up. Any thoughts???

also looking for some ideas on mounting the back side of the side battery cover. I use to mount into the front of the side saddle bags. Of course there gone now. Not sure what to do with them. I'll post a pic later.

Sorry Bob. well first time out and Found the steering to be Something that wants to control itself. Lots of wobble in the steering and resistance in the steering. (hard to steer) This is how I started tire pressure-----20 .lbs in the rear tires and 31 .lbs front. went to i think 39 front and 30 rear. I spoke to someone that has built a couple and his suggestion was 41 front and drop the left rear to 20 and right rear to 22. Or lower in rear if needed but keep the 2 pond split in rear. In addition the rear gear selection seems to high. (308) I have the stock tree as well.
