Question on the on board compressor: Adding two six inch air bags instead of the factory type progressive shocks. Wondering if the on board compressor will work with the air bags. one of the shocks rolled over and oil came out where the line connects to it ????

going to be watching this one. . . . . BTW, your swing arm looks MUCH better !

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didnít do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. . . .

...you trust that piece?

...why the plate riveted to the top of the swingarm?

...rust.
I'm with Trike Lady ...rust.
Why would they miter some of it, yet leave the square tube open like that?

Use it for a template and start over..

The plate riveted on, is from Mother Honda . There is a piece of rubber sandwiched under it . I believe it must control some harmonic noise .

True Onewing. Because of the large size "sq in" of the center brace it cuts down noise and vibration, Thus causing the brace to crack.
