2008 Kawasaki vn2000
Hey all, just purchased a 2008 VN2000, it has been converted to a trike with a MotorTrike kit, it's a great ride, done fairly well. That being said, it has one issue I'm trying to correct. The steering is VERY heavy whether traveling in a straight line or a curve at anything over 20mph. Unreasonably heavy in fact. My assumption is that the rake and trail has been altered when the trike kit was installed. I have been raising the rear end with the bags, to some effect, and am looking at lowering the front 2 inches. I had wondered if there was a tripple tree kit that would reverse some of the problem, but most kits i have seen are to increase the rake angle instead of reducing it. I need to increase the rear tire size to correct the speedometer, which should help some. Any other thoughts? Thanks guys!
