Did this two weeks ago, wasn't that tough really. Time consuming, but not brain surgery. I picked up a 2013 trike takeoff shock and a progressive spring. Happy with the results.I did the front, now I realize I should have done the back too. Is there an easy or easier way to replace the rear spring without pulling the tank and spending a fortune on labor?
Just the rear spring is $115 while the complete Race Tech shock is around $750. Granted you get what you pay for, but the RT sight says the stock rear spring is 17 kg/mm and my fat assets should be riding around on a 23 kg/mm spring. Even the correct spring should help--if it's not too much money.
