This will greatly increase your stopping power when in Trike configuration. With InstaTrike installed remember the outrigger wheels.<br><br> Use caution not to run them into objects. Keep your feet up at all times. Important Notices InstaTrike is designed for use on paved surfaces only.<br><br> Use of InstaTrike on unpaved terrain may void warranty.

Hitch Diagrams InstaTrike Installation 1.<br><br> Place your motorcycle on a smooth level surface and attach leveling jack stands. 2. Push the hitch mount into the receiver hitch.<br><br> (this might be a little difficult until you get use to doing it. Removing the paint from the hitch mount and applying a little grease will help.) 3. Place the hitch pin through the receiver hitch and hitch mount ( alignment plate ).<br><br> Install and tighten the tension bolt. 4. Align InstaTrike wheels.<br><br> (initial installation only. Check periodically and realign if necessary) 5. Bolt leanstop braces to hitch.<br><br> Be certain to replace washers/spacers in the same configuration as when you removed them. 6.

Leanstop Braces When installing InstaTrike, bolt leanstop brace to receiver hitch by inserting bolt from bottom through the leanstop brace and washers/spacers.<br><br> Thread bolt into bracket on hitch and tighten. When removing InstaTrike reverse the above procedure. Adding or removing washers/spacers between receiver hitch and leanstop brace will allow you to level your motorcycle if necessary.<br><br> Leanstop brace is slotted to allow for proper alignment with bolt holes Wheel Height / Traction Adjuster The wheel height/traction adjuster (right and left side) allows you to selectively adjust the position of your trike wheels in order to customize ride, handling, level, and traction characteristics. Your trike is shipped with the adjuster preset to an optimum position for your model of motorcycle however you can make whatever adjustments necessary to customize to your bike and personal preference. Shortening the adjuster arm raises the trike wheels and places more of the weight of your motorcycle on the motorcycle wheel.<br><br> This increases motorcycle traction and gives a generally softer ride. 1) Loosen jam nuts 2) Shorten adjuster arm by turning adjuster nut A toward bolt C desired amount. 3) Turn adjuster nut B until it tightens against adjuster bracket and adjuster nut A 4) Tighten nuts A and B and jam nuts Lengthening the adjuster arm lowers the trike wheels and places more of the weight of your motorcycle on the trike wheels.<br><br> This gives a firmer ride and increases handling/cornering. 1) Loosen jam nuts 2) Lengthen adjuster arm by turning adjuster nut B toward bolt D desired amount. 3) Turn adjuster nut A until it tightens against adjuster bracket and adjuster nut B 4) Tighten nuts A and B and jam nuts If necessary the pivot bolt and bolts C and D and be loosened for adjustment Be certain to retighten all bolts after adjustment.<br><br> NOTICE: Check all bolts and nuts periodically for tightness NOTICE: Be sure motorcycle is level after adjustment. Wheel Alignment Wheel alignment is critical for proper tire wear and handling. With InstaTrike installed and motorcycle on center stand, measure A and B .<br><br> Loosen axle plates and align wheel so A and B are equal to within 1/16 th of an inch. Tighten axle bolts and torque to 45 pounds. Repeat for C and D .<br><br> NOTE : The measurement of A and B may not be the same as C and D. This is normal and presents no difficulty. <br><br>
