Re: April's Triking Pilots Challenge

Only had to drive 100 yards for this one - it's the name of my street.

Re: April's Triking Pilots Challenge

Since you're the organizer of the Challenge, I guess we'll have to let you get away with that :P

Re: wiper motor

I think the main thing is to get the axis of the motor drive pointing in the same direction as the axes of the holes in the fiberglass for the wiper blade "spindles", which is pretty much guaranteed because the angle of the wiper support tab is designed to make this happen . I don't think the clock ...

Re: Rear bumper

Hi, Ivan - I guess Wisconsin is a little tougher than Oregon - all the lady from the DMV checked on my Triking was how many wheels it had, the VIN number, and whether or not it had 3 point seat belts - I don't think Oregon has Type 1 or Type 2 motorcycle classifications. I guess you just have to con...

Re: Insurance

Hi, Tony - It's probably too late, and may not matter anyway, but I believe all Trikings have a VIN number embossed on the side of the left front frame member, in front of the wheel - hard to see, but if you get the light at the right angle you'll find it and be able to read it - it's about 17 numbe...

Re: Reverse box bushings

Don't know whether the tunnel is the same size on the Type 4 as on my Type 2, which has less than 1/8" clearance between the reverse gearbox and the RHS of the tunnel, which causes loud thrumming noises on RH turns without a passenger, presumably due to torque on the gearbox bushings and/or flexing ...
