Triglide rear lift

No one on this forum talking about the lift kits for the Triglide. Dennis Swan in Indiana is selling a nice kit to lift the rear of the Triglide. Sure stops exhaust dragging and looks better also. Makes the trike sit level with no change in handling. He has a web site Tglide or something like that, I sure like mine check it out Would post an image but can't on this forum I guess, maybe thats the reason no trafic here.

The one on the right looks much better.
The comparison of the two makes the one on the left look like a 'Tail dragger'.
Someone was smart to come up with the idea.

I did a little digging and found the website for the kit.

I have just done a Platinum Air suspension on 2010 TriGlide and it helps alot with the dragging challenge

Re: Triglide rear lift

I installed the rear lift [2011 Tri] and it realy makes a difference.
Takes about 45 minutes to do.. For some reason it lighten steering effort which is good, and levels the trike which is even better. No more tail dragging.

Re: Triglide rear lift

This thread needs more pictures! Although I don't own a trike, I'm interested in seeing the modifications.

Some pictures of mine. Brackets were being test fitted and were painted blue.
Rails for tour box fit between mounting brackets above trunk and bottom of tour box.

Re: Triglide rear lift

Very nice! Did the mods help with handling? The rails for the tourpak were need needed to level it when you installed the brackets, is that correct?
