Frequently Asked Questions

Can I order a trike kit and install myself? We require all of our Authorized Dealers to be trained here at our facility in Troup, TX. We want to ensure that all of our kits are installed properly for many reasons. Therefore, we do not allow individuals to purchase conversion kits. All trike kits must be purchased through an Authorized Dealer.

Can I get a copy of the installation instructions for my kit? These are a dealer-only item that are not available for the general public.
What is the warranty on a Motor Trike kit? The warranty period for our kits is 3 years or 60,000 miles (normal wear items are not covered under the Motor Trike warranty).
What is the recommended air pressure for the air springs? The amount of air needed varies by kit; you should reference your owner's manual or preventative maintenance sheet for the corresponding information.
Where is the rear end number located on my trike? On solid axle shaft driven bikes, the rear end number is stamped into the TOP side of the pinion snout (above the driveshaft attachment point). On solid axle belt drive bikes, it is on the back side of the main carrier housing. Honda IRS the number is stamped into the differential support just below the rear cover. Belt driven IRS kits, the number is stamped into a plate that is attached to the center of the aluminum carrier. (This number is required for any repairs done and replacement parts.)
Does the Motor Trike trailer hitch come with wiring harness for the motorcycle? No, the wiring harness for the motorcycle is a separate item. Many bikes being converted already have a harness on their unit which is why this is a separate item.
How does steering with a Motor Trike rake kit compare to competiting systems? Our rake kit is designed to minimize the steering effort by replacing the steering stem with a canted axis steering stem. The new raked steering stem is constructed of billet aircraft grade aluminum. Motor Trike’s patent pending design retains the use of the most critical Honda components including the cast lower fork. This utilizes the reliability and maintain the appearance of the stock components. The rake kit is nearly invisible once installed, and is optimized to provide the best trike steering geometry possible learned over 25 years of experience. The result of Honda’s innovative front suspension combined with Motor Trike’s revolutionary rake kit is the best trike front suspension in the world.
Will our rake kit work with ABS and airbag models? Yes.
Does the Motor Trike Honda kit work with ABS and airbag model bikes? Yes, our kit is designed to work with these features (ABS package requires additional parts purchase).
Can I get different wheels other than the ones shown in the brochure? Yes, we offer a line of "custom" wheels we can order as well for an additional cost. Please contact your local dealer for a listing of the wheels we offer.
Are the Aqua shields and Trog Trax load bearing? Yes, we include steel framework so they will support the weight as you get on and off of your trike.
What is the bolt pattern on the wheels? We use a 5 on 4 1/2" bolt pattern on our conversions.
Who do I contact if I have an issue with my trike? You should contact your installing dealer with your concern or repair needs.
If my trike is out of warranty how do I get parts for my unit? You can contact your local Motor Trike dealer for replacement part information, or you can contact Motor Trike for part information and pricing.
Can I get a different gear ratio on my trike kit from the factory? No, we design each kit with a specific gear ratio to maximize performance, economy, and rideability.
Does the Motor Trike kit affect my speedometer? We design each kit with a specific gear ratio. In the event we alter the gear ratio from the OEM, we provide a speedometer calibration unit to correct the speedometer (SH750 and VTX1300).
Does Motor Trike offer a parking brake for the trike? Yes, we do offer a parking brake option with our trike kits. The cost of this will vary by each specific kit.
Can I purchase a trike or have my conversion done directly from the factory? No, any sale or installation must go through our dealer network. We have dealers who have their conversions done at our factory however, so this may be an option to a "factory direct" installation.
Is my trike body painted by Motor Trike, or the installing dealer? We offer our kits both ways. We offer paint from the factory as well as a gel coat option that allows our dealers to keep an on hand inventory and paint the kit at the time of sale.
Does a trike conversion void my motorcycle warranty? Yes, any modification to the frame of a motorcycle voids the manufacturer warranty. However, many dealerships are trike friendly and will continue to honor the factory warranty as long as they deem the need for repair was not caused by the addition of a trike kit.
Does Motor Trike change the exhaust system on their conversions? There are some makes and models of bikes that requires us to change the exhaust system to accommodate our conversions. This cost is not included in the kit price as some customers already have an aftermarket system we can utilize as well as dealers that opt to purchase exhaust systems through their sources as well.
