Modifications and Appearance / Re: Lower link or not
« Last post by LarryJa on Today at 05:27:01 am »
I'm 70, 5'9-10" & 175lbs.
Early last summer I had a couple of Trophy low speed tip overs that really frustrated me.
I put 8mm lust lowering links  on to drop the rear a bit & raised the fork tubes in their clamps 13mm
Those changes improved the low speed control for me enormously. Obviously, they also aided my footing while stopped.
The other thing that I did was sectioned about an inch & a quarter out of the centerstand height, & had it rewelded together. Now, a 10yr old could put this weighty bike up on the centerstand.
I found no downside to lowering the bike.
I'll also state that when I put a lower Corbin seat on a larger touring bike that I had, it effected high speed cornering because it lowered me relative to the bike's C of G. That meant that I had to put more effort into wrestling the bike through fast corners. That actually added to a back strain that I still have trouble with occasionally.
So, I'm not an advocate of low seats on heavy bikes, for me.
Just my $0.02.

magnavra,  :400: A good looking Trophy you've got yourself there. Might be a bit hard to find a topbox. Accessories are getting pretty thin on the ground. Enjoy "farkling" your "new" toy. Cheers.  :821: :028:

Hey Guys,




I just acquired a new-to-me 2015 TTSE. I first test rode a Trophy I'm 2015 at a dealer, but ended up with a Honda CTX1300. Since then I've also had a 19' K1600GTL and a 05' R1150RT. I also have an Indian Challenger. I guess I suffer from some kind of disorder…  :745:

The other day I was browsing around Craigslist and saw this baby.  :169: She has 4300 miles and is in super condition. Included were a set of panniers and liner bags. It didn't come with a top box, which I would like to acquire.

I guess I am late to the party, but glad to have finally arrived!  :046:

29" inseam here...

Do you have the factory low seat in the low position??  Helps a lot.

I had my seat further lowered and flattened by Spencer at greatdaytoride dot com.. not sure if he's still in business.

Installed Lust lowering links and dropped the forks 12mm.  Cut down my aftermarket screen so I can see over the top.   Golden...

Trophy crash bars and racks by Tralex / Re: Crash Bars by Tralex

In case anyone can use my experience with R & G bars and bars made by Tralex.

With the R & G bars, I had several falls with the bike stopped and every time I saw the bike lying on the ground, the bars would bend.

With Tralex bars. The other day I stopped when entering the house, since there is some unevenness in the ground, and the motorcycle fell to the ground. Absolutely. The bars, nothing has been bent, just a small scratch from nothing that is barely visible.

Seems like a very sensible thinning of the herd. Something I will need to do over the next 12 months…  :015:

LOL

Your Dana will put your motorcycles and travel bags at your front door. In addition, she will change the lock on the house.

There are several ways to lower the motorcycle.

- Crank arms to lower the suspensions
- OEM seat low position
- Pilot seat, low
- Low pilot seat, plus take out some padding
- Tilt something with a half moon washer, the support where the pilot's seat is anchored
