Re: Hannigan trike conversion and higher rpm
By design the ABS generates the speedo signal so they must have the rear ABS sensor set up on the rear wheel(s)? Just checked the manual for the trike kit and they use a reluctor ring at the input to the rear end and mount the existing ABS sensor to it for Speedo signal as it would not provide true ABS operation. One rear wheel could lock up and the drive shaft would still be turning. The reluctor ring is designed to provide the correct speedo signal for the smaller rear wheels.
Also due to the extra weight I am sure they set up a lower rear drive ratio to allow you to start rolling easier. That would yield a higher RPM for a given speed.
