I have had several Hannigan rigs but not on an LT. Mine were on GL1500's. Similar pulling power to the LT. You will have plenty of get up and go. Make sure you have the Electric Lean option. Very usefull.

Hi Swamprat , the LT handles a Hannigan pretty good . You can take it off or on in 30min. or so . You can add a few Hannigan parts ( steer light and heave front spring) it will handel real good . The down side is once the change the front end , you can't ride it as a two wheeler anymore ...Patric ...
