Trike conversion and weak clutch issues
Lately there has been some forum discussion of clutch issues, i.e. weak, worn or contaminated assemblies and the ensuing clutch related repairs. I've decided, (95% sure anyway), to trike my '06 KLT soon with a Hannigan conversion. My question is if anyone, that has a LT trike conversion, had a clutch problem from wear due to the additional weight? The final drive seems to be first on the list as the weakest link on a great motorcycle, but since I'll be eliminating that possible issue, the second weakest may be the clutch. Any thoughts?
