Hannigan Trike Issues

I'm seriously considering a Hannigan trike conversion for my K1200LT. I've noticed several commits about the rear-end bottoming out, and front end bottoming out if the "Steer-Lite" option had been added. Are these issues something I need to be concerned about, or are they isolated incidences?

Re: Hannigan Trike Issues

I have no problem w/ rear end in 60,000 miles.
Front shock on my LT bottomed out before conversion.
Replaced it and all has been well, 50,000 miles.

I've had no issues. Just watch out for those large chuck holes.

No issues with mine. Have scrapped the running boards on a speed bump, guess that means I was going to fast!
