    Best method of removing the rear suspension legs.

    I need to remove both rear suspension legs on my trike,

    Any tips from anybody how has done this....after I have removed them I need to be able to fold the trike as its to tall to fit in my garage,

    I can suspend the trike from a beam in my garden during the strip down.

    Nick,

    Are you able to do it the other way round? I couldn't get my blade in through the garage door, but I could do it with the Trike partially folded. I was able to fold the trike, wheel it into the garage, then stand it up normally. I would expect it to be easier to get the trike into the garage, then remove the legs by supporting the trike on a box if you really need to?

    Regards

    Steve

    Hi Steve...my garage roof is quite low...now if I could remove the legs with the frame folded that would be another matter???

    I suppose with the legs off it wants to fall over.

    I shortened the rear legs on a quikR with an angle grinder and made it fit in a trailer a couple of weeks ago,

    Mind you, It was being made into the new simulator at the time Nick.

    Best method of removing the rear suspension legs.

    All sorted now thanks guys....came off easier than I thought...needed a second pair of hands to keep the monopole upright and the rear keel on a trolly and milk crate to be able to move it about,

    Made up a spring compressor to get the legs apart...all checked and back together...thank for your advice guys and to Roger Patrick at P+M,

    Easy when you see it all in bits and how everything fits.
