I picked up a bad shudder or vibe in my bars at speed. I said to myself. Self. And self said huh. Do you think that the extension I did to my lowers is causing it. Self said. Maybe. So I removed the extention and it went away. Self told me he thought there was to much unsupported area. Causing it to Vibe. Live and learn

That's interesting to know Tex   There must be big differences to the way a trike rides compared to a C50 bike? That would make a big difference to the air flow, Looking at pics of your trike, It seems the rear is slightly higher? this would make the forks slightly more upright? and possibly the reason behind the steering damper being fitted, Just out of interest? what size wheels and tyres are on the rear?

Thanks Tex, Those tyre sizes would give a larger rolling radius on the rear by 21mm ,nearly an inch higher at the rear, that's not a lot over a nearly nine foot bike? I wonder if the trike is made higher in the conversion itself somehow

The Suzuki gel seat sits 1 inch lower I think. I only removed the lower added part to the lower. I think there was just to much unsupported area below and it was buffeting. Ok after I removed it. Got a 400 mile ride with my son in law and daughter and a group of riders tomorrow. I will see how it does.
