Location: Spanaway, Wa.
I have a 2003 Goldwing with Champion Escort sidecar. The front end has the easy steer extension, car tire on rear. It runs and steers great. How ever, because of the easy steer the front end is lower than it should be. I would like to raise it back to the stock height. Can this be be done by inserting tube spacers at the top of the forks, or do I need to acquire new, longer fork tubes?
Sometimes I find myself on logging roads and the little extra clearance would be helpful.

Most "ez steer" type triple tree's come with spacers that thread into the top of your forks, perhaps these were not installed on your bike?
We do not have any GL1800's in the shop right now that we have done this to for you to be able to come by and look. We do have a GL1800 in the shop that early next year we will be changing the triple tree's.

Help from anyone knowledgeable about the front end on Goldwing... I have a 1500 with hannigan set up that I bought used. it has a modified triple tree but I have no way of knowing what springs are there. I am having trouble with the front wheel hitting hard on rough roads to the extent it has broken both rotor covers at the bolts where they bolt on and the front part of the fender at the forks... is it possible the springs that are there are wore out and replacing them would help the problem?
