I have a 2007 harley ultra classic with a tle sidecar. In the service and installation manuals they both say to pump the shocks up to 35 psig which is the max pressure for these shocks. The rear end still sags to 2.5 of its 4 inch travel. This reduces the effectiveness of my 5 degree triple trees. So my question is - has anyone tried progressive 416 trike shocks ( flhtcutg) or other harley trike shocks on their sidecar rig? Else, what pressure have you tried? ( I'm a big lad) . Ideas please.

I have and have had several Harleys with Harley sidecars. I have never had this problem. I wonder if there is something wrong with the shocks. I would sure think new or heavy shocks should fix it. That being said I have never changed my triple trees. So I cant say how that effects things.

Go to progressive shocks. Tell them your problem. The trikes are a different animal than a solo.

I like use the '09-up factory touring shocks, and run them at about 50 psi. You can get new take-offs for a reasonable price.
