  • What went wrong

    Today I took off my stock bars and put on my 14" apes, everything went well but now I have to put the bike in neutral to start it. before as long as I had the clutch pulled in I could start it. What did I screw up. 2006 Roadstar 1700 trike.

    Did you cut/extend electrical connectors from controls to Headlight bucket? Did you have to open the controls for anything if you did not extend wiring?

      No the only thing I had to do is put on a longer front brake line. Everything else was off the old bars and put back on the new bars. ?

                  If my kickstand is down it won't start with the clutch pulled in while in gear, if I put the kickstand up it will start with the clutch pulled in while in gear.

                      It happens. We all do it. Ain't life wonderful? Lot's of great folks here to help out with the occasional brain fart.

                      Always great when it's something simple and doesn't cost anything. Besides, we've all done something like that. You can laugh about it later.

                      Always have mine in neutral when starting and while sitting still. Just a habit I got into when I started riding at age 10.

                        Lesson # 1 you never leave a trike in neutral and walk away, It has no parking brake so the bike may be gone 99% of the time when you get back.

                          Exactly what I do. Mine is always in gear when parked but starting it’s in neutral.
