  • Adding a trike kit.

    I am looking into adding a voyager trike kit. I am wondering if anyone here has done so on a roadstar 1700 and if so did you have to rake the front end. If you had to do the rake how much(degrees) and where did u get the tree

      A voyager is not a real trike kit. It adds 2 wheels to the orginal two wheels. Power still comes from your stock rear wheel. If your drive wheel goes over a hole, you get stuck like a kid with training wheels. It will be very hard to turn unless you rake the front, but becomes unrideable as a two wheeler if you do. Handling is unpredictable, it can not corner fast, not at all like a traditional trike.
      It's supposeded to be the best of both worlds, but ends up the worst of both. If you can do it yourself, you can get a real trike for the same money. Check out triketalk.com if you are thinking about a trike.

        If you really want a Voyager kit, look to Craigslist, ebay and other used m/c parts outlets. I have found them several times on C/L at a fraction of what one costs new. There's a reason for that. You may be better off never finding out what that reason is.

            This is my Voyager Kit and I love mine. Take the time to get use to it and practice once you have it. I did not add a tree with a rake in it cause I use mine to tow my Mini Mate Camper trailer. There will be people who will put you down but I don't care I'm happy with it. I did not add a rake because it changes the bike dynamic if you decide to take the kit off to ride 2 wheels. I needed the ability to be able to remove the kit and ride 2 wheels if I want to.
