"CHANGE TRANS OIL BEFORE RIDING" yeah, great advice...if after what many described as a tough job to find fill and drain plugs. and I agree, That top "Fill" plug is a beach to get undone. then tightened back up. But what I cannot believe is there is no "oil level" plug.. to know, quarter the way up dribbles when you are full, or so. Yeah .75L. anything to make a simple job a little harder.
My "Lovely" magnum is now rejecting reverse, and beginning to reject forward. Put it in reverse and it loudly objects...so I don't do reverse.(Major reason for buying this model). Now putting it in forward...it thinks about it vocally. I am disabled, so breaking down is not an option. And NOBODY I know wants to ride with me and my anemic three wheeler, tops out at 60mph. very sad. and looks silly.
So dependability is priceless. It will not be ridden as much as I love to ride. and if it has it's way....won't be ridden at all. batteries die. 1000miles and the rear tires are worn out? had to change out the jug and cylinder, because antifreeze leaked past the rings and watermarked the cylinder. And this was allegedly assembled Professionally. bought used for $2500 w/ 300 miles on the clock. and hows that work? dead battery and the only thing it remembers is mileage. I believe it was clocked. but what do I know? I only been wrenching and riding for 40 yrs. I know less about people. LOL.
I can answer most questions on this trike, but once in a while... it is a great ride for the money. and , even if you spend twice as much, that's no guarantee of "No Problems". just twice the price.
