Default steering damper/stabilizer

I was going to add a steering damper to my wife's1200 triketo help with a low speed wobble. I have found a used one but he has lost the instructions. Does anyone who has installed one have the instructions that they can email or copy for me? Thanks

I would think the instructions might be dependent on the manufacturer of the stabilizer. Is this a HD product?

Harley doesn't make one, this is a aftermarket. I emailed the company that it was bought from but the have never responded.

Please try to resolve her issue by normal means first.A dampner is a good thing put like pain pills it can mask a serious underlying cause.

It probably involves needing more rake.A true trike expert can tell you for sure.

I think your right. I am going to put on a new tire, check the neck bearings and then go from there.

low speed wobbles are almost always tire-balance.

Sounds like you may need some raked trees instead of a stabilizer, that's how they fix that problem on the big bikes.
