Lehman Trike Axle Service

  Lehman trike axles are pretty straight forward. From time to time you should grease the differential and stick your head under there and just check things out well. It is also advisable to check the axle bearings when servicing your trike. It’s as simple as grabbing the wheel and checking to see it spins […]

Break-In and General Maintence

The object of breaking in a new engine is to keep damaging friction heat to a minimum.

DTC 1353 and 1356 Harley Twincam

Diagnostic Trouble Codes P1353 and P1356 Front (1353) and Rear (1356) Cylinder No Combustion This is usually a self explanatory code when a cylinder isn’t firing. It’s either mechanical or electrical. If it has compression, then it’s electrical. Sometimes these codes are set and the bike will run fine. The problem is most likely in […]
