Try flipping your rockers over, you will need to switch them from right to left.

update

I took for a ride it rides like shit not enoght trail feels like it wants to fall over and I talked to jeri and he said that DNA has over 50 law suites. So no brainer get a differnt springer. I am not going there any one what to buy a dna springer 4under. I'am sure some of the problem is how they installed it most of the deal is I think is the front fender being put on to close to the tire and hitting a bump in the road and the tire hits the fender not good

the front tire should never hit the fender as it is mounted to the front leg of the springer and will move with the wheel.
That said I guess the saying you get what you pay for comes to mind in regards to the overall performance.

thats one bad ass sporty however, good job.

Iv had several DNA springers and had one on my Daily Sweetness for 5yrs...

Then I switched to a Monster leading link with true shock absorbers.. not spring against spring.. That make a MAJOR difference in comfort and ease of drivability..

Trikes like a lot of rake but like low trail numbers.. I set mine up at 45` and 4" trail.. No flop and firm and easy steering.

What kind of trail numbers are you trying to get with your two wheeler?

Thats a great looking bike,,, all lady like and all....

I was just thinking that Iv never put one of my Monster leading links on a two wheeler...

I know the geometry will work as the trail is adjustable with longer or shorter rockers... which are just 2x5/8" flat bar.

The downtubes are 91/2" center to center just like a big Harley and they weigh about 50lbs...

they might be too heavy for a two wheeler.... hummmmmmm

I dont know if Ill be going to Webster,, but if the Harley trike Im working on, is OK, the owner will be there and Plant City with it... Its for sale.

let me say this.. whatever your springer issues are you'll get em' straightened out.. with custom modifications also comes custom fabrication needs .. so dont beat yerself up over that dna fitment .. next.. you used a stock bike & added THE PERFECT LOOK .. i am really impressed with what you did.. everything blends very nicely.. i would round the side corners of that rear fender off in a serious manner .. otherwise , if thats all a hard core critic like myself can find , you have completed an extremely nice project.. it appears you had a plan goal & you went after it with a no holds barred passion .. & THAT ... IS .. WHAT IT TAKES .. beautiful fuckin' job .. the missus should be proud to ride that bike anywhere.. dont be surprised if that look aint borrowed from you as more folks see it.. it is a very desirable look.. my compliments to you ...

I saw your thread here and I'm just about to install a -2" DNA on my 08 Nightster. What about the ride did you not like? Do you think -2 over -4 will help with the trail issue? I was going to use your pics as a guide to grind down the lower support. Any advice is appreciated.

there are many springer makers that use that dna type pattern.. theres no issue with the frt. end.. only the application its used in.. nothin' works right on every bike.. its just that simple.. usually different rockers cure most issues.. jerri's wont be any better or worse, except for the cost.. its the rocker design that changes it all..
