NONE.
Unless you have some handling complaints.
The original Kenda tires were worse than almost anything else you could put on.
The jury is still out on the new tire design.

Keeping the front tires inflated to within .5 PSI of each others is good.
If you feel that it tends to wander all over the road, a laser alignment might help.

Does the other type shocks help any on the Rt are the Rt shocks good enough.
Still plan on a belt tensioner and maybe belt guard
Wasn't sure about the more expensive shocks make handling better bike handles great
Just getting use to 3 wheels instead of 2

Well you can waste your money however you please.

But why in the world would you be trying to "fix" problems that you don't even HAVE ??

For most people, different shocks are absolutely unnecessary.
And if you don't notice a vibration between 55 and 75 MPH, then you don't need a belt tensioner either.
IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T "FIX" IT !!

The belt guard probably is a good idea.
I don't ride around a lot of loose rocks.......but my belt still got a rock punched through it.
I don't know if the guard would have prevented that or not. I still don't have one.

I got to test drive a 2020 Limited and I have to say that I could not feel anything that needed replacing. The sway bar is probable all I would do.

When you replaced the sway bay did you change the links, if not the metal links make the best of the new sway bar.

My wife busted a sidewall on one of the Arachnid tires, after reading about these on another forum, we bought Federal Formoza from Amazon, I paid $91 for two tires. She told me that "everything is better", it handles better, corners better, smoother ride, no shimmies anymore, just simply awesome. She has a 2014 RTS
