Is it worth replacing them (does air suspension work)? From my experience no they don't really add much - you're better off performing a taper-roller steering head bearing conversion - this improves the handling much more. For details pester JFerg, as he made up a detailed recipe a few years ago. When deleting the rubber air-bags, you will need to keep the rim, as it acts as a spacer. But the stock dampers aren't that good - you'd be better off spending a bit of money and replacing them with BiTubo dampers. ,,,

Ktm 250 sx

the SX forks really should be taken to a suspension tech to get the inner chamber properly bleed out.
You never just add a cc amount because there is usually some left inside. You bleed out the air and fill. once no more air is coming out you set the fluid level on the outter chamber 110mm to 120mm with the spring out and the fork collapsed.

Ive got a gl1100 1982 with air front suspension q-what is the best way to change the front fork to a convensional spring fork and what forks would be the best ?

Hello and thanks for the question,
Your 1982 GL1100 has air assist type of suspension. It has springs in the front as well as the air pressure. This is a heavy bike and the front forks are marginal at best. I have had great results from installing progressive suspension springs and moving up to a heavier fork oil (20wt ) to keep the bike from diving so far during braking.

You should look at having the forks rebuilt with these parts and you will find that the bike handles much better than before.
The springs that are in the bike are old now and should be updated with new style parts.

Thanks and I hope that this helps.

Air ride suspension and guage in fairing that reads AIR but around 120. Tried to put air in my front and rear shocks and the valves would not allow air from the chuck. These use air don't they?

Yes, but it takes a special pump to put the air in the shocks. They aren't expensive and are available at your local Harley shop. They'll tell you how much air pressure to run in the front suspension and rear shocks as well.

Good Luck

Two valves for suspension one for rear won't take air lines look OK where to start looking also valve for front has oil in it help manual doesn't touch on air suspension much 2000 road king classic

Hi Rlloyd845, try pumping air into the rear suspension and spraying windex on all the connections to see where the leak is then repair as necessary by cutting off the very end of line to make for new seat. Good luck and have nice day.

Soft front suspension how can i stiffen the front suspension

If it has air caps on the top of the forks, you can put a little air in them. If not, the other thing you can do is add a bit more oil to each fork leg.

Whats the procedure for changeing air filters in a yamaha royal star tour deluxe 2005

This procedure must be performed on both sides - you'll find the air filter cases mounted high, immediately behind the cowlings. Yamaha specifies removing the cowlings, but I just remove the top screw in the front of the cowling and bend it forward slightly to get to screws and bolts.

The air cleaner cases are mounted by hex-head screws top and bottom; loosen them, then look for a large rubber hose from the case to a duct beside the case. The case is held by a flexible clamp with a phillips-head screw adjustment - loosen the screw and the case can be removed.

Turn the case so that the rubber hose is facing up; there are five screws holding the case halves together. Remove them to split the case. The filter is secured to the side of the case that the rubber hose joins, loosen the two screws in the front (forward-facing) of the filter and remove.

Secure new filter with the screws that held the old one, rejoin the case halves, put the case behind the cowling, secure the rubber hose to the duct, screw top and bottom bolts through the case to their mounts, tighten cowling mounts.

Repeat on the other side and you're done!

1996 royal star, left rear valve seems to be sticking or something, getting rough idle with lots of backfire popping from that pipe, and motor is missing badly during takeoff and downshift idling. anybody...

The The Air Injection System AIS for that cylinder could be leaking (chrome pipe running up to a fitting right by the exhaust pipe) or more likely the rubber pipe that goes from the engine intake to carburetor is either loose at the engine or carburetor, or the rubber pipe is cracked, split or broken. This would cause air to be sucked into the crack, split or loose fitting during during acceleration or downshifting.
