IT IS QUICK CONNECT FITTINGS, JUST PRESS DOWN THE PLASTICRING AROUND THE FITTING AND PULL OUT THE HOSE. WHEN YOU REFILL THE AIR DONT USE THE THE PUMP THAT YOU USE TO THE TIRES, USE THE PUMP THAT IS MENT FOR SHOCK FILLING OTHERWISE YOU WILL BLOW THE SHOCK

SOURCE: My 2003 Harley Ultra rear shocks hve no spring

Your ultra has rear air shocks. on the right side of the bike in the area of the fender is an air valve to install air. Do not add anymore then 25 lbs. a hand pump is safer an air compressor or gas station can have so much pressure it will blow the seals before you take the nozzel off. You will have to remove your hard bag to see the air input. Looks like a tire air nozzel should have a silver color cap on it.

SOURCE: TPMS Light

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) gets signals from transponders in the wheels. By modifying the unit from its stock form (removing the stock rear wheel), the TPMS is not receiving a signal and will cause the warning light to illuminate. Unfortunately there is no way to fix this without returning the bike to stock. The light will not cause any damage, but the system will not be able to alert you of low pressure in the front wheel.

SOURCE: rear brakes don't work on 1996 goldwing

Yes the rear pedal operates the front RH disk as well.
When you bleed the brake do the front RH disk calliper first then the rear calliper.
Check that the pads are not beyond useful life and the not stuck.

What are the most probl;ems installing a Voyager trike kit to a 2006 Ultr a Classic H(D everything seems to be fine before an install?


Hello,

Commonly problems with installing ANY Voyager kit come with incorrectly aligning the kit on the initial tightening of the belly bracket and on incorrectly preloading the kit. Be a perfectionist on these parts specifically. Then check to make sure all of your bolts are tight and that your Voyager tires are at 20 psi. Your motorcycle tires stay at the recommended air pressure.

Installing on a 2006 Dresser is one of the easier installation. If you have any problems, you can contact the manufacturer at (815) 434-7900. They're always willing to help when available.

I inbstalled a trike kit on my ultra classic and the steering is terrible. I have been told I have bump steering. How do I resolve this. Bill


Who made the kit? Is it a true trike kit or one of these kits that leaves the original swingarm and rear wheel on and simply adds two more wheels to the rear. Either way, I'd contact the manufacturer of the kit and see what they had to say. It sounds like the rake on the front end has changed or the center of gravity has changed.

Good Luck
Steve

Everytime I hit a bump the rear end slams into the frame. New shocks and a check of the springs show no problems. GM dealership said no problems,...but the there is a problem...the darn thing is bottoming...


If this vehicle is equipped with rear struts....not shock absorbers...which most vehicles are equipped with today the sound you are speaking of seems to indicate worn strut plates and bushings... most repair facilities over look these items when replacing the strut housings and thus customer gets this noise even louder now that the struts are new and the plates and bushings are old not able to absorb the shock the vehicles suspension incurrs whuile riding over a bumpy terrain.

Hi, I have opel corsa 1.4. Recently i faced a problem that if if there is at least three person (including driver) then during running a tortling noise comming from the right side of the back whenevr it...


the best way to find out what it is would be to have the 3 people in the car while gently pushing down on the car simulating a pot hole or bump and inspecting how the exhaust & shocks in that area where you hear the noise, are fitting. It sounds as if when the weight of the extra passengers is in the vehicle, probably your exhaust pipe/muffler/tailpipe is now closer than usual to another body part & when you hit bumps or pot holes, the extra force caused makes it bump or rub.

Generaly there should always be 1" of exhaust clearance from other parts. There could also be a problem with the shock/strut when the extra weight is placed on it. The noise should actually point you in the best direction & you should look for shiny spots on metal, pipes or things that appear to be capable of rubbing. Sometimes, the muffler /exhaust will lose one or more of the rubber O-rings it is supported by and that allows it to swing & bump making noise. Good luck.

When i am driving over a rough terrain or i hit a bump the back end sways and swerves even when i slow down prior to hitting a bump or going over a bumpy road what causes this problem


Could be your shocks are no good and need replaced or if you have rear springs check to make sure there are no broken leaves in the springs.

My 1997 buick lesabre back suspension is bottoming out on the back


it should be air adjustable, if the pump is working, most of the time the shocks leak. have a shop ck out the rear shocks, if they leak, then verify that the pump is operational. Monroe offers replacements.

I have a 1993 honda goldwing i turn it in to a trike and now when i hit a hard bump it dies i have to turn the key off to reset it and start up


I'm not a Gold Wing owner, but from your brief description it sounds like an electrical problem.When it "dies" do the lights etc. die too, or is it just the engine that dies? Look for loose wiring especially around ignition switch and battery. This is a good place to begin.
