SOURCE: shocks

The Road King shocks are air adjustable via an air valve located on the right side of the bike just above the rear tire. Your Harley Davidson owner's manual will tell you what the shocks should be pressurized to depending upon the load on your bike (for instance - if you'll be carrying a passenger - the pressure should be a bit higher than it would be if you were riding solo). Don't even attempt to read the pressure unless you have the specialized hand pump that is used to pressurize the shocks. You can purchase this from Harley Davidson or via a third party online. The valve is a typical bicycle / auto air valve - but ... DO NOT attempt to pressurize it with anything but the specialized hand pump. Using anything else will risk over pressurization of your shocks and that's not good. The shocks hold a very small volume of air at relatively low pressure levels - so the hand pump is a must have.

SOURCE: air in rear shocks

Depending on your weight and if you carry a passenger as to the air pressure. I normally run about 14 but 24 if riding 2 up.
Recommended pressures:
up to 150 lbs- 0
each addition 25 rider pounds > 150 lbs add 1.0 lbs
each additional passenger pounds > 150 lbs add 1.5 lbs
each additional 10 lbs of laggage add 3.0 lbs
Max Pressure 35 psi

SOURCE: yz125 rear shock amount of oil on

The volume is less than about 1/2 quart - it's usually not measured going in since you fill the shock completely - there's no need to measure. Some guys assemble the entire shock, then fill with oil and cycle the shaft, then install the bladder cap last. My method is to install the shaft and seal head and the bladder, then put about 2 PSI in the bladder, then bleed through the compression cap. My method is a bit more complicated to explain, but it's effective at eliminating ALL the air from the oil and it keeps the bladder from being installed in a collapsed state.

As far as the nitrogen charge - 145PSI is stock. 130-160PSI is typical.

SOURCE: how do I adjust rear shocks on my 2000 Road King?

Hi Patti, Road Kings have air shocks at the rear. You will need a FL touring hand pump and adjust the air pressure accordingly to your weight/load.

Adjusting rear shocks to lower my 1999 road king


Sorry I do not go back that far so if the shocks are not air shocks you can likely adjust them by turning the spring to a higher or lower setting and if air shock you need a special shock air pump to raise ort lower the air pressure. Use of a regular pump will not be accurate and an air supply more than 50 psi will likely destroy the shocks in any case.

How do I find a leak in my rear shocks on a road king?


Unless the shock body is cracked, the only place it can leak is at the air inlet at the top of the shock. We've replaced a lot of these at the shop I work at.

25 psi would be the maximum on the stock shocks for your road king. I usually myself run about 17 psi in the rear shocks with a passenger.

Install rear shocks


With motorcycle raised so tire is just touching the supporting surface apply two or three drops of LOCTITE MEDIUM STRENGTH THREADLOCKER 243 (blue) to the threads of each mounting bolt then install the lower shock mounting bolt, lockwasher and flat
washer and tighten to 35-40 ft-lbs (47.5-54.2 Nm) and then install the upper shock mounting bolt, lockwasher and flat
washer and tighten to 35-40 ft-lbs (47.5-54.2 Nm). THEN insert the air tube into the air tube fitting until it bottoms, gently tug on the tube to verify that it is locked in place and then with a special no pressure loss pump available from H-D properly pressurize the rear air suspension system and check for leaks.
