How do i remove rear fender on night rod special

To remove a 2011 VRSCDX rear fender FIRST remove the main fuse under the right side cover first, then remove the tail light open the seat, remove the seat pillion, remove the fasteners and the passenger pillion, remove the electrical caddy and the six fasteners and the washers from the fender, remove the fender from the inner fender by lifting upward and sliding the fender back, remove the inner fender by removing the rear shocks and fasteners.

And tighten them to 20-26 Nm (15-19 ft-lbs), install the main fuse, install the right side cover and ensure that the headlamp, tail lights and stop lamp and turn signals are operating properly.

2006 Touring shocks =

Table 2-6. Rear Air Suspension Pressures

Shock Loading Recommended Pressures


All Models Except FLHRS, FLHX - Standard Shocks

Solo rider up to 150 lbs. (68 kg), hereafter referred to as "Average" 0 0

Solo rider 150-200 lbs. (68-91 kg) 0-10 0-69

Solo rider 200-250 lbs. (91-113 kg) 5-15 35-103

Average rider with passenger up to 150 lbs. (68 kg) 10-15 69-103

Average rider with passenger up to 200 lbs. (91 kg) 20-25 138-172

Maximum GVWR (see Section 2.1 Specifications) 20-35 138-241

FLHRS, FLHX Only - Low Profile Shocks

Solo rider up to 160 lbs. (73 kg), hereafter referred to as "Average" 0-5 0-35

Solo rider 160-200 lbs. (73-91 kg) 0-10 0-69

Use this table as a starting point in determining suitable rear air suspension pressures. Do not exceed

maximum GVWR when loading vehicle and do not pressurize system in excess of 50 psi (345 kPa) for

FLHRS, FLHX models and 35 psi (241 kPa) for all others. Excessive load weight and/or air suspension

pressure can adversely affect handling and lead to loss of vehicle control, which could result in loss of life

I have a early 1980's honda 750 need to know how much air pressure the fork's hold, or need to put in them.

You do not have to put any air in the forks. There was a sticker telling you maximum pressure on the bike. It may still be there. Maximum pressure is not more than 14 pounds. You will never need more than 7 or 8 pounds. First set the rear shocks for a hard or soft ride. Then holding a bicycle foot pump with a pressure gauge on it in your hands , give it one pump (do not go over 10 or 12 pounds pressure). Now bounce on the seat and bleed pressure out of the forks until the front and rear shocks drop at the same time. Your bike suspension is now set up correctly for riding.

shocks are fine, there is a mixtre of air and fork oil in the air shocks. if u want to check, u need a air pump that screws on and has an air gauge on it. harley sells the one for your bike. proper psi is at 13 psi.

What are the recommended maximum psi for the front and rear air shocks?

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.
