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.

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: 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.

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.

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.
