Shock sensor light will not turn off

If Original shocks are air operated, you can use rancho shocks but will have to install a diode to turn off the light. Be sure to disconnect the air compressor (located under left-rear fender between LR Tire & Rear Bumper - i'ts hidden in there.)

I need to know the factory settings for the front and rear suspension on my 2004 Honda cb1300

There is no factory setting. Each motorcycle needs to be set up by the rider for there particular weight. How you set it up depends on whether both the front and rear suspension are adjustable or not. Basically when you sit on the motorcycle with your gear on you want the front and the back of the motorcycle to drop at the same time. This mostly comes into play on hard or extreme cornering. If the front is too soft, the front wheel might wash out first affectively placing you in the face plant position. Likewise if the back slides out first, and it does not go too far,you at least have a chance to recover. Worst case scenario you will high side and again achieve the face plant position. If you have adjustable pressure on the front forks set the front air pressure first to soft or stiff (depending on which you prefer) , then tighten or loosen the spring on the rear shock or, raise or lower the rear shock air pressure to achieve the front and back both dropping at the same time when you bounce on the seat.If there is no front fork adjustment then adjust the back to match the front. If you carry a passenger the rear will need to be stiffened . At least be aware of the difference in handling, if you decide not to readjust for a short drive, to take it easy with passenger on the back. If you are adjusting clicker shocks, Turn the screws and count the clicks. Best starting point is the middle position (5 out of ten). Make minor adjustments to the dampening from there.

1997 cadillac deville 4 door sedan can you replace factory rear air shocks with good ol' after market air shocks ( these are the ones that you yourself can adjust the ride height by putting air into them)...

You can, but they won't adjust like your factory ones (automatically) Lots of folks replace w/aftermarket shocks instead of depending on factory units.

I want 2 knw the factory suspension settings for my 06 yamaha yz250

The settings depend on your weight and style of riding (terrain) . Place your settings in the middle , ride , and adjust them from there. Example: If you can adjust the front forks to ten positions (ten clicks) Set both front forks to 5 clicks. Set the rear shock about halfway or on the middle click. Ride the bike carefully over some whoops and jumps and make adjustments by how it rides. The bike will be easier to control when you are close to the right setting for you. My dirt bike rear shock was set to "0" when i got it. Every time I went over a jump the rear shock would try to throw you over the handle bar.

I have a crf150f and need rebuilt rear shocks were can i get them

Call around some local dealers or parts places, especially ones that are into racing. They should be set up to ship your shock out to a good suspension company. "Factory Connection, C-Cycle, W.E.R, to name a few"

Service ride control on it sounds like air is leaking out of the rear shocks

If it sounds like the air is leaking out of both rear shocks it is probably time for a new set of shocks. If yours are original from factory. They are most likely dry rotted and full of holes. If you continue to drive the car in this condition you can plan on replacing the air compressor too. The compressor isn't meant to run continuously and it will burn up while trying to keep up.

How do i replace the back shocks?

if you bounce the car by putting your weight on the rear bumper with your knee you can test the rear shocks. If the car bounces more than once on the way up you need shocks. I generally replace shocks on new cars with factory installed shocks anywhere from 40,000 - 50,000 miles. There are bolts at the top and bottom of the shocks that will have to be removed. You can do this a little easier by removing the rear wheels and placing the car on Jack Stands.

Adjustable rear shocks

There are 2 holes at the base of the shock absorbers. Turn them clockwise for a softer drive. At factory they are setted at 3. THey go from 1 to 6.
