This is very unusual. I've messed with machines much older than this and I've never seen a rear shock frozen. If the shock is indeed frozen, replacement is the only alternative that I know of.

Good Luck

    Replace with aftermarket shock. I use Legend Air Suspensions. They have a lifetime warranty, made my bike ride smoother and have a cool lowering effect when I want it.

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 need to know the proper air pressure for my air shocks for a 275 lbs man


The Service manual changed in 08 for proper air pressure in rear shocks. Before 08 it was 35-45 PSI, now its 45-55 PSI, For a man your size (our size) I would put it about 50 or even 48 somewhere around there. It will leave you some more if you carry a passenger, or a heavy load.

Location of fill valve for air shocks


The fill valve is right above the lid of the left side hard bag, about as far back as the very end of the passenger portion of the seat. Looks like a standard valve stem. If you have a detachable sissy bar you have to remove it first. The rear shocks should have no more that 40 or so psi in them. Solo I have mine at 0-8 psi. Fully loaded I'll run 20 - 25 psi.

Proper air pressure for rear shocks


Um you sure you pumped it up to 150lbs? If you did, you may have already blown the seals in the shocks. I don't believe they were designed for more than 30lbs. I weigh 300 myself and set my air shocks at 15lbs.
