I have a 2008, and for solo, air the shocks to 10 psi, me and the wife, 15 psi.

The air valve is behind the left saddle bag under the chrome trim rail.

SOURCE: clutch adjustment

There are to different adjustments you can make. The most common adjustment made is on the clutch cable under the rubber boot real easy to figure out once you slide the boot off. The second is at your ramp and ball. I don't ride a RK so I don't know the exact method, but if you stop by your local library they might have a manuel that explains it in detail. My library does.

You could have the dealership install the 103 CI kit if you like but no it didnt come from the factory with that engine in it already, only the CVO bikes such as the FLHRSE and FLHRSEI came with the 103 CI motor installed from the factory.

SOURCE: I just installed low profile

Check for leaks. The pump puts out very little air volume. It may take a while to get the shocks pumped up.

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.

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.

2005 harley police bike when I hit a bump in the road it feels like the shocks are bottoming out what could be the problem


The front forks can be stiffened by changing to a heavier weight fork oil. I run 30 weight oil in mine. Make sure you use fork oil because it has a special anti-foaming agent in it.

On the rear shocks, they're adjustable. Just turn the adjuster to put more pre-load on the springs. This requires a special shock adjuster tool.

Good Luck

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.
