Until it is hard except on a hot day because the heat will cause it to expand and pop like mine did.

Trying to find a wiring diagram for air compressor. Rear air ride is out compressor not running at all checked fuses just replaced relay .


I know that you are trying to fix that air ride, but i put these replacement springs on my 93 towncar. Fixed the compressor problem (eliminated it) and cost a whole lot less. The install is kinda hard if you've never dropped a rear end before. Need a good tool set, a couple jacks, and jack stands to get it done. Check it out. Even having a mechanic install them would be cheaper than replacing a compressor.

I have a 1987 cbr 600r Hurricane and i need to know how much air to put in the front forks?


The front forks are adjustable to the type of ride you want. First, set the rear shock to the setting you want soft, medium, or hard. There should be max pressure information in your owners manual and on a sticker on the front forks. Typically the most pressure that can usually be put into a Honda front fork is around 14 PSI. Add, carefully, 10-12 PSI using a hand or foot bicycle pump with a gauge on it. You will probably find this way too stiff. Be careful not to put too much pressure in the forks or you will pop the seals and have to replace them.Then with the bike loaded the way you are going to ride (soft for comfort or hard for two up riding) bounce on the seat. What you want to feel is the front and back suspension dropping at the same time. This is how racers set up there motorcycles for hard cornering. If both the front and rear of the cycle drop together you have an easier time controlling the bike during extreme maneuvers. Since the front is usually stiffer than the back(you added pressure there) slowly bleed the pressure out of the front fork tubes until the the front and back drop together while you are bouncing with the bike loaded the way you are going to ride. Now you are set up for extreme riding conditions. Soft or hard that is how you set up all motorcycle suspensions by balancing the the amount of front cushion/pressure to match the back cushion/pressure.

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.

My suspension is too hard at the rear. Why? all suspension settings are set at their lowest and still it's like riding around with a solid rear end.


Its an older bike. Check your linkage, make sure nothings been overtightened and all the bearings are greased. Run all your clickers in and back them both back out 7 clicks or so. There are both compression and dampening adjusters. One on the cartridge and one down near the linkage.

Tax disc where to fit/rear suspension pressure setting, 1 & 2 up


I cant help with tax disc, but I can help with the setting of the suspension. The ideal setting for the suspension is to set it so the front and back drop together. If the back is too stiff and the suspension compresses in a corner the front is more prone to breaking loose causing the worst kind of slide . If the front is too hard and the suspension drops in a corner the rear end is more prone to breaking loose. This is not as bad losing grip on the front end, but if word gets out nobody will ride with you as a passenger ever again. Set both front and rear shocks near maximum pressure. Now sitting on the bike with it loaded the way you intend to ride bounce on the seat causing the suspension to drop. Now bleed air out of the front or rear shocks until both the front end and back end of the bike drop together. This is your stiffest safe ride setting. If you start with no pressure in the system and add air until the bike drops with front and back in unison, this will be your softest safe riding setting. Riding single or double requires two different settings. This is how racers set up sport bikes for extreme riding.On a Goldwing you will only need the correct settings for extreme emergency conditions , but of course that is when it has to be predictable and it has to be right. Setting it up correctly will also make cornering through the hills much more enjoyable.

Air suspension light came on I turned the car off light went off, then I noticed the rear end of my car was low. What could that be?


It is your air ride suspension. It could be the air bags, the sensors, compressor, wires and many other things. What I did was bought an after market coil spring suspension and converted it from the air ride suspension. The air ride is lovely but costly. It is hard to diagnose that air ride suspension without spending a lot more money then you want. I suggest getting an after market converter kit, but I would make sure it has the sensor plug so that your warning light on your dash goes out....otherwise it will be on forever!

Got the bike used with 8500 mi & no owners 2001 fxdxt


yes, the rear shocks use air pressure to adjust the ride to exactly the way you like it. Only problem is that you don't want to go to your local fuel station and use their pump. You should have gotten a small hand pump with the bike. If not, you can get one at your local dealership or order an aftermarket pump. It usually takes somewhere around 5 psi for most people, I think. The reason I think is that I've never owned a air suspension bike and never asked anyone how much air to put in the system. Some bikes even have air front forks. Seems the air fitting is in the end of one of the grips or something.
