Arnott® Launches New Lines of True Onboard Adjustable Motorcycle Air Suspension

Arnott® Motorcycle Air Suspension -- the leader in True Onboard Adjustable Air Suspension kits for motorcycles -- announces the launch of two new, completely redesigned lines of Motorcycle Air Suspension kits for many popular Harley-Davidson®, Indian®, Kawasaki®, Suzuki®, Victory®, Yamaha® and Honda® motorcycles including the Gold Wing.

Arnott's new premium Motorcycle Air Suspension kit for the 2001-2016 Honda Gold Wing (MC-2912 & MC-2925) includes a custom-tuned FOX® damper. The kits are designed to provide additional height adjustability and a ride far superior to any motorcycle suspension kit available in the marketplace today.

The Arnott Motorcycle Air Suspension product line is designed to give motorcycle enthusiasts a welcome choice when it comes to their passion.

The Arnott kit boasts Arnott's TruAIR technology -- true adjustable air suspension, not just simple air cylinders, 'air-assisted' devices, or worse: shabby contraptions contrived from automotive part castoffs and sold as cheap cycle shock knockoffs.

Arnott's two new Motorcycle Air Suspension kit categories include:

-- Ultimate Ride Series: top shelf premium performance for the Gold Wing, offers comfort, and quality for the serious, rider ... starting at $1,499 retail.

-- Smooth Ride Series: available for the 2003-2007 Honda VTX, these applications are a step up from stock shocks for the motorcyclist about town, offering height and air spring adjustability at only $599 retail.

Ultimate Ride or Smooth Ride ... all Arnott Motorcycle Air Suspension kits are backed by fast, friendly customer support and the company's renowned Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Welcome to the forum!
Which systems are made to work with the 1500 Wings on-board compressor?
How do these compare in construction to the commonly used Progressive air shocks?

I know the company's reputation for awesome air bag systems!

Good chance they don't make and have never sold a system for goldwings.

Arnott’s new adjustable FOX® Air Suspension System for the Honda Gold Wing GL 1800 has been custom designed to replace the original rear shock & preload adjuster.

I didn't bother to read much of it, made the assumption it was probably mostly Harley stuff since wings already have adjustable suspension.

The Arnott Gold Wing Kit is designed for the GL1800 (which does not have an air compressor). It looks like Progressive only has a steel spring for the rear. Arnott's mono-shock is built with a multi-ply Goodyear air spring attached to a Fox damper using a Patent-Pending method. The Arnott air shock provides a great ride (like riding on air) and significantly more height adjustability.

So, you are saying it has no spring other than air? Does it have a sensor that works with the suspension display on the bike? Where do you mount the compressor, is it small enough to fit where the stock hydraulic unit goes?

The compressor mounts in the battery tray and there is no sensor for the OE suspension display. Here is the installation manual which may provide additional information: http://arnottmanuals.com/Reader/defa...x?part=MC-2912

Hey Arnott and company...

you do know that the 2000 Goldwing is a GL1500, it is NOT an 1800.

I highly suggest you folks check your specs before you put up your advertisements....

your adverts "should say" 2001-xxxx
