On my LTD, the air ride system works great, with no flaws. But when I use the external port to air up tires or whatever, I do not get any air. The compressor runs but I dont get anything out of the hose or the valve on the unit. The hose is clear, I can blow through it. Any thoughts? Thanks

On the GL 1500 the Ignition Switch has to be in Park for the outlet to work.

My '96 has very little pressure out of the hose - I've never really dug into it to try and find a reason why.

I have a dumb question. Being a recent owner of a 1984 GL1200 Aspencade, how do I use the out-socket?



- Where is the hose (long enough to be extended to the tires) stored in the bike? Do I have to have my own compressor hose separate from the bike?



- Do you have to keep the engine running while you are using it to keep the battery from dying?

First off, there is no dumb question if you don't know. What is dumb is having a problem and not asking.Especially on this forum, these people are kind and helpful.
The hose doesn't come with the bike as far as I know. Several places sell them for the Goldwing, most Honda dealers have them. They are long enough to reach the tires.

I know that the GL 1500 has to be in Park to get the outlet to work. Above old retread said the GL 1200 also.

If the Ignition Switch is in Park position, the engine won't be running. Airing up the tires won't run the battery down.

The air pump on the Goldwings do not put out a lot of volume.I saw a guy in a campground trying to airup an air mattress and ran his battery down. Someone loaned him a 12 volt air mattress inflater.

Whichita Scorpion,



Thanks for your advice. I think I will stick to using the air compressor only for adjusting the suspension air pressures. I will keep going to a motorcycle shop every so often for the tires.
