GL1200 Aspencade Air suspension questions.

I was previously running about half way up the display front and rear and realized I was probably grossly over in the front. I believe the decal says 6 is the max in the front. I went down to 6 in the front and now there is a lot of travel in the front.

Was the pressure too high?

What do you guys run F/R 1 up and 2 up?

First off set the air to the max (inside the zone indicated for front and rear by the parenthesis on each setting ) with it on the center stand then ride it and see what you think ... its only supposed to be adjusted on stand according to manual but once its set to max you can adjust it minutely once its on its wheels

I typically run 3-4 bars on front and just below max on rear . It shows you where to run it

3-4 bars is above max on the scale I believe it's only 1 or 2 that being said I had 0 dive in the front end.

If you are sure the fluid level and viscosity are correct and you have no leaks, you can set the pressure to max. The problem is, with those bars, you can't really tell what pressure you are running.
Set the TRAC system up a notch if you are getting a lot of dive.

Maximum pressure may cause some leakage past the seals and also may make the ride pretty harsh. With stock springs I kept mine at 2 to 3 PSI and that gave a decent ride. With Progressives, no air is needed.

Why ain't we ridin'?
