The manual for my '86GL Interstate says to remove the caps and fill both forks with air. The fork on the brake side of the bike has a cap and air inlet which I filled to 6 psi. On the clutch side, there is the same little cap but it does not have an air inlet.

Is this normal or has someone replaced the air inlet with something non-stock?

Thanks for answering a very simple question.

There is a chrome valve stem type cap on the right side(front brake) of the fork on my 86 Interstate. Never recall seeing anything on the left. Then again, I never really looked.
