1986 Front/Rear Air-Strut Servicing
Been a few weeks since I last posted. I have a simple question with regards to air pressure. The Repair manual states that the front forks can be air-serviced with 0 - 6 psi. The rear I believe states can be serviced 0 - 47psi. But on the side of the bike with the cover off, there is a minimum and maximum air pressure label; minimum being 28psi and max 47psi.
Do I need to have the rear struts serviced at 28psi minimum? I ask because the 1986 GL1200 is a bit tall for me with those pressures (front or rear). I set the front at about 3psi to prevent bottom-out. The rear doesn't appear to bottom out on me at 0 psi. Is it okay to leave the rear at 0 psi, or do I need to service with the minimum strut pressure of 28psi?
