well it's now on 3 wheels , ,







having some problems with the shocks , there finding it hard to lift the bike, don't know if the psi guage in the dash board was correct but i had it up to 84 and they never lifted the bike, so i bypassed the bike compressor and hooked it up to compessor tank , that worked





i think it still needs more air

the dash board psi guage was not lying it had 84psi in them and there were not even half way up , these jag backends are heavey, so i messed around and tryed the old stock coil spring back on , it held it but was a bit soft , so i have fitted the two , and it seems fine this way i can add air to compensate for the body and top box ,and passenger,



this picture shows two shocks on the right , notice how low the left side is !



and from the side view, i have only tacked everything as the body may hit and have to be moved
