Sorry for not being clear. The shocks bled down when they originally blew on the ride. After I replaced the seals, the air stayed at the exact pressure I originally put in. Even after 3 days it...

The oil seals definitely blew. The right ones was leaking and wouldn't hold air. Then the next day, the left one did the same thing. It was a bouncy ride home. Those instructions on replacing the...

Yeah, both halves on mine are worn all the way through on both right and left sides. It was a 1600 mile trip but I didn't notice the shock leaking until about 700 miles into it. If this is normal...

Question for Austone users.

On a week long trip to Florida last week, I lost both rear shocks (Progressive 416s). The bike would bounce a lot when we'd hit a dip. I could hear it rubbing a bit when we would bottom out but...

I could more than likely rebuild the oem alternator myself but it is running fine right now and I need it for a backup next week. The parts for the lactrical would have taken too long to get here...

You are a genius Dave! :nerd: I didn't think of the heat issue. When you add it to the equation, it makes a lot of sense. The high out put alternators are notorious for the high heat they put...

Thanks John. I looked at the website when Mike posted it earlier. It seems that it would cost more to ship it and have it repaired than what I paid for it new. I went all over the inside of the...
