Anyone remember the recommended fork pressure for the front tubes on a GL1100a?
I have the rears set at 350 pa (label says 200-400pa).
I forget what I have fronts set to but I think it might be at the high end.
Thanks

the book calls for 14 to 21 psi in the front forks on all 1100s .

while on this, do you measure the pressure with rider? or on the center stand? or side stand? because it will be different depending on load.

This is done with the front wheel off of the ground, according to the manual. But if this is the case, then why can you adjust pressures when both tires are on the ground?

Check and adjust on the center stand, no body on the bike.

that satisfies my curiosity.. just tells me i have been running with too much pressure and definitely need new springs in the rear shocks!

Thanks Bagmaster. I see it in the owners manual now. :)


CAUTION:
• Do not use the side stand when adjusting
suspension air pressures, as you will get false pressure
readings and the motorcycle may fall,
over. Always use the center stand when
adjusting air pressures.

Thanks all. I have the original owners manual around somewhere but I can't find it. The Clymers doesn't list them (that I can find). I take all my measurements on the side stand so maybe they are higher then what they be on center stand. I can't read the label on steering head as I have a cover over that area.
Thanks All
