I'm planning on giving the suspension a 'once-over' before I start longer rides.

I haven't even looked beyond the obvious yet....and am wondering if there is anything not immediately obvious that I should be on the lookout for.

I had originally planned on going over the whole machine this winter past...but the only heated storage I could find for a reasonable price was a hundred mile trip. (work..kids..wife = no time)

This wing doesn't have the onboard compressor...and while I've toyed with the idea..I prefer to keep it as close to original as possible...


Appears that the air lines from the rear run right up to the front...is the system closed or does it combine with the front ?

Thought I would ask questions here first, as the responses are quick and knowledgeable...

-Thnx

:waving:The front and rear are separate. Air pressure for the forks on all GL1100'sis 14-21 PSI and do not use compressed air for the forks, only use a hand pump. The rear suspension air pressure for all '81-'82 and the '83 Aspencade is 28-57 PSI. The air pressure for the rear suspension on a 1980 GL1100 is 28-43 PSI. On the 1983 Standard and Interstate rear suspension air pressure is 0-57 PSI.

:waving:On the tach you'll see a light for the rear suspension and if it ever comes on and stays on that will be an indication that the rear is below the minimum of 28 PSI.
