What pressure should be run in the forks and what are the back shocks set at. This may have been asked before but I couldn't find the answer. It's a 84 interstate if that makes it different.

It all depends on riders weight and f you are carrying pillion etc. I personally set the forks to 6psi and the rear to 20 solo and up to around 40 with the wife aboard. Every rider is different, some shorter riders set the suspension so they can get their feet down which is the wrong way, but if you are short legged then thats what you have to do! :p

Trust me I have short legs, I just get my feet down for balance while stopped. The forks are set at 4 lbs. and the back shocks at 10 lbs. It just seems not to be enough, thanks for the feed back.

10psi isn't enough on a GL1200 Chief43. 4 in the forks is fine in my opinion but you really need at least 15-20 in the back even solo.
