So how much air pressure do you carry in your air suspension?

According to my manual the GL1500 has a range of 0 - 57 PSI.

some of the SE versions came with a air nozzle on top of the forks to allow you to put a bit of air in, not all 1500s have it.

I used to load the bike up with passenger gear etc, pump up the rear air pressure and let the bike raise up, then release the air until the bike started to go down and then just add a few more pounds, hope that makes sense to you,

2-3 psi in the front and either 20 or 40 psiin the back, depending on if I'm riding with a passenger or not. Let me tell you something that may drive you a bit crazy as it did me, if you think you're going to keep those forks at equal pressure side to side, GOOD LUCK! I spent the better part of an hour trying to get them perfect and it just wasn't happening. It takes a split second of added pressure to shoot it up 4 pounds. Again, good luck and don't let the equal pressures in the front stress you out. I can assure you that mine are probably not equal right now and there is no way I could tell while riding.

Respectfully,

Ed

1500s don't have it.

I just use progressives all around and 35 lbs in the rear when it's just me and 57 when it's 2 up.
