On the 88's there is a "Hose":shock: that you use to add air to the seats correct? What does it look like and where on the bike is it located?:?

If you have an adjustable air seat then it's an after market seat. As far as the optional air hose I have no idea, haven't owned a 1200 yet.

I seen this on an aftermarket GL1500 saddle, there was an air bladder in the saddle that you could pump some air into.

Ok, these are from an 89 owners manual, should be the same for the 88.



Location of air outlet.


Instructions.

This is getting funny. There is supposed to be a hose in the trunk. It is manuel inflation but I didn't want to ask "How do I blow my seat." To many possible answers. The hunt continues.

I've got an '88 -- nothing about blowing my seat on mine at all ...

The stuff there from Bagmaster's post is all about the onboard air-compressor used to work the rear suspension and provide output to the fitting illustrated -- now THAT fitting is often accompanied by a 10-foot braided (cloth over rubber) air hose that can be used to inflate tires and such.

Nothing on an air-bagged seat that I've got though -- I have seen after-market seats/saddles that are air bladdered as Matterman posted

I bought an 88 seat with air bladder and the manual inflator hose was routed underneath and pulled from the right side cubby compartment under the right speaker. Mine wouldnt hold air so I removed it. They are all after market, some install under the seat cover, others can be strapped on top.

Thank you for all of the good responses. Mine will hold air, however, I was sitting at a traffic light and I felt on the left side of the seat. There was a little piece of plastic sticking out so I pushed it and my seat went down about 2". I have tried to put air back in but have not found the "Hose" to do so.

One of the aftermarket manufacturers uses a system that will "self inflate" if you open the air valve with no weight on the seat. Try that maybe?
