How do you fill and check the air pressure for the front suspension. Please help.

that depends on whether they are air assist or not
and if air, then whether you have a compressor or not, however i am going to assume they are air you do not have a compressor.
If you look at the top of one of your fork tubes, you will see coming out of the side a schrader valve - just like is used on a tire. you can measure with a regular tire gauge, but be careful not to lose any air as there isn't much to lose. and then pump it to your desired pressure with a bicycle pump. (if you try to use compressed air be very very careful not to blow a seal! ) and that is all there is to it.

Your Interstate won't have the compressor so do like Barry says but be very carefull you don't put more than 5 - 10 lbs in. Check your capacity first so you don't blow the seals. I think the 1100 holds more than the 0 - 6 psi mine is rated for. I run 2 - 4 lbs.

1100 front fork spec is around 21psi. I regularly run mine around 40psi and have never blown a seal in over 15 years. Measure pressure with forks fully extended since it's such a small volume of air the pressure changes drastically when they're compressed.
