On my 1999 GL1500SE I have the LCD unit in the dash.When I press the compressor increase or decrease button for the rear shock the reading in the LCD is real erratic. For example, I press increase and the reading may jump from 30 to 50. Release the button and then press it again to check the pressure and it may read 40 so I will have to add more air. When I do get it up to desired pressure it will hold that pressure and not leak out. I dont think it is the LCD unit as the radio portion of the display works fine.

I have a friend with a Goldwing and his LCD unit reads increase or decrease in pressure in a steady movement up or down when the button is pressed.

Any idea on what may cause my problem? I would like to fix it this winter along with my other maintenance work .

Thank You
Mike

Hi Mike. The valve that the switches operates could be bad, they often allow air to leak back and give odd readings.

Might just be dirty switches. Are you holding pressure check button first and while pushing increase / decrease? If so, pull the switch unit out and spray the switches with electrical contact cleaner.

ALL our switches and electric connectors need pm with this yearly.

I dont think it would be the switch. When pressed they will keep the air pump engaged. It is only the dash reading that seems to be a bit erratic. Once I get the shock set to desired pressure it will hold that pressure.
It is really not a big deal. I just thought if it was a simple fix I would do it. I have owned the bike for 6 years and it has always been that way.
Thanks
Mike
