I want to add an on-board air compressor to my 1100 Interstate. What years and models have ones that will fit mine? Is there a part number that I can use as a refer?
Thanks

If you can find one from a 82 Aspencade, you'll need the false ttank door with it.

I think there are a lot of other components that need to be transplanted too. Would it be easier for Kenneth to just carry a small 12v compressor?

+1 for the portable compressor. It will be much less expensive and if it fails just get another. There's more space in the trunk than the false tank or fairing.

You will need the compressor, the false tank door, the control unit, the airlines, and the valved for the right front fork.

And probably an entire day if not two to install everything.

I have the controler mounted already, and I need to find the rest of the items needed. The small compressor that I have now works OK, but I wanted to Air On The Fly.

I'm not sure you can "air on the fly"

I think the ignition key has to be in the PARK position before power goes to the pump.

Not positive about this as I have only recently purchased an '82 GL1100 Aspencade & not yet ridden it.

Oldgoat is correct, if you wire it up as designed, the ignition must be in park. Since you will be hooking everything up , just choose a power source that is hot when the ignition is on.

My owners manual says:

Pressure increases can be made with the onboard air suspension system only when the ignition switch is at P.

It also states:

Do not check air pressure or relaease air pressure while riding, as instability & loss of control may result.

With those of you with '82 Aspencades who can adjust on the fly, maybe some previous owners have wired the compressor to a terminal that is live when the ignition is ON.

Just a thought.

My 82 Aspencade can air up or down on the FLY too.

I had a 82 Aspencade before and it had air on the fly. That is why I want to add it to this one. I use it when I am stopped at a light, or something like that. I had adjusted while driving before, but do not recommend it.

yep the on board compressors do allow for on the fly use, because ignition needs to be on, the park position, is used for pumping tires up.

the digital dash is also required, to show what the pressures are, without this, it could be easy to overdo it, particually in the front, where only a max. of 6lb is allowed.

on the fly altering of pressures is not recomended by honda though.
