Yeppers, that's where it's at, just above the rear brake pedal switch. Max pressure on my 82 is 56 psi, yours may differ.

DO not inflate with a compressor pump unles you have a restrictor. You will blow your shocks out.
I used to have a foot pump.
Alos only add or adjust the pressure with bike on center stand. WIth it on the sidestand the compressed shocks wioll give a false reading.It will also push the air out quicker.
Its high pressure on thos shocks but small volume so a lil air goes along way.
Good thing to have is one of the air guages with the release valve on it. I bought mine at harbor freight,
This was essential to me due to the air pressure lessening just as you remove the air guage giing you a lower reading.
i would have to fill up a higher than recommended air pressure and then check with a aguage making sure to stop releasing air 8lbs before my desired reading.
With the other guage you simplkey read the dial and hit the release to just about one or two PSI before your desired setting.

Wow, sounds like you should set your air pressure regulator at the pressure you want, then you have no chance of overfilling it.
