Gotta a question for you experts........... I recently rebuilt the rear shocks on my 82 1100A. Before the rebuild, I had an air leak. I rebuilt the shocks with new seals and progressive springs. Since the rebuild, the air leak seems to be worse. My question is about the load capacity of the progressive springs, will riding two up hurt without air. The bike rides great with just me, but with the system leaking down, will the progressives be able to carry the load. Thanks.

Are you sure the air was leaking from inside the shock? They can also leak where the hose connects to the shock, and at the switch panel.

I rebuilt the shocks because the springs were shot. I was not sure where the air was leaking from. What I know now is that it is leaking worse. I have checked all the connections for tightness. The shocks are dry on the shaft.
