Now that she's running :clapper:my next project is to get the on board suspension system operational. And again I am calling on my friends here for their assistance. What should I look for and are there any common and/or frequent issues with the system that might point me in the right direction. The online Clymer manual has been a Godsend but I still would appreciate some guidance on where to start with my troubleshooting.



Thanks!



One more question....can the air shocks be adjusted manually while I get the suspension system operational?

On my 82 Aspencade there is a manual fill valve located by the compressor in the false shelter I just use shop compressor to build pressure, then use control buttons on shelter door to adjust shocks.

I can't pull it from the top of my head right now but it will be in the manual.

Hello,

the most common problem, is the dessicant breaking down, and letting moisture build up in the lines.

it usually shows up, when you notice air is bleeding between, the front and rear shocks.

the compressor, and desiccant holder, is situated under the right glove compartment, above the increase and decrease buttons, it is really fiddly to get out, the manual will show how it get it out and how to renew the dessicant.

Once out, use compressed air and blow all the moisture from the lines before reinstalling.

front shocks are 0 to 6lbs and the rear shocks, start and a minimum of 28lbs for a single rider.

good luck,

Thanks for the starting point Robbie & main. I already have Clymer on the computer and it's a Godsend, although the images are a little ambiguous at times. I'll work it out or be back with more questions.
