Front and Rear Shock Pressures for an 81 Goldwing

Postby sagh » Sun May 20, 2012 9:49 pm



Hi there, I'm just wondering what is recommended for the front and rear shock pressures for my bike? I know Honda has a guideline but I don't have the original manual. Also, if someone could help me out on what the weight capacity that the bike could handle, that would be great too. Thanks for the help.

It looks like you have a Standard, so I'll quote numbers from the 81 Std owners manual.

The combined weight of the rider, passenger, cargo and all accessories must not exceed 490 lbs, the vehicle capacity load. Cargo weight alone should not exceed 60 lbs.

Front suspension is 14 psi to 21 psi, rear is 28 to 57 psi:
