Rear Shocks

Postby sundayracr » Sat Jun 15, 2013 3:14 pm



The red light for the rear air shocks on the gauge of my '81 1100I is flashing on and off at various speeds. I assume I need to add some air to the rear shocks, but have no idea of where the air valves are or how to get to them (fairly new owner). I have researched and know the correct pressures and know to use only a hand pump, but just don't know how to go about doing it.

I have asked a couple of questions before and always got excellent answers, so I will offer my thanks in advance.

the valve for adding air is on the right side of the bike behind the rear master cylinder.

As you are sitting on the bike, it is under the right hand plastic cover. Towards the bottom corner, below the rear master cylinder reservoir. It might have a chrome screw on cap on the valve.
Happy riding! :D
