Aspencade air gauge question

Post by ram11397 » Sun Jun 14, 2015 5:56 pm

Ok i fixed my front forks stopped the leak, changed fluids before when i put air in i fill the rear first then the front. Now i fill the rear and when i push the front button it now shows air is already in there! around 15 ibs is this right? pressing the rear button fills both?

Yes. This is why the manual tells you to also check the rear first, then do the front. If you do the front first, you will set the pressure to what you want, then when you select the back, it will move pressure into the front as well, undoing what you just set.

Never check JUST the back. Always check the back, then the front.
