82 Aspencade onboard air fitting,..

Postby Latitude42 » Sun Apr 10, 2011 11:41 pm



I just picked upa an 1982 Aspencade, I'm giving it a complete once over before I ride it.... it has the onboard air ride pump from the factory mounted on the false tank... one of the POs un hooked the front forks from the system and plugged the line from the control unit with a bolt, the back was still hooked up, but the pump didn't work. It was just a bad connection... now I want to put it all back together, but I need the fitting that goes from the hose on the control unit to the front fork. The PO put an air nossel in the fork.... See pic... I need the fitting (I don' know what it looks like) that connects the line from the control unit to the fork.... any ideas where I can get one???
Thanks....

Holy cow! I have been in search for this exact part too!! If the other member doesn't get back to you, would you consider selling it to me?

I too have been looking for the 90* elbow for exactly the same reason. You can find imperial sizes, but no metric ones, and the part is no longer available from the parts houses (#13 in the fische).

Someone suggested to me to buy a larger brass imperial size one, and re-thread it to the size I need. I haven't checked out a hydraulic shop, or a fork lift repair shop.

Oh, and I just lost my RH lid for my GL1100A, so looking for an replacement.

Yes, WingAdmin, I've been "meaning" to do those, but like everything, procrastinating, and now that I can actually ride, I've been doing that.

I also need to overhaul/clean the starter (already replaced the battery, but still doing the same thing) and finish installing the Air Horn on Tuesday.

Then there is the head light modulator also, to complete the Safety items on the bike (light and horn) to avoid accidents in the future, rather than be involved in them.

And last, to do the mod to the trunk lid, since mine is cracking from the rack, I want to reinforce it also.
