85 Aspencade Air Shocks

Post by Poohman » Tue Mar 12, 2013 6:55 pm

Just wanted to see if anyone knows if I have bad shocks or knows where I can get a repair or rebuild kit for my shocks. They bottom out hard when I go over a bump and when I push the Air button on the right side to air up the shocks it goes up to 2 bars then goes back down to 1 bar. New one's are so expensive and really can't afford new ones. I would like to rebuild them if possible and would need instructions and a place where I can buy the parts to rebuild them.

You can start by reading this viewtopic.php?f=5&t=15790
Like it says there are some how to's videos to watch and that is how I learned to do mine on the 1100 and the 1200 that I own.

Yup, the "how to's" mentioned above are easy to follow. I just decided to change out the air shocks for progressive coil over shocks, my GL1200 interstate doesn't have an on board air compressor so it was an easy decision for me and much cheaper than new air shocks.
