What the heck?

Postby jeffers » Thu Dec 04, 2014 9:39 pm



Ok, I'm puzzled.... I used to be able to get my 1200 aspy up on it's center stand by myself...earlier this past summer, I Changed the rear air shocks and ever since then, I haven't been able to "get it up" :lol: :lol: :lol: Seriously don't know what happened.. I did notice that it is not riding as smoothly as it used to and it drags here and there.. Any help would be greatly appreciated...Thanks

Are you sure you have the correct shocks? Is there air in it? if the bike is dragging sometimes that means it's lower than it was before which means it is harder to get up on the center stand.

You didn't accidentally get 1100 shocks did you? I believe they are shorter.

Do they hold air pressure? If I remember rightly I replaced the seals in my 1100 shocks, but that was four plus years ago.
