Air connections?

Postby JDavis » Fri Apr 03, 2015 1:19 am



I have no idea where these two hoses go so I can get the suspension up to get it on the center stand easier. I know it's not a very good photo i'll get a better one.
Don't mind the mess of electrics haha.

They appear to be the air lines that attach to "stock" rear shocks. It also appears that you have aftermarket shocks on the back of your motorcycle... so that's probably why they don't attach to anything.
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

Yes, Hawkeye is correct, you have after market spring/hyd. shocks, the hose's are for the air shocks that came on the bike. You can buy proggressive air shocks and then use those hose's for them, I assume the compressor works, if not then you would need a to replace or rebuild it. :mrgreen:

I'm gonna end up turning it into a cafe racer type bike so i'll be getting taller shocks.
