Air ride adjustment on 1984 Aspencade

Postby rdhrcwi1 » Sun Jun 05, 2016 9:28 pm



When I turn the key switch I see the air ride digital readout on the dashboard but it seem to change quickly to the temperature gauge.

When can the air ride be adjusted? When the key is on or do I have to have the cycle running?

What is the step by step procedure to adjust the air ride?

Thanks for your replies.

Key on, Push front or rear button. Push increase button. It will stay there for a while...or as long as the increase or decrease button is pushed. you can do it while engine running....dont recommend moving. :shock:

Also bike must be on center stand with no load on tires. (Stay off the bike) If your bike has auto mode, you just set it and forget it. Auto system will not operate with brakes on. Manual system may not either, not sure about that??

Key on, push either front or rear AND the increase or decrease button simultaneously, while on center stand, you standing to the side of the bike. Inflate or deflate to desired pressure. brakes won't matter but you're not going anywhere anyway. You'll see a different pressure c stand vs side stand or while sitting on it. Accuracy is on c stand.
