1985 LTD Air Ride Pressure

Postby NBWINGER » Thu Jun 09, 2016 6:59 am



I have a 1985 1200 LTD with air ride that is measure in Kpa. Just wondering if anyone can suggest that the recommended front and rear pressures should be (max and min)? I weigh in at 230 lbs.

Thanks

Welcome to the forum, lots of great people and info the be found here

the air pressure for the bike is really relative to your comfort level while riding,IMHO,,, I don't know about kpa but I think the max on the 1200 if I remember right was like 6 to 8 PSI in the front and 60 PSI on the rear.my bike had bars not numbers but I think that was the limits. honestly I just pumped mine up till I liked the ride
I ride 2 up often and pull a camper so mine stayed maxed out most of the time. progressive springs in the front is a worthwhile mod as it eliminates the need for any air in the front

The LTD has an "auto" function for the air pressure also. Just move the lever to auto and it will put air in to level the bike. Then you can adjust it manually more or less to suit you.

Air ride will no longer adjust. Every time I turn key on with bike on centre stand I get EEE on compressor read out screen. I put 40 lb of air in tank and when I released the hose fitting a fair bit of what seems like oil came out of the hose that I had been pumping air into.
Now what?
