Air ride part....need proper part name 1985 LE

Postby NBWINGER » Tue Sep 13, 2016 6:20 pm



On the lower right side of the fairing is the compressor switch and digital front and rear pressure gauges. After much trouble shooting of the auto air ride system my mechanic has determined that the part located directly behind the compressor switch and gauge panel is not functioning. He described it as a sealed unit (part is encased in epoxy according to him). I need to know if anyone has any idea what part this might be and the proper name for it so I can try to find a replacement. Sorry no pic.

try letting your bike mechanic look at this diagram.............http://www.partspitstop.com/oemparts/a/ ... istributor maybe with this you can figure out what the part is that you need to get your air suspension working again.

yeah, i like eBay. i can usually find most of the parts i need from them, but sometimes ya just gotta go with places like partzilla and other more "expensive" outlets.
