can panniers/guards be removed as single unit

Post by framickie » Sat Sep 25, 2010 4:56 pm

i want to remove panniers and top box from my 1986 aspencade to do multiple services on the rear end.
it looks possible to remove the whole lot in one piece would anyone have any experience or advice before i start.
p.s. what is the easiest way to release air pressure from rear shocks, my air pressure switches only work occassionally
as bike spent several years parked, i managed to pump them up but cant release all the air

thanks Frank

Unfortunately no, at least I havnt found a way, not that I have really looked, I never take the top box off to do any rear servicing work anyway

As far as releasing the air from the shocks when you do the maintenance on the air pump when you unscrew the air lines any air in the shocks should be released.
