Where can I find the DIY article on the air compressor dessicant changing for a GL1500?

Right as soon as I write it. I've put off doing this now for two years. This winter for sure! :)

Dessicant is usually small beads that absorb moisture. You'll commonly see it in packages containing electronics, they're little packets that say "do not eat" on them.

The compressor has a dessicant pack in it, full of the little beads, to keep moisture from getting into your shocks. You can see more about it here, on the 1100 How To page: How to service your air compressor dessicant
