1998 gl1500se air compressor

Postby redhonda » Sat Jun 22, 2013 9:27 pm



does anyone know the part numbers for the air hose that fill the shocks. there is a tear in the air hose, which I believe was caused by rocks from road. I have tried to find the number or the size of the air hose. looks like 2 of the right side hoses have leaks in them

thanks for any help

If you are talking about the hoses that run from the shocks to the connections it is a common hose that can be found at any auto parts store. Take a piece with you, measure how long the hoses are and check on each end for very small"o"rings which you may have to replace also. Good luck.

had thought of that as a last resort, because I didn't know if the hose would come off the connectors and the connectors be okay.


thanks

If you're talking about the hose that lives in the saddlebag that connects to your compressor, Cyclemax sells them for $9: http://cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/gl1500_air_hose/86/698

the air hose I need are the ones that run from the compressor (on-board original se) to the shocks. by looking at the bike these are very small hoses.

The OEM line to the air shock is shown in this picture - and it is not available from Honda anymore:

However, you mentioned that the lines are very small, and that they run to the "shocks" - plural. If this is the case, I suspect you have aftermarket Progressive shocks on your bike. How small are the lines, and do they run to just one shock, or both?

this is a picture of the small black air hose I need. in the next picture you will see that it is connected to a t-type fitting that runs from one side of the bike to the other and these hoses are connected to the air shocks.

It is the same as that used for air shocks on car. Air shock kits on Ebay

The wing only has one air shock for OEM with one hose running across fender from compressor to air manifold valves which control shock air pressure. Then from manifold valves to air shock on right side a shorter hose.

That piping is aftermarket and available at any parts store. Not sure that piping would automatically be connected to compressor it might have a remote fill valve.

That looks exactly like the stiff pneumatic hose that Progressive supplies with its air shocks. If you have Progressive shocks, talk to them, I'm sure they'd be able to supply you with some.
