On-Board compressor

Postby deepsix777 » Sun Mar 15, 2015 6:44 pm



I have a 92 aspencade trike I checked the air pressure on the LCD panel. the pressure read 126 (lol) I tried to decrease the pressure by using the switch that didn't help still 126. I can hear the pump run when I press the switch to increase it so I know the pump is working. the PO put new air shocks on in 2012. is there a reset button or what do I do to correct the problem

Have you tried disconnecting battery for a few minutes.

Just in case you have not seen this, here are the instructions for air pressure control of the rear suspension:

This is from section 12 of the service manual.

You might look there for further troubleshooting possibilities.
Fortunately, I have not had a problem with the suspension air system so I have no personal knowledge of malfunction repair for the system.

I seriously doubt the little on-board compressor can even get that much pressure built. Some changes were made to your suspension for the axle, you will have to get underneath and see what was done.

When pushing pcheck and pressure up does the compressor run and when pressure down a click heard?
This is what I do
Local and need repair help with your 1500, Valkyrie or ST please PM

Are you getting a strange reading because the compressor has been disconnected when it was triked?

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

Re: up-date on my On Board Compressor

Postby deepsix777 » Tue Mar 17, 2015 12:18 pm

OK update on my problem; press the P-check I can hear a click, press P-check and increase compressor runs (took a ruler and watched it rise up), press the P-check and decrease switch I can hear a click but not lowering the pressure. Felt both boots under the back and there firm.( I had 12 inches from the ground to the bottom of the fender. just went out and checked it still the same 12 inches). I guess i'll carry a ruler when I ride 2-up :lol:
