As far as i know you can run 0-8psi in front forks its hard to get that small amount of pressure then read it without losing any i took all the pressure out then added mine in with a special pump a harley guy had how else is everyone else doing it im running 6psi

So you're putting Harley air in a Goldwing. Better watch out, parts might start falling off. :lol: Just Kidding. I have progressive springs and they say not to run air with them.
