What is the max air you can put in the front air shocks of a 1999 GL1500?

Any ideas? I was wondering this myself. Do I have to buy a mountain bike suspension pump to do this?

Thanks,

Brew

0 to 6 psi for stock fork springs and if you are using Progressive springs, they require zero psi. And yes I use a hand air pump.

I had new tires mounted last week and the Lead Mechanic at our local Honda dealer told me you can add up to 14 but have use a hand pmp. He also told me the valves were added to relieve pressure in the forks.

0-6 psi in the front forks came from my Cylmer 1993-2000 Honda service, repair, maintanence manual.
