Unless Honda put air suspension on the 2013 model, the GL1800 does not have air suspension. It has a rear suspension preload, which is hydraulic. With the bike running, select the down arrow under the preload adjust label. When the number on the dash gets down to 1 or less, it is as lightly pressurized as it is going to get. That is all you can do, unless you wish to change the suspension components with shorter, lower ones.

Welcome, Zel, we love photos. Most questions will get an intelligent response, and some may even get a humourous response. Have a great day, and keep dodging those raindrops of the monsoon.

Where did you buy this bike?????...if from a dealer OR if a dealer is available you can get hands on advise. Even if you bought the bike from a private owner, if a local dealer is available, get to know them and the best way is to show they may be making a profit off of you in the future. THEN, when they tell you what to do, post that and see if the advise is good or not. Find people you're confident in dealing with, then screw them............dang, i'm the guy redial was talking about for a humourous response, glad that's out of the way

Find ALL the local resources you can and then post the advise they gave you. You'll soon become a knowledgable WINGER.

best of luck to you and keep on posting. If we all post everything we learn, we all learn alot.
