80 wing rear shock warning light

Post by Wilcoy02 »



When I get over 30 mph the warning light on the tach comes on,
I checked the air pressure on the rear shocks and it was at 30 psi.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

it seems a very sensitive sensor that triggers the light. Mine does the same , I am tempted to pull the bulb :(

If I can not fix it I plan on pulling the wire to the tach.

Mine, too. Could just disconnect the sensor.

I added air to 40psi and viola the red light is gone.
