on board air compressor change

Post by fred1diver »



hey everyone, how difficult is it to change the compressor, mine works to inflate the rear suspension but when I try to inflate the front, it blows a fuse, I've found a replacement for it.

last summer someone told me to try without the solenoid and it did the same, so it's not a solenoid problem (I think)

waiting on some nice weather to work on her.

ok, so I changed the solenoid and the air cylinder (not sure about the right name) and it still does the same thing, blows a fuse when trying to add air to the front forks, works great in the back, inflate and deflate, but the front I can only deflate, the fuse in rather an important one it also controls the speedometer and the gauges, don't know where else to look, the compressor works fine, I even tried it without the hoses connected in case it was a blockage in the lines, same results, help me out please
