Default air suspension link pipe

I have fournales shocks on my chop and was wondering if its possible to get a link pipe made or purchase one so that I can adjust the ride height from one point and get both shocks the same

needs to handle 300psi

any hydraulic shop should be able to make you one up (unfortunately you ain't in birmingham so i can't take ya round to the one i know) your possible problem will be the fork caps unless you can access elbows/T-piece ...

check out the air balance pipe on 1100 Goldwings for connectors, one side is just a male thread, the other end has a free turning female connector which screws onto the adaptor in the fork cap (dunno what pressure it's likely to handle tho)....

300psi seems a touch high, the rear shocks on my Wing i think top out at 56-58psi, front forks are 14 -21psi

Pneumatic main suspension attached to the front fitting, with 25 bars internal pressure.
Pneumatic extension spring with level ride fitting (internal pressure range from 12 to 30 bars, in order to lower the motorbike's rear end).

in my book that makes about 450psi!!!! more than I had thoguht

however the setting Im using is 320ish psi

damned pain in the butt to inflate and get right

We're just gonna guess ain't we, it's expensive kit to fuck up.
I'd e-mail 'em and ask, they seem to be quite accomodating putting up an info address an all, and they seem to speak english.

DOH didnt even think of asking them LOL

just seems like common senseto link them and that way not have one with more or less and therefore doing differing levels of work

they a pain in the jacksee anyway as you alter the pressure in one end it alters the pressure in the other as well, the proper stirrup pump is screw on valve, but you cant get the valve off fast engouh without all the damned air coming out!!!!

and yes bloody expensive

but the plan was to buy decent parts to build this chop, then got largeish collection of parts to put towards the harley chop when I get the money for a decent 1340 running gear etc
