Q Why should I
check the air in my suspension?
A All H-D air-adjustable suspensions need to
be checked before riding as too much or too
little pressure will cause a harsh ride or
bottoming out of the rear shocks. Also any
leakage, no matter how small, will reduce
ride quality. Outside temperature also
affects pressure by 10 psi or more. Riding
“two-up” vs. riding “solo” requires as much
as 20-30 psi difference in pressure. We
provide a handy, stick-on label for you to
enter your three most important psi
settings: Solo, Two-Up, and Maximum
pressure. When these pressures are
established, just push the button, read the
pressure, and then adjust, if needed.
Q Are the original Showa shocks that come on
my bike good shocks or should I buy
aftermarket shocks for a better ride?
A The original OEM shock absorbers are great
shocks when properly inflated and will give
good service with little or no problems for
the life of the bike. However, all H-D
systems leak down over time and need to be
checked. They also must be adjusted for the
loads being carried; i.e., “solo” or
“two-up” with luggage. All non-air
adjustable shocks are going to be perfect
for only one load and will need to be
adjusted for optimum performance at
Q How difficult is the installation?
A Most installations take less than 10
Q Will pressure spikes from large bumps
destroy the gauge?
A No, the gauge is protected with the
push-to-check feature. There is no pressure
going to the gauge until the button is
Q Will it fit my bike?
A Yes, we have four models. For bikes with
tour packs, we mount to the license plate.
For the non-tour pack bikes, we mount to the
frame on the right side between the saddle
bag and the fender.
Q Can I add air at the gauge instead of the
original location behind my saddle bag?
A Yes, we supply an additional air-fill
valve at the gauge for easy access for
filling or releasing air.
Q Do I modify my original air system?
A The EZ-Air™ system ties into the original
H-D system without removing any part of what
comes on your bike. It can easily be removed
and installed on another bike also.
Q Do I need special wrenches or skills to
install the air lines to my system?
A No, the air lines are cut to length and
push into the supplied fittings. We 100%
leak-test all fittings, gauges, and valves
as components and the completed assemblies.
Q Will my system leak down with the EZ-Air™
management system installed?
A As most (if not all) original systems leak
down with time, this is still going to
happen. Because we leak-test every
component, there should not be an increase
in air leakage. In other words, if your
system currently loses 10 psi over 2-3
months, it most likely will continue to leak
down at this rate. It is just a lot easier
to monitor and adjust with the EZ-Air™
