Do all Road Kings come with air-ride?

I just picked up an '01 RK; there's a sticker on the inside of the saddlebag that notes air pressure. I don't know if this has air-ride or if it is equipped with it. How can I tell?
Stupid question?

Air shocks are stock.

If you look at the rear shocks, you can see air hoses going to them if the bike still has the stock shocks. To inflate them, use a HD (low pressure) air pump. The access is behind the right saddlebag.

Mine were OK for the first few years, took them off and put on progressives...

It doesn't look like there are any hoses coming from the shocks. Maybe it was removed.

Most people upgrade shocks so no more air to worry with. You probably have progressive shocks or some other aftermarket.

quick correction on RKC's post...the fill valve on my 04 is behind the left saddlebag. replacing them with the progressives is very popular so if you dont see any hoses that's probably where you're at.

You're correct about your '04. You're wrong about an '01. RKC is correct about the '01, it's on the right side behind the saddlebag. So is my '02. Not sure about 03's.
