I'm looking to put put an after market air ride on my 2001 RK. I have the Bagger Shock on order (and paid for) but it has been 4 months. Does anyone have any good experiences with any of the other manufacturers?
Yup, I have the Arnott air system and love it! It seems like whatever type of road I'm on, with the wife or not, I can find a setting that smoothes everything out. When I get off, I drop all the air out of the system and it makes mounting and dismounting a lot easier with my old knees.
I went with Arnott due to the price, I am quite pleased with them. The compressor works fast, from full down to 2/3 way up is about 5 sec. I went with the 11 way adjustable, $1099. No idea how the other model is, I imagine its fine if you dont care about adjustability.
I asked the question about air ride on this site. Many reccommended Arnott. (Aldan not bilstien)....I found a real deal on a new set-up and bought it....I love the ride..I can NOT comment on the Legends for a touring bike, as I have not tried them. I did have the Legends air ride on my Fatboy...It was a good ride as well....Get the optional guage to see what pressure you like...
I will tell you something though try and find a good gauge with some range from 25 to 120 psi this setup is very touchy and 2 psi makes a big difference.
I bought a liquid filled gauge from LEGEND so it would fit in the place of my air temp gauge in the batwing fairing $180.00 and it's a piece of **** it's so small and the increment's are too close together to see where the hell you are at.
My gauge is mounted on the right side just below seat in front of side panel. I air up when sitting on bike. If I'm riding and it feels a little stiff or soft, I adjust accordingly. I also have the control switches mounted on left handlebar. I can make instant changes.
