STEP 1: Run the compressor to air the system up until the rear shocks stop raising the rear of the motorcycle. Air the system up till it is hard enough that the rider does not compress the suspension when they sit down.
STEP 2: Sit the rider and load you intend on carrying (passenger and luggage) on the bike. Add air to the system until the bike stops raising.
STEP 3: Release air from the system, until the shocks measure 12" from the center of the top shock bolt to the center of the bottom shock bolt or until the bike drops approximately 1". Remember when you release air, it is going to release much quicker than it will inflate, therefore, we recommend you just "tap" your release button on the handlebar control until the 1" drop is attained.
STEP 4: Once the sag is set and you have achieved the 1" drop, the rider will need to go for a ride and make MINOR air pressure adjustments to "dial" in the ride.
- We recommend starting with the rebound setting on position 3. This is the intermediate rebound setting and is usually a good place to start. Rebound is primarily a rider preference setting, and by going to a lower number, the shocks will rebound quicker and ride a bit softer. By going to a higher number the shocks will rebound slower and be a bit firmer. (Applicable to AIR-A only)
STEP 7: After a test ride, if the rider feels it is too soft, hold the button is 2-3 seconds at a time to firm the system up until the desired ride is achieved. If the rider feels it is too firm, tap the release button a couple of times until the desired ride is achieved.
NOTE: The 1" of sag applies to two-up riding as well. If the sag has been previously set for a one-up riding configuration and the weight of a passenger has been added to the bike, the rider will need to add air pressure to the system to account for the added weight of the passenger on the bike, and once again achieve the 1" of sag. The process to set sag with a passenger is the same as steps 1-7 above, with both the rider and the passenger sitting on the bike.
