All the testing is done and I just added this kit to the store. :bigthumbsup:
http://directlineparts.com/product.asp?pid=6228&str=290&ID=722872336

There were a couple of issues that needed to be worked out and tested and I can say with great confidence that everything is good to go now. :doorag:

I really got to play with this kit a bunch on this last trip and it really makes for a much smoother ride and I was able to adjust for road condition's on the fly. On one trip I got into one of those real bouncy roads and was able to just add a little more air and take all of the bounce out of the road. This is going to be a great setup for those who ride two up too, you can set it for solo or for riding with a passenger without having to make adjustments like a stock shock. The best part is pulling up to park the bike and then slamming it all the way down :evil: people love that. :doorag: :super:

Lamonster,


Care to estimate the "hassle-factor"/time committment for the install?

Looks pretty cool. I'm most enticed by the on-the-fly ride adjustment for two-up riding, and getting the ass end up HIGHER to avoid peg dragging.

Lamont,
I'm curious how hard was it to hide all the pumps/compressors, etc.? Obviously there aren't places to put them designed into the bike so where did you hide them? Thanks! :bigthumbsup: :doorag:

Install was pretty easy, there is a nice place for the valve and the pump. Much easyer than on my VTX. :bigthumbsup: :doorag: :super:

I like it Lamonster, but I have a quick question for you. Whats the difference between...... say a lowrider cars hydraulics system and yours. I noticed that the lowrider cars can raise much faster?

Small air pump stock battery, vs large hydraulic pump and lots of batteries. ;)
