Arnott air-ride questions?

Hi! I just ordered a complete set of arnott shocks for my NRS. My questions about the shocks is can you lower and rise the shocks when you have say for example your wife sitting on the bike in the rear?

I was advised away from an air-ride system on my bike because they have been known to lose pressure whilst riding?

Is it complicated to install the shocks with all the hardware that comes with the kit? How many hours can i count with?

This is a simple system to install follow the instructions. I even modified the install by installing everything in the air box. You see I use the little storage pocket under my fuse box and inbetween the fuel tank to store my magnum disk lock and a pen and pad, just incase i ever need a pen and pad LOL see pics

It may even pay to tig weld the mounting bracket before you install it. see my post..

Other than that you will enjoy the system.

Filter??? must be a new thing, mine just has a little screw to adjust the flow rate.

you had a flow adjuster. i asked for that but the guy at arnott's sayd they took it out for costs ...and everybody seemd to want it to drop fast... well, not me

I took a leftover piece of tubing and fixed that in the blowoff outlet. routed it to the louve upfront. molt it with a lighter and made a pince with a plier leaving a small hole... now i have a nice audible HISSSSSS....

Go with platinum air ride if your loosing air while your riding...they store the air in the shock and never loose air! Best on the market!

I have no problems raising to adjust for more load on the fly. Also, I have had no problems with air escaping while I ride. Occasionally, it the bike is in the garage for along period of time, the shock will be airless.

Speed doesn't matter. You can raise or lower any time
