I want to add pressure to the shocks as I like running my bikes with stiff suspensions.
I understand the bike needs to get the rear wheel off the ground to add air, but how do people do this without some special equipment? Is there some secret to getting the read wheel airborn?
I tried adding air to the left rear shock tonight with the bike on the ground and it would lose the pressure to near zero the minute I took the nozzle away every time.
I think thats because the bikes weight is pressuring the shock and it is stressed so loses the air quickly? I did manage to get it to hold 20psi for now but I think I want to run these at 55, understanding from the manual that 73 psi is topped out.
What do I need to be able to do this without going to the dealer, and how to hell would you do this on the road on a trip?
Thanks in advance
