1- Buy shocks, longer bolts, dump valve, compressor, and CVO switch.

2- On shocks drill out top hole to .5", trim lower sleeve to match bushing, and add sleeve in lower bushing to reduce id to .5".

3- Mount Shocks, run lines, mount compressor and valve, wire switch.

Done....

There are over 1100 members registered, I am sure you could do the install over a few beers with one of them.

Where do you live?

that is actually an awesome idea for bill! set up a sticky and if guys have a trailer or such we can post where we live with contact info in case anyone is in a close enough area to help instead of calling for a tow truck! hell i'm in i've got a 12x6 trailer and i stop for any bike thats on the side of the road to lend a hand if i can! can't tell how many times i've given guys rides home because their bikes are broke down.

If I were back on the farm, I'd shoot over and get ya on the right path. Maybe I'll get back to the motherland in another year or 2.

I'm not the most mechanically inclined and I got it together pretty easily. I'm sure you can get it figured out if you sift through the Air Ride 101 thread.

I think thats my main issue! There is like 25 different conversations to go thru to get there! Haha of think I'll start getting the materials together and start once it gets a little colder we are losing riding days fast...this week a couple days are only in the 50s for the high

I think the toughest part of the whole job was figuring out exactly where to fit my compressor, solenoid, and switch. I'm going to do the front this winter once I figure out what wheel I'll be putting up there. Hard to pick between the 23", 26", and a fat 18".
