    I am needing to know where I can purchase the extension for the shock hose. Rather than removing the cover the extension makes it easier to fill from the outside. It is a braided hose.
    Thanks, Doug

    Here's the one I bought. The bracket comes off and I used a much smaller one to mount to one of the bolts holding the fuse block so it just barely pokes out to use without having to pull that side cover or burn my hands.

    That is exactly what I bought and exactly where I bolted it. It sticks out in front of the left side panel. Chrome cap so it looks fine. Nice to have. Oh yeh, I made my own bracket.

    I used the same extension but rerouted it it the right side of the bike, to the top front of the right saddlebag. Now it is very easy to adjust the air pressure.

    I ordered one of those too, but was absolutely impossible to keep it from leaking. How did y’all stop it from leaking, or did I just get a bad one?

    I took the nut off that held the air valve to the bike. I put the extension on and routed it carefully to the right side. I tightened the extension to the valve to the shock after taking out the little valve inside the air valve. I then made a little mount out of metal, painted it black and mounted it to the right side of the bike and engine. I attached it to the case just in front of the side cover. The bolt is plenty long so the little mount that you made. I do get a little seepage but nothing drastic. I check it at least one a week and put some air in. If you have any questions or want a picture give me a call at 641.425.9584

    I drilled a hole in the cover and screwed a chrome valve extension on it. :)
