We at Arnott Incorporated are proud to offer a high quality product at the industry’s most competitive pricing. Thank you for your confidence in us and our product.

Proper installation is essential to experience and appreciate the benefits of this system. Please take a moment to review these installation instructions before you begin to install these components on your motorcycle. The removal and installation of air suspension products should only be performed by a fully qualified, ASE Certified, professional.

It is equally important to be aware of all necessary safety measures while installing your new Air Suspension System. This includes proper lifting and immobilizing of the motorcycle and isolation of any stored energy to prevent personal injury or property damage.

"Elevate Your Ride."

WARNING: DO NOT inflate the air suspension system until it is installed. Inflation of the air suspension system before both ends are supported by the motorcycle’s frame and/or appropriate suspension components may result in serious personal injury and/or damage to the air suspension system. The maximum recommended air spring inflation pressure is 200 psi.

Arnott Industries® is committed to the quality of its products.

GENERAL INFORMATION:

Reading this manual signifies your agreement to the terms of the general release, waiver of liability, and hold harmless agreement, the full text of which is available at www.arnottinc.com

Not to be stored below 5°F (-15°C) or above 122°F (50°C).

Avoid damage to air lines and electrical components.

Removal and installation is only to be performed by fully qualified personnel.

CAUTION: Damage to the motorcycle and air suspension system can be incurred if work is carried out in a manner other than specified in the instructions or in a different sequence.

Each owner or installer is unique, therefore installation of this system can be done many different ways. The mounting locations of the compressor and inflation switch are suggestions by our engineers. If proper wiring guidelines and instructions are followed, relocation of the compressor or switch will neither affect the system operation nor void your warranty.

Adjust air shock pressure as required for desired ride quality to maximize the benefits of your system. Excess pressure will result in a firmer ride, too little pressure will allow the suspension to bottom out.

WARNING: To avoid the possibility of short circuits while working with electric components consult your owner's manual on how to disconnect your battery.

WARNING: Refer to the Owner’s Manual for the bike and instructions for the motorcycle lift for all correct lifting procedures. It is also recommended that you protect any chrome or painted surfaces that may be damaged during lifting, removal or installation process.

Use a solid, level surface to position the bike on a motorcycle lift and use all recommended safety techniques. Lift the bike so the rear wheel is just slightly off the ground.

1. remove the left and right side covers, then remove both saddle bags. ensure that all electrical connections are disconnected if applicable. (FIGURES 1, 2, 3, 4)

23. On rebound adjustable shocks, the rebound damping force can be increased or decreased to suit the rider’s preference. Increasing the rebound damping will slow the speed at which the shock extends after it is compressed. This is usually desirable when running higher air pressures than normal for a single rider. For example, riding 1 up would require lower air pressure and less rebound damping than riding 2 up with a fully loaded motorcycle. The increased air pressure is trying to extend the shock faster. This can lead to an uncontrolled bouncy feeling in the rear of the motorcycle. Increasing the rebound damping will help slow down the extension and make a more controlled feeling. (FIGURES 60, 61)
