Bought this system with the clutch side control button and expecting it tomorrow. G man showed it to me a few weeks ago and I really liked it. Out of town till first week of December so the install will have to wait. Really looking forward to it.
Any thoughts on this? Likes ? Dislikes?

As a member of the " money haters club " I like what the air ride system does. Not only will it change the look of the bike with a press of a switch but also putting me closer to the ground while backing the bike up is right up my alley.
Friend of mine has one on his bike, not the skully, but another brand and have always liked his but the price tag on his was more than double of the skully. Don't hate money that much!
I haven't heard of any reviews on this system Lee , lifetime warranty is outstanding, other than that we shall see.

I can't wait to see it and help with the install.

I did find a company in Muskegon that sells one for about $400-$500 but it only drops 3" not 5". So if I like what it does on your bike Moe, I too will be buying a setup. I thank you for trying it first. I appreciate the jump start!

I like the adjusting per the road conditions... and lowering it even more for backing up.

We shall see.

But consider this... this Skully setup is cheaper than progressives... anybody looking to buy something.

Ended up installing this Skully system a couple weeks back and I'm happy to say that it functions just as I had hoped it would. Absolutely awesome system. Love the way I can change the bikes stance and ride weather sitting still or on the road. I installed my control switch on the clutch housing so it is very convenient and effortless to get to.
Here's a pic of the system fully inflated and one fully deflate ... 5" range of travel witch lifts very quickly and lowers even faster. Gives a great ride too. Diggin this big time.

How is it to back up the bike when it's down?

How long was the install?

Totally different bike backing it up. Much easier. Lower to the ground gives way better control, no doubt about it.
Install for me was around 4 hours. Now take into consideration that this was the first install I've done so you know how that plays out, slow and cautious. Easy install looking back really. Now that the learning curve is out of the way , I would be able to install this in half the time, couple hours maybe less.

Yeah that's all about what I would have expected.

Yeah, I am thinking about picking this up over the winter and I would get that black button that mounts on the handlebars like what you got Moe...
Looks sweet! and I remember sitting on that bike that they had at their booth with this set up when we were in Milwaukee in Sept.
Thanks for your feedback on this :dthumb:

I just got a message from Rodney at Skully on FB....they are having a special going on this month(ends Dec.31st)
Call in and order a Air Ride Kit and he will throw in the $80 handlebar button for Free....but you have to call in the order. He said if you order online, it will charge you...I'm thinking about ordering next week with the Black Handlebar Button ...so $599.99 and $35 shipping.....$634.99 :rockwoot:

Do you know if it comes with the toggle as well, when you order the handlebar switch? Just in case...

Mofos...!! :lol: Awesome deal right there. If you're going to buy this system, now is the time for sure. The toggle does come with the kit G but make sure you remind him to throw it in the box when you talk with him. Don't want not to get it simply because you're doing the handlebar switch.
Here's a pic...

Thanks gents... I spoke to him and he is going to put in both switches as part of the deal. Already on order.

Moe you got the part numbers for your RAM mount setup? Looks like the handlebar/control mount. What size arm length did you get?

You bet G.... I actually ordered the 6" long arm socket with the Camera adapter for my GoPro from GPS city this morning. This will allow me to use the Ram mount for the GoPro which will clear the left side of the fairing just at the windshield side start point . Very cool product really.
