    Cool Skully Customs Air Ride

    Did my Skully's Air Ride install today with the help of Moe....Thanks again Moe for stopping by to give me a hand. Moe already did this install and there are a few things that Rodney explained to him to do, which helped me out for my install!
    I am really happy with this mod!! looks sweet slammed down!
    I didn't get a chance to ride the bike to check it out because it started raining, but listening to how Moe likes his...I think this will be awesome for riding and when the bike is loaded down with camping gear, or riding 2 up!

    Here are a few pics that I took.....but looks way better in person

    The compressor hides nicely behind the saddlebag



    Aired all the way up....




    Slammed all the way down...




    Black Handlebar switch to control it

    Looks cool. What is the overall reason for an air ride system to be installed? Is it to improve riding?

    Multiple reasons...

    For short people like me, it eases backing up.

    Otherwise you can control the ride quality. So if the road is bumpy... keep less air in it and it's soft. Bottom out, add some air, still bottoming out... add more air. Going over a speed bump... pump it up. Parked... slam that shit.

    Right on Dave, bike looks awesome and functions nicely!! Outside of us having to run up to AutoZone for a couple of longer bolts for the muffler support bracket, install went nice and smooth! Test it out this week if you get a minute. I'm gonna try to get out myself as well.
