On my 89 GL1500, I often adjust my rear air for myself....then when riding a passenger, as Im sure we all do.
But 2 things are on my mind.
1 being the fact that my aging air system struggles to air up my ride......and to hold the air long term.
and 2, over time i notice my rear tire wearing off center. I credit this to the spring being a constant....and the air side always changing.
I recently found myself in a rare opportunity to get all mad scientist ......because I just purchased a complete, yet dead GL 1500 for parts. Im thinking of using my spare spring shock to replace my air shock......running duel springs, and no air ride.
I can find zero information on doing this, so I assume no one has?
Seems like it should work great.....on paper.....but id love some input.
A single shock is NOT able to support the bike very well alone......so while maybe alittle firm......in my mind it should make my rear much more stable......?
