Greetings fellow Wingers! Bought my first Goldwing this week and signed up here yesterday. 1985 Limited Edition. Didn't have an owner's manual so that's been ordered online and awaiting it's arrival. Meantime, where's the most likely place to look for a rear suspension air problem? Are they prone to leak at certain areas? It sounds like the pump is working, but I can't seem to inflate the rear and have very little control at the front for that matter.Suggestions?

do yourself a favor and order some progressive air shocks and the kit to replace you 30yr old shocks

Hello and welcome to the forum.
You purchase a set of Progressive rear shocks and then you purchase the air line kit to hook it up to the Wing's on-board air compressor.

Welcome to the forum from Pa and congrats on your new Wing. Can I assume from your name that your home is Virginia? Ride safe and enjoy the site..

Welcome to GWOF vawinger. It's common for the air shocks of that vintage to be shot, that's why the suggestion by detdrbuzzard.

It sounds like the air filter on the compressor is plugged. I'm not sure where it is located on your bike, but I bet that is all you need to repair. I have a 1984 and the shocks hold air through the winter with no problems.
