Not sure how to word this, so hopefully you can understand what I am getting at. My book tells me to run from 0-6 pounds in the front, and 28-57 npounds in the rear. My question is, on the graph on the bike, it has the 9 different boxes going up and down. The bottom box has 0-6, the next box has 6-11 pounds, and so on. Ok, lets say I want to set the pressure in the front at 4 pounds. How do I know when I have it set at 4 pounds, and not 2, 3, or 5 pounds?

Question #2, I am assuming that the compresser on my bike only holds so much air. When that air is gone, how do I fill it back up? I know this is probably a no braainer question, but I just want to be sure before I do something stupid.

Mine stores the air in the tires. I know this because the air pressure goes down every once in awhile in them and I have to fill them back up.

I just wish they would make these things automatic. You would think they could engineer something better than that.

What year and model have you got BigDaddy? There should be a switch for front/rear on the compressor control. If there are no gradations on the bar graph, 4 psa is 2/3 of six, so run the compressor switched to the front until the graph reads about 2/3 on the low section. I think there is a schrader valve on the fork as well so you can maybe put a guage on it to tell more accurately. Just remember the forks hold very little volume so every touch on the valve is going to release a bit of air.
