Anyone doing Air Forks?

I have a basket case 750 Spectre that has air forks on the front and air shocks on the rear. Anyone experiment with something like this on our VN's? I like the suspension on our forks, but it's nice to adjust the load range so easy with air.

The A1-A4's (1985-1988) had air assisted forks.

I know mine can be adjusted. I don't know how much air to put in them though. I think that they only had the air adjustment for the first few years.

Funny you should say that. I was just looking at the pressure range. 0 - 7.1 PSI. Since this would be a small space to pressurize, I'd recommend using a hand pump like what is used for the rear shocks. I know Progressive makes them.

There are a set of air forks from a 1985 or 1986 VN750 on ebay right now with no bids. It's in Canada.
