I usually run around 10lbs psi and never put more then 15lbs in mine. Don't use anything but a true suspension pump. A bicycle pump or the air at the gas station will blow your seals. A few years ago, I saw a guy put air in at a gas station and blew the seal on his fork. Nasty mess it was...hi does any one know what the air pressure in the front forks should be,,cant find it even in haynes..thanks
I have the Progressive mini guage air pump. Here is one on eBay just like mine. I purchased it when I had my VN750 for the rear shocks but didn't need it for the front because 1990 VN750's don't have nipples (air forks). But over the years I replaced my rear OEM shocks (with nipples) with Progressive shocks (no nipples - not air shocks) and replaced my front forks with a set from a 1986 VN750 and rebuilt them with Progressive springs. With the addition of the Nomad to my stable, I use the pump on the rear shocks on the Nomad and the front forks on the VN750.Anyone actually have the air pump designed for forks? My local shop recommends a small hand bicycle pump - the little emergency type - for the forks.
