I know this is a how long is a piece of string question but, what is the normal air pressure in the rear shockers, and what is the max they will take before damage would occur?
My trike tends to bottom out, my current shocks need replacing because they won't hold air and if I were to replace them I would not like to damage them by over pressuring them.

Normal high would be about 56 lbs for the rear but according to the chart for the 85 aspy you can go higher

The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.

Rebuilding the shocks is another option... Possibly the oil has leaked out of yours... Replacing the seals is pretty easy to do... You will need to either purchase or make a shock compressor to do the job, but other than that it is really not a though job...

See the attachment to this post for more info on it...

Cheers Ed, that's another option, I've been looking at secondhand shockers but they could be as bad as mine, as the saying goes, (Better the devil you know).
Thanks once again though. :-bd
