1. Refer to the Service Manual and follow the instructions given to remove the seat and disconnect the battery cables, negative cable first. 2. Raise the rear end of the motorcycle so that the rear wheel is just off the ground. Support the motorcycle with suitable blocking under the frame. NOTE Retain the original fasteners for installation of new shocks. 3. Remove the saddlebags from the motorcycle. See the Touring model’s Owner’s Manual for saddlebag removal. 4. Fasten the air pump, part number 54630-03A to the rear air-suspension adjustment valve on the motorcycle. See the Touring model’s owner’s manual for valve location. Add 3-5 psi to clear the line but do NOT exceed 50 psi. 5. Using the pressure-relief valve located below the gauge on the pump, release the air pressure from the rear sus- pension. Failure to relieve air pressure from the rear suspension could cause injury during shock-absorber removal. Use caution when bleeding air from the suspension. Moisture combined with lubricant may leak on to the rear wheel, tire, and/or brake components and adversely affect traction, which could result in death or serious injury. (00084a) 6. See Figure 1 and Figure 2. Remove the air hoses from the shock absorber air-hose fittings. NOTE Press the plastic collar down on the air-hose fitting to remove and install the air hose. 7. Remove the air hose fittings from the shock absorbers. Save the fittings for installation on the new shocks. NOTE Air-suspension shock absorbers are oil filled and must be kept upright at all times to prevent oil leakage. 8. Remove the lower mounting bolts and washers from the shock absorbers
