    If you get the wiring iagram you may even be able to link it up to the stock bdm controls. The BDM one works well.

    I would be interested BDChop to hear how well it works and how you installed it like what other parts did you have to buy, can it be integrated into the BDM controller so it works like the BDM air setup. Be nice to get a response from someone that rode for a bit with no air, them added air. That system does look clean and easy to install. :up:

    There was a thread a while back saying that the all in one units were not the way to go because of replacement costs where the BD had seperate components which made repairs cheaper and pluged into the existing system.

    Here are some shots of my air ride the first one is showing you the gage

    lowered I can get my little half inch finger in there

    Raised that is 1 1/8 inch socket plus about 1/4

    last is the best I could do to get some of the compressor shots in there

    when you take the shocks off of the bike you are supposed to let the wheel travel the full range of motion and make sure that you are hitting the bump stops if it hits something else then install the supplied spacers for the bump stops. I did put the spacers in anyway!!!

    pic of the shocks and the fittings that need to be removed and re tightened before installation or they will leak

    Hoat the spacers your talking about do they go behind the bump stops?Does the air shock bleed down after setting for a while?

    I'm interested as well. I'd like to get rid of that gross gap over the 300 on my Mastiff.

    Do yourself a favor. Upgrade the fittings before you do the install
