First off unless your looking at changing oil weight I would not even bother until you get a seal leak - 80-100k is a good number.
The units are sealed and really do not need the over maintenance most owners put them through. In general it does more damage than good.
The only difference in regards to the forks on an air bag is two yellow impact sensors. Everything else is the same.I have Fred's DVD's and the Honda shop manual so that should help, but there's no mention of how an airbag model would differ, if it does differ.
I had Progressive springs in my last bike so I was going to switch out the OEM fork springs with Progressive's. Are the ones from Race Tech better?
The first thing to do on a bagger is to disconnect the battery!Are there any specific precautions or procedures that should be taken before changing the fork oil on an 08 airbag model? It's the first time I've attempted this maintenance and I'm open to any advice. Thank you.
RaceTech offers straight rate wound springs, Progressive offers progressive wound rate springs.I had Progressive springs in my last bike so I was going to switch out the OEM fork springs with Progressive's.
