Default where is the "marketplace" section? (air shock)

Searched archive for threads addressing the air shock (CCT). Was looking at threads... somebody made up a airline extension and routed it forward so the fitting was accessible without removing the side cover. Anybody have experience with relocating the schrader valve connection. How long of hose? I've got the little Fox hand pump. Seems it takes about 1740 (+/-) strokes to make a measurable difference in pressure. Yesterday I purchased a 12 volt mini air pump with built in gauge - 100 psi max pressure - to see if that works better than the hand pump. Will experiment later today.

Thoughts and opinions requested. Thanks. Dennis

It sounds like something is either wrong with your pump or it isn't getting a good connection to the valve. The shocks pump up quick with the hand pump usually.

The marketplace is called the "classifieds". You can see the link at the top left of the Active Topics page. Probably other pages too.

Took my hand pump to three different bicycle shops yesterday. I asked each one to test my pump. They all hooked it to a bike with air shock (much smaller volume). They said the pump works as designed. I don't have any other motorcycle air shock to compare pump function so I don't know what "normal" function is when it comes to inflating the Vic shock with hand pump. Thanks for the feedback.

I had the same problem you have. I had the $70 vic pump and I would pump that thing 20 times and would only get about 5 psi out of it and then I would lose that 5 psi unscrewing it from the valve. Used my sons $4 bicycle pump and 2 or 3 pumps and Im up to 45 psi. Works great and I took the vic pump back to the dealer. Im actually glad it didnt work.

Luvmyride did that mod, looks good and is actually quite handy without having to remove the side cover every time.

Question

I guess I need a lesson on how to contact folks on here. How do you find member names or alias so one can send a PM.

I tested the 12v mini air compressor on a bicycle tire. It works quite well. 0 to 50 psi in about a minute +/- for that amount of volume.

A couple days before; when using the Fox pump, and after considerable effort, the gauge would read about 25-30 . I put a different dial gauge with 10" hose (?) and would read about 50. I didn't really know what the pressure was. Before I stuck the 12v mini on there I checked the pressure with the simple old school pencil style gauge. It reads 60. Two or three quick checks each read 60. I'm leaving it as is for now. Will check the pressure again in a week or so.

if they respond on the site you can click on their names otherwise you'll probably have to ask the site administrator how to contact them.

Click on the persons name and choose "Send a private message to xxxxx".

You can also go into messaging via UserCP and type the persons forum name in to the "To" section. It must be spelled correctly and is case sensitive.
