I like the bagger bars as well. I called and tallked with them, the guy who answered the phone said they would be 2-3" closer. I have short arms, and find myself stretching just a bit, so this might be the ticket. Thx for the post.

ps, Bob are you the guy who bought some Ohlins for your Harley from a guy names Howard?

If they only made a set in 1 inch and black powder coated. I do not like the 1.25 inch bars. They do look good. Hard to get ram mounts to fit.

Yep. That would be me.

399 for that air compressor!! you can buy any portable 12v compressor from china mart or off of flebay for 5 bucks pull it apart and you have the exact same compressor add switch for a quarter, the hose and fittings and fuse all can be picked up from pingle for a few bucks... so for less then 20 bucks you can have the same air on command they are trying to get 399 for...

Sounds like you have an opportunity to make some money. But remember; you will need insurance, a license to sell, a shop to work in, an accountant, permits, inspections, a business plan/model, advertising, your time, and risk everything to make your venture work.

Do you still think you can sell them for $20 and warranty them? Remember; you might be selling 100 a week or more. Figure working 16-18 hours a day and probably weekends. Almost for sure; Saturday.

Just one question Sir. Have you ever had your own successful business?

I suspect you may be right, but you forgot the $$ it would take to either 1) pay someone to go get the parts and install them, or 2) pay for the tools and the classes so I could do it myself

There is no doubt you could beat the $399 price by a long shot by doing it yourself but I also doubt you could do it for $20 and be reliable through time.

I've had air shocks on both bikes and cars. My understanding was not to use air lines in garages. The reason being that the momentary peak pressure can sometimes damage the seals. You may only be going from 27psi to 40psi but you are exposing the shock to pressures that maybe as high as 200psi. For this reason I always used a hand pump. What is the peak pressure in these small pumps?

Just me being carefull.
