Smile Air Shock Hose extension kit - Convenient and easy Installation

I sometimes ride with GF as passenger and I did not like repeatedly taking off side cover to change suspension shock psi and risking breaking one of the the plastic nubs that hold the side cover on. I had an air shock hose extension connection rated to 200+ psi made for me by a commercial hose manufacturing business with so that I could move it out from behind the side cover to access easily. Fits exactly and it is
Convenient, Quick and Easy to use. Made in America. Includes how to install instructions and 2 tie wraps.
Made some more in case anyone is interested in buying one - Posted in Marketplace section.

Victory should have relocated the fill valve, especially once they started making the Tour, which has both saddlebag guards and passenger foot-board supports less than an inch away from, and in the way of removing, the right side cover.

There were some variations of this mod started by MTVic about four months ago -- see https://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=59042 , which wound up on the left side -- and me -- see my write-up at http://www.billanddot.com/shock-valve-relocation.html , which wound up similar to your work, except that I drilled through the side cover and added a new Schrader valve.

In any case, nicely done.

Cheers,

Bill P.
