Default Source for air pump shock

So I'm told by a few just a bicycle pump is fine. You guys have a fav brand/model you like for adjusting the rear shock? Might be a really short thread. I dunno?

I don't know who sells shocks for air pumps, but there are many sources for an air pump for your shock. Here's one and the first one has a nice price and the right pressure range.

That'll work. Thanks! I suspected it'd be a quick thread.

I went the local bicycle shop. They came out and looked at my Victory and the fitting. Sold me a nice compact pump with a built-in gauge. About 30 bucks.

If you go with a bicycle pump, I'd make sure it is a bicycle shock pump as opposed to a bicycle tire pump. The shock pumps have a smaller chamber to make fine adjustments easier and the valve connection is also designed so that it doesn't bleed air when it is disconnected. The air volume inside the shock is so small that when you disconnect a typical tire style pump, that quick pffft as you're removing the chuck will throw off your setting.

That being said, there are plenty of motorcycle branded shock pumps out there at a reasonable price. Just make sure you get one with the correct pressure range indicated on the gauge.

I bought a bicycle pump from wall mart. Works fine and doesn't cost much, i use a tire pressure gauge to check pressure, havn't had a problem with loosing pressure when removing pump from fitting.
