I have bought myself a bit of a project bike and have come unstuck on the suspension. Its a 1988 GT550 with air suspension. I cannot seem to get any air into the suspenion unit. I am using a small footpump and know the right pressures, but the air just doesn't seem to stay in there when I take the pump nozzle off.
So, a couple of questions -
1. I think the unit itself is knackered. I'm damned if I can find replacement units. Does anyone know where to find them? I've tried ebay but no joy.
2. Can these air suspension units be replaced with standard spring shocks? If so, does anyone know what type would work?
Many thanks all - any help greatly appreciated!
