Enhanced Smooth Ride Air Suspension Kits for Touring PARTS AND ACCESSORIES Merritt Island, Florida based Arnott Motorcycle Air Suspension has introduced two new, enhanced, Smooth Ride kits for ‘90-’08 and ‘09-present Touring models that feature a thicker monotube shock than provided in previous versions. A larger multi-ply Goodyear air spring holds more air - providing additional adjustability and greater comfort; an aluminum cover protects the air spring. Operated via an onboard VIAIR high output compressor and micro-toggle or optional handlebar inflation switch, Arnott says the kits offer more than 3.10 inches of travel (13 inch extended, 9.90 inch collapsed). At the core of the system are the two customvalved 13” nitrogen charged, monotube shocks with an Internal Floating Piston (IFP) that separates the gas from the oil, eliminating oil foaming and cavitation - “resulting in a better ride and less damage.” Using a patent-pending design, “Arnott adds a rugged Goodyear air spring to allow the rider the flexibility of setting the height of their rear suspension based on their weight, size, road conditions, load and riding preference. “Arnott pairs the shocks with a small but powerful compressor, custom-designed application specific mounting bracket, and air distribution valve block which includes a muffler to control how fast air is released.” Arnott also says it uses VOSS airline fittings, nylon airline tubing, a protective nylon split loom and fused wiring harness and relay assembly. Each kit includes everything needed for a “fast and flawless installation” including user manual, fused wiring harness and relay assembly, all necessary tubing, cable ties, fittings, bolt covers, protective aluminum covers and mounting accessories. Using aircraft-quality billet aluminum, each shock is backed by Arnott’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Christian Mehlhorn, owner of ABM/WUNDERKIND, says that “a conversion of the rear fender usually requires new, reliably accurate struts to give the fender stability. Then the challenge to place indicators and the rear light where they look great and work well, with the cables routed as discreetly as possible. “We have done all that for you. With nothing to cut or weld, this is a complete conversion kit, right down to the high-grade E-tested LED unit that is seamlessly integrated in to the design at the top of the strut, adjacent to the fender for maximum visibility and a great, clean fully functional look.” The M6 thread on the taillight housing www.AMDchampionship.com allows attachment to the fender without visible screw heads; the housing and strut itself can be rotated for different angles and a single M8 thread screw secures the strut securely to the rear swingarm. The struts are black plastic coated for durability with the wiring running internally. The kits ship with all necessary hardware.
