Hi guys,
Bought a pair of RK take off shocks (54000036 G5H3-00) to fit up to my '06 XLL.

They work great and provide a pretty smooth ride.

However, I have been guessing at the air pressure to set them at. I have been running about 10psi single and 20psi 2-up. Just wondering if there are any RK owners out there that might know what the recommended pressures are and what the max pressure for these shocks is.

Thanks.

I will look at my service manual tonight and let you know unless someone posts the correct info before then. I run 23psi in mine solo. I weight 230

Service manual says about 10 psi for every 100 pounds of weight, I have mine at 20 psi when I'm riding solo and when the wife is riding it is at 35 psi, manual says with a rider 40-50 psi, to me that feels a little to high every bump feels real stiff.

Looks like I was running them about 50% of where they needed to be.

Thanks again for the help. :)
