  • Shock PSI

    I have a friend that just purchased a mint looking 88 1500. He wants to know how much air pressure should be run on the rear shocks. Says combined weight for both riders is 400 LB's.
    Thanks Stanley

    When I had a 1500 I think I ran 10/12 pounds 1-Up and 15 to 25 pounds with 2-up and trailer........I think.

      I think the max for the stock shocks is 57PSI. When 2-up on the 97 1500 I had (combined rider+passenger weight about 450lbs), we ran over 60PSI. Then, I upgraded to progressive 416 rear shocks, which max out at 100PSI, and usually ran about 70-80psi when riding 2-up.
