Description
 

The very best in custom air ride motorcycle suspension kits by Xotic Customs:

  • 5" of total travel (4" below stock and 1" above on typical application)
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty
  • Bolts on to any stock Harley with side mount rear suspension (does NOT fit Softails)
  • Onboard compressor and dump valve lets you adjust to any ride height or stiffness on the fly
  • All components are waterproof
  • Available with both 5/32" and 1/4" air lines
  • The normal shocks measure 14” extended and 9.25” deflated
  • The X-Series shocks measure 13” extended and 9.25” deflated
Looking to make your ride stand out above the rest? Look no further! The Taildragger Air Ride Suspension Lowering Kit by Xotic Customs is exactly what you need. With nearly 5 inches (4 inches for X-Series) of total travel you can drop it down low to give your motorcycle that low aggressive look, or just make it easier to maneuver around the garage or parking. Use the onboard compressor to air your suspension part way up for the most comfortable ride you've ever experienced or bump them all the way up for that stiff sporty suspension great for aggressive riding.

The X-Series do not extend as far which allows for better clearance for some setups. Also the internal components of the X-Series make it less likely that you'll ever have a pressure leak.

NOTE: 1/4" lines allow for slightly faster raising and lowering when running directly from the compressor, but the lines are thicker making them less flexible and harder to install. Unless you are specifically looking for 1/4" lines we highly recommend going with the 5/32" lines. If you do decide to order 1/4" lines please allow for up to 2 weeks additional lead time.

This kit comes with the following:

  1. Taildragger Air Ride Shocks x 2
  2. Compressor which can be mounted to your bike and runs off your battery
  3. Switch to lower or raise your shocks
  4. Dump valve to release air from the system
  5. Grade 8 replacement mounting hardware
  6. All necessary wiring and air lines

NOTE: The optional air tank for the Harley-Davidson Touring models does not work with some of the aftermarket Vance & Hines slip-ons. If you need a tank that works with V&H's slip-on's please contact us as we do custom make these.

Although most stock Harley and Indian motorcycles should be able to ride with this system throughout the full range, you should check for any clearance issues before doing so to avoid any possible damage to your bike.

Good kit once fitted April 27, 2017
Reviewer: Andrew Pryce from Sattahip, Chon Buri Thailand  
Before I speak about the issues I had with the kit while fitting it I have to say air ride is the way to go, great riding experience and the kit does work very well once fitted.

The issues I had with the kit I bought - The bolt set that was included in the kit for mounting the rear shocks was incorrect. The bolt threads were different and too short, I used the original bolts but had to cut down the edges of the rubber mounts on either end of the shocks. I would have had the same issue if I was able to use the new bolts that had been sent with the kit.

As mentioned before I am happy with the end result, however, the correct equipment needs to be supplied in each kit to avoid unhappy customers in the future.
