Air Filter Missing

Never mind. Why Kawie put the air filter on the left side while I was looking on the right side is beyond me. I'll ask another stupid question on how to add air to the rear shocks without lifting the Rear wheel some other time.

I've done it both ways and checked the air in the shocks with the wheel on the ground. There was only a 1 or 2 pound difference doing it either way.

If you don't like either of the answers above just put a bike jack under it, lift the bike until the rear wheel is just off the ground and add air to your heart's content.

Technically, it is on the right hand side if sitting on the bike.

I'm gone!

The 1700 Nomad has the filter on the left side but the right side looks to be part of the air box set-up.

Thanks for the help.

I have the Progressive Air Pump. I have checked shock pressure with the bike sitting on the side stand and with the bike suspended with the wheel off the floor. Pressure readings were much the same. Checked this on a 1600 Nomad and 1700 Voyager.

Yeah, I know. I saw your username and thought you were talking about the 900.
