How I mounted my Viar compressor and dump valve

Here is the result of my mounting. I used the bracket from Texastrendz that he offered for sale awhile back and mounted the dump valve and adjustable flow valve directly. It is a completely self contained unit now and works flawlessly. Also a shot of where I installed the switch.

That's a great place to mount it. That's a lot easier to get to than in front of the battery box where mine is. I do believe that's where I'm going to relocate mine once I fab a bracket

Good to see one of them installed on another bike. Good idea on the dump valve mounting, one piece unit.

It looks like they are. That's what I used on mine and they look the same.

Yes these are the Monroe vette air shocks. I have installed an 1/8" spacer between the shock and upper mount in order to give a little clearance for the detach passenger backrest to fit easily. I definitely agree about having the shock eyes welded all the way around instead of the factory spot welds. Thanks torqu..thevalve works great also.
