Almost ditched the new air ride

I finally finished the rear air shocks. I found you cant control the height by pressure, so I almost went with lowered shocks. But I decided to make it work. I programmed a microprocessor to constantly monitor and display the height on an lcd.

Thanks guys, The air tank wasn't my idea. Someone makes them for $450. exchange. I just happen to have a tig welder and I'm cheap. As for the shock height, I drug one of my new extended bags thinking I was at ride height at 80 lbs, and I wasn't!! I was not about to ride to South Dakota not knowing my shock height. I still have the auto air controller I built to put on, but will wait until I get back and get the front done to put it on. It will be nice to set it and forget it. This height measuring system will be a nice addition to the auto air. See you in Sturgis!! adown

Flux cacitor,,, my degree is in electronics, not quantum physics. But I would if I could. It would make the trip to Sturgis a lot shorter. Lol

The Ride Height Monitor and Auto Air Controller are finished. I've been testing the Ride Height Monitor for almost a year, and the Auto Air Controller for about 7 months. I will get some video up on youtube or my facebook next week after Hollister.
