Stock air shocks

Ok, new to the forum and new to the road glide. I love my bike 2012 FLTRX however I hate the shocks that are on it. I have to constantly keep adding air because they keep loosing air. I have to add air about once every week or two. Does anybody else have these issues with their bikes?

Question Doesn't sound right.

I don't check mine as often as I should, 2011 FLTRX, but whenever I do I think they're about where I left them.
Have you checked the fittings to make sure they're all tight?
I'm sure you've heard this before but it bares repeating, take it to the dealer. There's a two year warranty for this kinda stuff.
Good luck!

I agree with HSP... Mine pretty much stay where I put them pressure-wise. I'm betting on a slow leak.

14,000 miles and almost a year and I have maybe added air to the shocks 3 times and it is only a few psi when I do. Your problem may be as simple as needing to re-seat the air lines by pushing them into the fittings further.

Welcome, congrats on your new ride. As mentioned, checking & re-seating your air-line should fix your leak.

Had same problem with my 11 RGU from day one. Mine would not hold for 24 hours. After second trip to dealer I told them fix it or replace the entire system. After that no problem and now only check 2-3 times a year and add 5 to 10 lbs maybe twice. They found a pinch point in the air line under the seat and frame.
