    Default Question for Accuride System owners

    I would like to know how the system is working for you, particularly 2015 and newer models.

    If you do not own a Roadsmith with the Accuride System, please do not respond. I need first-hand information.

    Thanks!

    Mike,

    I have a 2010 Goldwing (Roadsmith) with the Accuride system and now that you mentioned this, to be truthful, I have no idea if it's even working or what it's supposed to be doing??

    i'm going to call my installer this morning, and ask him, what It's purpose is, and if he's actually even installed this system.... I have never even heard any sounds like it's working??

    I have not had any problems, since receiving, and riding my trike (2nd season here).... BUT THANK YOU, cause "maybe" it's working cause my trike seams to be ok, BUT would I even know the difference, if it wasn't installed in the first place...Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ?????????????

    Thank you!

    Ronnie

    Interesting. First, look to see if you have air shocks with a black airline attached at the upper end .

    Two, watch the video on RS site under "options" >Accuride System. It shows how it works and there is no doubt when the compressor kicks on.

    Three, if you have them, check the fuse which on mine is located near the battery and runs from the accessory port in the fuse box. I believe it is a five amp fuse.

    Were the options not listed on your buyers order Ronnie?

    Once you have determined you do have Accuride, one way you can check to see if it is working is to turn your ignition on but dont crank it and you and your wife both get on it, that should activate the system.

    If you find that you do have it and both of you mount it and it does not power on the compressor, check the fuse. If that is good then the ride height sensor may need to be adjusted or replaced.

    For tech support, call Mark at Roadsmith, he is the Gold Wing expert.

    Note: After you turn the ignition on there is a 20 second delay before the compressor comes on. that keeps the compressor from coming on instantly at every little change. Thanks for chiming in Papa Zook.

    I would think the accuride would give a much smoother ride being 'air shocks' in lieu of coil over's. Kinda wish I had gotten the option now, believe the wife and I would have been way more satisfied with the ride quality. Think an install now would be over $lK, can't go there. If memory serves, that was the information I got from the 'trike shop' in Daytona when they were in business.

    The air adjusts the preload only and simply makes it easier to change the preload due to varying loads. The ride itself, IMO, is solely dependent on the shock.

    You have either the straight coil over shocks with manual adjustment on the shock itself, OR, you have the coil over shock with the adjustable preload from the dash.

    If you have the adjustable preload, remember you can also adjust preload on the shock so you might want to check where the shock is set. You have two preload adjustments available and you might need to balance the two out, i.e., set shock to minimum and used dash control to adjust the preload you need. Play with it and see it you can change to better suit your needs.

    I'm surprised at your comment about the ride because most RS owners love the ride.
