Riding a motorcycle brings a sense of calm and ease to each rider’s mind and body, similar to meditation. To continue this excitement and increase ride quality, enthusiasts often add air suspension to their motorcycle systems.
Air suspension modifications utilize inflatable air springs and air compressors that adjust to your preferred ride height. When the motorcycle is raised, it creates a smoother ride experience for the user. In a lowered position, it improves handling, stability, and overall drive. Using a VIAIR C model compressor in your custom bagger increases the adjustability of your ride height by either dropping to the ground or rising to stock height when needed.
VIAIR’s NEW line of Motorcycle-specific C Model compressors (now available in our Stealth Black finish) are made for motorcycle air suspension systems. The sleek new color matches perfectly to darker paint jobs. VIAIR’s NEW 95C and 98C Series compressors offer a light duty solution for smaller air requirements and are designed to fill a 1.0 gallon air tank. The model compressor you’ll need depends on the size or weight of your motorcycle. The 95C has a duty cycle of 9% @ 100 PSI with a max. amp draw of 10 amps. The VIAIR 98C has a slightly higher duty cycle of 10% @100 PSI, a max. amp draw of 12 amps, which means it can run for a longer period of time without a break.
VIAIR’s NEW Stealth Black 100 C-model compressor features an omega-style bracket with a standard motor housing and end plates. Insulated wiring is pre-installed with an inline check valve. The 100C has the highest duty cycle of 15% @ 100 PSI and a max. amp draw of 14 amps. This compressor is the best option for larger size motorcycles.
VIAIR is a vital tool in every bagger’s motorcycle setup, not only for the adjustability of the ride, but also the seat height. The better you can touch the ground, the more comfortable and safer you will feel. Confidently air up or down on your motorcycle with VIAIR’s line of quality C-model compressors !
