Just rapped up the install of my new Arnott air suspension system (Part #9024) on my 2012 Gangsta.
Went relatively smooth. The only thing that needed to be done was to drill new holes on the support bracket for the air compressor
so it sat closer to the frame, everything else was plug-n-play. Also picked up a nice switch that I mounted
on the bars between the grip and the controls all wiring is internal. I got approximately 3 1/2 inches of travel.

After all the wiring and plumbing was done I installed the switch.
I also added a pressure gauge from Dekota Digital.
Didn't get a chance to ride it yet, temp here in NY NY is in single digits.

Nicely done. I suspect you will be very favorably impressed when you're able to take that first ride. Here's hoping the winter is short and the roads are clean quickly!!

Mikie, looks good and clean. Did the
up and down switch come with the kit
or is a Pingle item???

That is a first class job. I installed a set of Morrows on a couple of bikes and they are junk so trying to save a buck was a waste of time plus about $150. The compressor is a super one but the rest was just a drill.

Nice install...looks great...ride report is anxiously awaited.

Did you loose the auto ride height then??
Yes, I had to eliminate the self leveling option which can be compensated by on-the-fly adjustment.
