    Hello, I just purchased a 2003 FLHRI. Can someone tell me where the rear air shock pressure tap is located?

    I have hard saddle bags. Do they need to be removed to get to the tap ?

    Remove bag on right side and schrader valves are behind bags. Make sure you ONLY use Harley's low pressure pump designed for the suspension or you could damage system.

    Sounds like you didn't get an Owner's Manual when you bought the bike. Well worth searching for one on Ebay and then getting the Service Manual for that specific model also if you plan to do any of your own maintenance. Many also like to have the Parts Manual.

    The nut may be tricky to see at first as it can look like a regular nut rather than a valve cap. It runs at a 90 degree angle to the frame.

    Seems to me you only have to open the bag to see the valve

    You are correct sir, just remove the lid and there it is.
