Are there any other manufacturers that make an air ride like Tricky Air? I have heard some horror stories about them and was wondering if anyone has used or heard of any one else that make a similar product. Looking to do this for my winter project....I already am using the lowering kit from CI...So as you can see I want the height back for the ride....but I want to slam it down for when the bike is parked....

I am considering a lowering kit, However, I can't bring myself to compromise ride hieght just to make it look cool while parked. Any help with alternate systems would be appriciated. After reading this string I don't think I want to part with close to a G. just to have issues with the tricky air. I do alot of distance riding and cannot compromise reliability. Thanks for the info!!

I have the new Tricky Air and have not had any issues so far. I have filled it with air all the way and let sit for about a week. I didn't notice any pressure loss. Also the new version has an adjustable dampening screw. I have not messed with that part yet though. Anyway, I am happy with mine so far(3 months, and @ 1500 miles), and the ride is pretty good. I would buy it again.

Has anyone installed the tricky air by themselves? If so, is there any helpful hints you can provide on install?
I did mine myself. Putting the compressor under the seat is kind of a pain. If you take your time, it's not that hard to do. I'll take a couple pics and post them this afternoon so you can get an idea where everything goes.

Here you go. Where the compressor is, there is a bracket holding some fuses. That bracket is removed and fuses tucked underneath, and to the side. It fits perfect without that bracket and actually opens up a lot of room. Anyway, hope this helps. If you need any more info, pics, or help, let me know............

Curious - if you put this on and you already have the BMS Lowering kit with the adjustable dogbones, do you put your stock dogbones back on or keep these in??? It seems that they both do the same thing - except this becomes adjustable on the fly versus a fixed position.

You should be able to keep the lowering dogbones on. Does the Tricky have a minimum height adjustment? You might be able to bottom the whole bike out(in park of course) if you want to by keeping the lowering bones on.

I think the potential problem with that is, if you lose air pressure for some reason the tire will be hitting the fender and you wont be able to ride it. I think if you lose pressure with the stock dogbones, you will still be able to ride it. I could be wrong though...
