Platinum Air Bleed Feed Mono Shock Kit for 2018 Softails
Fullerton, California based V-twin air suspension pioneer Platinum Air Suspension has announced a new version of its popular ‘Bleed Feed’ air shock for the 2018 M-8 Softails.
The company’s complete Mono Shock Kit includes all the components necessary to convert the stock 2018 Softail into a “luxury ride with top flight handling and the ability to fully adjust the ride height.”
The minimum retracted shock length is 10 7/8”, with a maximum extended shock length of 12 7/8”, resulting in a wide range of actual ride heights from “slammed” to “full handling” mode with a full 4” height range.
For California Softails, simply remove the EPA canister from the transmission, install the canister to the Platinum Air Suspension compressor/valve box, and install the entire assembly to the back of the transmission.
This kit covers the full range of 2018 Softail models and is backed by a one-year limited warranty on all material and manufacturing defects. Owner Mike Ferris says that “we stand behind the brand as “it’s all about the ride” and value the satisfaction of our customers above all else.”
Founded in 2004 by Oscar Sanchez, Platinum Air Suspension began by working on a custom bike project and developed into a complete “air ride system”. Fast forward to 2018, and owner and designer Mike Ferris has developed the company and product into a “world class industry standard - truly the yardstick by which all others are measured.”
The ‘Bleed Feed’ system is Mike’s flagship technology, controlling both ride height and rebound. The system is controlled by positive pressure at all times and easily adjusted at the “flip of a switch for complete comfort” based on rider weight, road conditions and the operator’s riding style.
The ‘Bleed Feed’ system includes air cylinders machined from 6061 T-6 billet aluminum, air-control valve, DOT-approved 1/4” line and fittings, switch/electrical harness, air compressor, hardware and line cutter.
Platinum also offers a simple, lower cost system, which features the same high level of quality components as the ‘Bleed Feed’, but does not include rebound control. The system controls ride height through pump and release pressure.
All Platinum Air Suspension shocks are available in a wide variety of finishes - options include chrome, polished, powder-coated or satin with specific color; special order powder-coating also available.
