Platinum Air Suspension

‘Bleed Feed’ Tech Air Suspension for 2018 Softails

Fullerton, California based Platinum Air Suspension has announced the launch of a new and improved Bleed Feed Mono Shock Kit for 2018 Softail Models.

With a minimum retracted 10 7/8” and maximum extension of 12 7/8” it has a 3 1/2” diameter and offers 4” of rear lift and shock travel for 2018 Street Bob, Low Rider, Softail Slim, Fat Bob, Deluxe, Sport Glide, Fat Boy, Heritage Classic, and Breakout models.
Founded in 2003, owner Mike Ferris says that “our mission is to bring quality, value and innovative technology to hard-core custom motorcycle riders, using our proprietary Bleed Feed technology to produce the market’s best air suspension riding system.”
Based on the technology that was used in the trucking and aircraft industry, Platinum has adapted and tuned it for the specialty requirement of motorcycle suspension to use pressure for the lift and back pressure for ride height adjustment and rebound control.
“Our system allows the rider to have a lowered look and comfortable ride at any desired ride height. We manufacture and test to rigorous standards and have ‘Bleed Feed’ and ‘Simple’ systems available for H-D/V-twins, metric cruisers and street bike applications.”
For Californian buyers and the EPA regulations, Mike advises removing the canister from the transmission, reinstalling an EPA canister to the Platinum compressor and valve box, then bolt back to the transmission.
