Relocated the air shock air valve from the left side cover to outside  just behind the rear jug.

Awesome, I was thinking of the same thing but worried about creating a leak putting bracket behind the cover. How did you mount that bracket?

I forgot who, but there is somebody on here that makes and sells the bracket for $10-15.  I haven't had any leaks and I've had it on for about two months.  The person I'm referring to also suggests an extender that you can get from Amazon.

I just saw this. My website is Georgegadgets.com
You can get the complete kit with bracket and hose. I also have it listed on eBay.
If you know someone on a Victory I also make it for the Victory also.

I have the complete kit on the website now, georgegadgets.com because it was hard for everyone to find a hose. I have a couple of distributors and the manufacturer that Iím getting hoses from and it has been difficult for me to keep them in stock. I think I have it worked out now though.
I also have a bracket and complete kit for Victory.

Hi George
Welcome to the forum!
I'm curious about the Indian kit and maybe the Victory kit too.
On the Indian, does the new location have an issue with the heat from the rear cylinder? That's about the hottest spot on the bike.
Thanks for posting.  8)

I'm checking into this too, Kevin.  I'll let you know what I find and how it goes.
Think about donating blood, regularly.  It is desperately needed and it keeps folks alive!  Thank you

I put the kit on my Chieftain, the heat doesn't seem to affect the extension negatively.

Looks like a nice install on the valve relocation.

Did not see any info on a garage door opener install?  Is there one?

Thank you, probably order soon. Sent link to my son to see if he wants one for his Vic so we can order together and save shipping cost

I have made a couple of garage door openers but since it is so variable on different doors mo-door seems to be the easiest choice.
