ELEVATE YOUR RIDE.® with this sporty Arnott Smooth Ride Air Suspension Kit -- custom-designed to give the VTX® 1300/1800 owner more ride height control, comfort, and great looks.
With Arnott's true on-board adjustability, you can easily lower your bike so you can rest flat-footed while stopped or maneuvering your bike for parking or to more easily allow the rider or passenger to get on or off the bike. Then with a flick of the onboard toggle switch you can raise the bike and control softness of the ride based on your load or road.
At the core of this affordable system are Arnott's sport shocks, known for providing a great ride similar to the stock shocks. The shocks are custom-machined from aircraft quality 6061 billet aluminum. Then, Arnott adds rugged Goodyear® air springs, ensuring superior comfort, ride quality, and durability.
Arnott pairs your shocks with a small but powerful compressor that has multiple mounting options. The kit also includes a distribution valve block with muffler, fused wiring harness and relay assembly, all necessary tubing, cable ties, fittings, bolt covers, momentary toggle switch, detailed installation manual and all mounting accessories. Each shock is custom-crafted and rigorously tested in Arnott's Florida manufacturing facility and is backed by Arnott's Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Many of Arnott’s most popular motorcycle air suspension kits have been pre-assembled and are available for immediate shipping from our Merritt Island, FL facility if ordered by 2:30 PM ET (Monday – Friday). Kits that are not in stock will be custom assembled at Arnott’s Florida facility and are typically shipped within 1-2 business days (if all components are available).
