Hello Joe, please tell us what you're riding. Did you simply deflate the bags? or actually have them removed. Can I just take a knife and cut 'me out? I'm tempted to leave them deflated and not replace them either.

If I do this do I really have to get another alignment?

Just returned from a 470 mile round trip for the weekend. I left the airbags deflated and it drove like a champ. Maybe the springs they put on the '05's are stiff enough without airbags.

New Front End Coil Springs and Bell Cranks

[QUOTE=Airstream12557;1186818]As an aside, from time to time, I see ads for new front coil springs that eliminate the need for the air bags. Any comments? With my new bags reliably holding pressure, I don't see the need for the revised spring.

Just received my new Super Steer springs this week. Will have them installed next week. I hope they are worth it.

Also bought new bell cranks because the steering wheel moves a lot from side to side without any wheel movement. Looked underneath while the DW rocked the steering wheel back and forth and saw a LOT of play in the stock bell cranks. Hope this helps.

I replaced my airbags with the Hendersons super steer springs, new bell cranks other bits n pieces in the front end new tires and alignment. The front end was sloppy and due to the (mostly) flat airbag, had to replace steerers (feathering). The YL could not drive ASLY as was, now she handles real nice, best move could have made.
Goto Hendersonslineup, has lots of good info. Leaving bags in deflated might cause chafe and will need to be replaced/removed.
Am very happy getting rid of the bags.

Steve

Losing the Airbags! Yeaaah!

Can't wait to have the springs and bell cranks installed. Also bought new Super Steer idler arms and drag link. Will report back after they're installed.

You won't regret it. You will notice the difference right away.
