Crank the fittings untill they are really tight, hard to explain the exact amount of pressure needed, different size fittings need different amount of torque.

a 1/8" fitting wont be as tight as a 3/4" fitting.

i wanna bag the front suspension of my lowrider trike...how do i go about gettingthe parts i need?
What u want to do is to get 1 Bimba 2/3 inch stroke mini cylinders. Hit up Ebay for one, search for Bimba air cylinders.
That cyllinder goes in place of the spring up front.

The set will only a paddle switch, the bike is light so a good 60/80 psi may even hop. Tank, I like the compact CO2 bottles for paint guns. The tricky part would be the tank adapter will have a diagram for u 2morrow.

Too much 2 rite on a blackberry

may sound lame but to us noobs to this it will help. how far do you tighten the valves and fittings?? hand tight and quarter turn or what?
What I do is hand tighten the fitting as tight as I can, then tighten w/the wrench 2/3 more turns.

When you start hearing a noisy squeak you may be over doing it.

True, but there isn't a small enough bag for the front, if u can fab a bag damn that be tight as hell. 200 psi is too much. Keep in mind u don't have an engine in that. There's 1/8" valves but don't go past 1/4" valves. Going higher on cetain parts would be unessessary.
U are also going to need a batt for noid valves. I've always been curious about those power wheel batts. It says 12v on it worth a try if u get ur hands on one.
