Is it normal to lose air in the bags after a while? I usually have to put air in the passenger side bag every two weeks.

Check your connections from your hoses to the bags and check your shrader valves on the fillers yet?

A soapey rag on connections will reveil any leaks.You should not loose any air in that short a time.

when i had my atr duals installed, they rerouted the air bag lines over the gas tank. Is it possible that the lines could be pinched?

Mine are over the gas tank also, there should be plenty of room up there. I put mine in 3/8" convoluted tubing that they hide stereo wires in just in case of some abrasion. I'd double check the fittings first.

You can unscrew the schrader vavles and check the seal on them, use the soapy water after screwing them back in. Or just use a little spit on em, works for me, well, except right after a glass of lemonade....
