Suzuki S40 Boulevard Air Ride Kit: The Best Upgrade For Your Buck

The Suzuki S40 Boulevard is a popular cruiser all around the planet. With ample power for its lightweight body, the Boulevard – formerly known has fans on multiple continents in places like Japan and New Zealand, as well as many here at home in the United States.

But while the S40 has a lot to celebrate, there’s still room to make it better. The new Suzuki S40 Boulevard Air Ride Kit from the Suspension Experts at Strutmasters is an affordable way to improve performance, functionality, comfort, and accessibility. These advantages make this air ride kit quite possibly the best upgrade you can buy for your Suzuki S40 when it comes to value for your dollar.

What Is a Suzuki S40 Boulevard Air Ride Kit?

The stock suspension on your Suzuki S40 is a spring-based coilover suspension. While this is a highly-durable and serviceable suspension, it may not be the best option for riders who want more out of their Boulevard.

The Suzuki S40 Boulevard air ride kit allows you to replace the stock suspension with an adjustable pneumatic suspension. Whereas the OEM suspension on your Suzuki uses mechanical resistance from springs and struts, an air suspension uses pressurized gas to provide damping power.

What Does a Suzuki S40 Boulevard Air Ride Kit Do?

An air ride functions differently from a traditional coilover suspension in a few ways. As a result, it allows the rider to do some things with their Suzuki that aren’t easy to do with the stock suspension. These include:

  • Adjust ride height: The Strutmasters Suzuki S40 Boulevard air ride kit allows you to adjust the height of your suspension and therefore, your seat height relative to the ground.
  • Adjust firmness: With an air ride kit installed, you can also adjust how firm or soft your suspension is without making modifications.
  • Lower on demand: This air ride kit allows you to go in and out of low-rider mode whenever you want in only a few seconds with the flip of a switch.

Suzuki S40 Boulevard Motorcycle Air Ride Benefits

The Suzuki S40 air ride kit from Strutmasters is an easy, affordable upgrade for your bike that provides powerful improvements instantly. After installation, you’ll notice that a few things have gotten easier, better, or both.

Instant Adjustability

Making adjustments to your stock suspension requires a great deal of effort at the least and difficult and risky modifications at worst. But with a Strutmasters air ride kit installed, you can make instant adjustments to height and firmness. Whether you want to drop your Suzuki S40 down to lowrider height or soften the suspension for a long, smooth ride, you can do so in a few seconds with the flip of a switch.

Increased Comfort

This air ride kit allows you to fine tune the firmness of your suspension to find the ideal resistance and most comfortable setting for your weight and riding style. The result is a ride that’s exactly what you want and know is best for you. This property also allows you to adjust your Suzuki S40 Boulevard suspension to accommodate an additional rider with maximum comfort.

Improved Performance

Being able to adjust the firmness of your suspension also means you can adapt it to whatever style of riding you want to do quickly and easily. Switch to a sportier, more firm feel when taking your S40 through zippy hillside highways. Make your ride softer for long cruises through the country. By adapting to your riding style, you can ensure that you get optimal performance in any conditions.

Greater Accessibility

The ability to easily adjust your ride height means a wider range of people can ride your Suzuki S40 comfortably and safely. You can drop the bike down to make it easier for shorter riders to mount and dismount. The ride height can also be raised to give taller riders a more comfortable seating position and reduce knee strain. Your OEM motorcycle suspension is a “one size fits most” approach. The Strutmasters air ride kit for your Suzuki S40 Boulevard gives “one size for everyone” accessibility.

Upgraded Aesthetics

Who doesn’t love a beautiful cruiser like your Suzuki S40 Boulevard riding low? When you install this air ride kit, you can drop your bike down whenever you want in just a few seconds. Perhaps more importantly, you can also raise it back up when you need to go anywhere with inclines or speed bumps. The Strutmasters Suzuki Boulevard air ride kit gives you all of the aesthetic value of the lowrider look without any of the safety hazards or inconveniences.
