Has to be a trike thing.Stock 1800's don't have air compressors.I would contact the trike company unless you can locate some aftermarket(add-on)fuses to check.Could be either an add-on fuse panel or just inlines fuses.

1800"s don't have an "Air" pump, they have an hydrolic pump that pumps fluid and the pressure guage ranges from 0 to 25 PSI.

Yes there is.

 

You have to remove the rear center panel on the bike (where the license plate is).  Remove the screws that hold the right saddle bag on, and move the saddle bag back a few inches to gain access to the pump.  I think there are 3 screws that hold the pump on.  When you get the pump out, turn it upside down. With a marker, mark where the hose is so when you put it back together you can line it back up.  Remove the Banjo bolt, keeping the pump level upside down.  Take a small (long) screw driver ad insert it in the hole to push the plunger inside all the way down.  Fill it up with fork oil.  It will only take a little (couple teaspoons to a couple tablespoons full).  Reinstall the house with the banjo bolt lined up to the mark you made on the body of the pump, and reinstall everything.

Just to add to what Jobe05 said before you do anything run it down to zero on the guage.That way when you push the piston down it will stay there and you will get it completely full.
