Well the true test will be when I take it out for a test ride. We've been having thunder storms every day now for weeks. We usually ride 2 up pulling a trailer but I think just the two of us should be able to tell how the ride is going to be. As long as it doesn't bottom out and bounce all over the place, I think I will be able to live with it. We did the tail of the dragon with no shocks so anything will be an improvement as long as the sag is gone. Notice how the trailer is pointing down and how low the back end is to the ground in the picture.

A little bit of a thread high jack..... I have discovered the Progressive air shocks on my 84 are in need of seals, leaking air out. Where are you guys finding seal kits for these things. Progressive reply to my email query with a brief statement of not in the air shock business anymore and not having parts.
thanks,
John

If I remember correctly, when the air shocks on my 80 GL1100 blew the seals, the seals were the same as Progressive shocks. But, that was a long time ago, so I may be a bit fuzzy on that. Still, might be worth a try.

I found a seal kit last year searching for Progressive 30-5041 or maybe I just used the number 30-5041.

You can try 76-5041 as well.


Google turned them up for me.

You can see, not a lot there. Both numbers appear on my package. The big seals that are included are ... I believe Honda originally, same as fit OEM 1200 air / spring shocks.

I used www.SearchTempest.com

and just the number you provided, these hits turned up

Apparently there is a wheel bearing with the same number?
