The 416s are also used on Harleys and they seem to swear that they use way more oil than the Goldwing people are talking. They also come in 11", 12" and 13" give or take some fractions. I wonder if this has anything to do with the amount of oil.

or it could be the upper springs have failed, more likely problem. and progressive site has always been bad, they want u to call them. they use to have replacement springs avail.
I know a lot of valkyrie riders were using their 440 shocks. now that progressive disco'd them they provide zero rebuild support and many are failing lately.
