The ride is not to bad... Not going to lie, It is little stiffer ride.. but there adjustable for a little more comfort.But ill take these anyday over old air shocks that leak , have to put oil in, etc.. Put them on and walk away. Mine have three different adjustments you can play with.adjustable compression, damping and rebound
I rebuilt the rear shocks on my 1100 last year and didn't like them. I really liked the Progressive shocks on my 76, so I tried a set on the 82. I love them. Rides much better(to me). It has Progressive front and rear now.
Exactly what I want for my 1200LTD. Not worried about a stiffer ride. On board compressor setup was junk, removed it and tossed it. Tried to put air in shocks with a pump, but it leaked out. Way to mushy now. I was even considering the $100 per pair ones from SaberCycle. Now I know SaberCycle sells Chinese junk, but I need something cheap. Would be happy with used, if I knew something that would fit.
