I will leap in on this and ask, How is the ride on those compared to your air assisted shocks?

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.
