    Thumbs up Progressive 940 rear shocks

    Picked up a slightly used set of Progressive 940 rear shocks from a buddy of mine...

    Here's some info on them..
    J&P Cycle because Progressive's site blows.

    Still like new...


    Off with the old HD air shocks


    Look ma, no suspension


    This was one of the simplest bolt on mods ever.



    Even still accepts my sissy bar attachement


    It's sad this is all you can see behind the saddlebag, they're almost too pretty to be covered up this much.


    So far I really like them. I'm really curious how they are with a passenger. I don't think I will have to adjust them. So far so good.

    I got a deal on some used Ricor shocks that were like new but not really impressed with them although they are still a step up from the stock air shocks. Like to hear what these progressives are like.

    I will keep ya'll post abt them. But next time we get together, I'll let ya ride it.

    I went down I-75 to Ohio last night... hit some huge crap in the right two lanes through Monroe. NEVER bottomed out these shocks. And I only have them set on the first notch (softest). The harder you set them, the better at avoiding bottoming out they would be.

    940's are suppose to ride better, be more responsive,lower the bike, and not require any tools to adjust.
