Hi,

I ordered Progressive suspension rear shock + progressive springs for front installed 2 months ago.

The overall quality of shock remains to be seen.
Mounting bolts for the adjuster + attacment screw for adjustent knob are really low quality. They started to rust 2 weeks after installation looking very bad.
I have now replaced those with stainless steel ones.

I used 10W brand of synthetic oil for front forks.
Now I can see that a bit more damping is required.
15W would be a better choice
The recommened spacer is too long. I would shorten it at least 1/4 of inch compared to instructions.

I live in Finland and the temperature has not been over 20 C yet.
==> front work will probably not work better when temperature rises.

My Wee is 2007 model 1000 cc.
