I had Progressive suspension components on both ends of my HD. Great products, not cheap but well worth the price.

Go hakafugu yourself.

My experience with this company has always been good. I've owned fork springs for the DL650, and had a rear shock for a Downhill Mtn Bike (which is basically a motocross bike without the motor ) - I mention this since they did rebuilds on the shock twice (normal maintenance needed), and it was good work and they were a pleasure to work with.

465 Progressive

I have had a non-RAP 465 on the back of the SVStrom for the last year and it is a great upgrade on and off road.

I have used Progressive shocks and fork springs on bikes I have had previously, with good results. I hope to do it to my new '12 DL650 sooner or later. It really makes a great bike greater!

Hey Admin - it sure would be nice to have a link to their website in the original post.

Went Progressive front and rear on my garbage bag green KLR (the wandering green whale) once stock suspension had worn out.

Zero regrets...cheaper then Ohlins...easy install...suspended very well.

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.
