    Does anyone have any experience with rivera primos stabilizing system called The Stiffey?They are alot cheaper than other stabilizing systems and wonder whether they perform as claimed.

    Looks like a rip off of the Sta-Bo

    Went to their web site and could not find that product on their virtual catalog. Would have been nice to see what you were talking about.

    Hoople ---- go to jpcycles.com and put in J&P part # 700-188 and it will show the $107+ bushing.

    I have the Progressive link on my 03 FLHT and it works great. My bike now hugs curves and feels glued to the road. I would say its worth it.:57:

    Thanks. I would not expect too much from those used alone. Now maybe in conjunction with a link kit you would have something.

    I agree. Mind you I am on a Dyna frame which is all rubber mounted but I would not ride without my 3 link system ever again.

    Maybe i wll check out the progressive.The first time i seen one of these links on a bike was sturgis in 05,the guy who had it was camping next to us and said it was a true trac and they had just starting making them.He had rode from california and said it made a big difference.After aligning rear wheel within the swingarm and then with the front according to manual and switching tire brands twice i still am looking for a little more stability through the curves.The bike is not uncontrollable but i am always looking for improvements.

    Just installed the progressive link today,put it to the test on the s curves to and from work,best money I have spent since installing big bore kit.
