    Hello all,

    I am looking to upgrade my shocks, Im looking at putting on BLACK PROGRESSIVE 440 SHOCKS becaues I do a lot of two up riding. I found a pair for about $380- $400, I would like you guys take on the ride and qulity of this shock. Ive never purhased ANY shocks before so not sure where to start. Any info would be a GREAT help. Thanks

    I have the 440 shocks on my '02.
    The change was very noticeable and recommended.
    Stock shocks will last only so long.
    You'll notice the improvement.

    If you buy the 440 shocks new, keep the receipt as they come with a life-time warranty.

    I bought a set of shocks from JP cycle and love them.I got the ones labeled JP Cycles Progressive shocks.They were $174 not $400 and are made by Progressive susp. I do alot of two up riding,set in the middle setting we have never bottomed out and the ride is so smooth

    Works performance shocks will make you a set with springs set for your riding style and weight. They cost the same as Progressive.
