    Having put up with the bone shakin teeth rattlin stock shocks long enough I am now going to put Progressive 412 shocks on my sportyL. Before ordering, there's a couple of things I'm not clear about & maybe smeone could advise

    Getting input here is a good idea but I would definitely recommend you give the folks at Progressive a call and bounce your ideas off of them.

    Talked to them for about 15 minutes at Destination Daytona during Biketoberfest last week and they're interesting and very knowledgeable folks!

    Good call Doc.
    Just had a very good chat with one of their sales guys. Sounded like he's really on top of it (apart from a little difficulty with my accent!). He was very helpful and I'm now about to order a pair of 12.5 inch 412's.

    After more consideration went for 12 inch ones instead. Got them on today and it's like a different bike. Really tested them on a long ride today over some bumpy country roads....best money I ever spent!
