    Anyone use the Progressive suspension touring link to help stabilize the bike, I like to push my bike hard and really take the turns hard, I am looking to just stabilize the bike a little better than stock, any thoughts or suggestions is greatly appreciated, also my bike rides a little hard, it is an 05 Ultra Classic, anyone else have that problem.

    I use the TWR stabilizer, bought it before Progressive came out with thier's. Same basic hookup, behind the trans, not under. The Progressive is about $100 cheaper than the TWR. I would'n ride without one now!! You only need one tank slapper to justify the cost. The TWR parts are 1st rate and install is stright forward and simple, got to believe Progressive is the same.

    Thanks for the info., fortunately I am not worried about the cost, if I hear that someone has really good luck with a product, I will spend a little more money and have something I know about, rather than spend less and be unhappy. One questions though, what was the biggest difference in the change of your bike after installation or what should I expect? Thanks for the help.

    Just wanted to say thanks for the link, it helped out, sounds like that is what I am looking for, just something to make my scoot handle better, I used to ride sport bikes, so I like to throw em around the corners.

    I am about to install the Progressive touring link on my 03 flht. The first thing it says to do is check vehicle alignment. Has anyone really done this first? Seems like quite a job. Is there an easier way than what the book discribes?

    I never checked the alignment when I installed mine & eveything worked out fine . The adjuster is preset & I would think that if anything was out of alignment the adjuster would not fit without changing the adjustment , if you have to change the adjuster then maybe there is a problem . It is a easy install but it makes a difference .
