    I am considering changing my rear progressives to Road King Air shocks. Has anybody done this. I've read that the ride is smoother. 2008 Xl1200.
    Any thoughts?

    Well in the old days I put struts on, I liked the way it firmed up the back, but I was not at the age where comfort was a factor I had to consider. Then went to Sturgis I think in 90 or 91 and Progressive had a kiosk and put a set of those on and set them to the stiffest setting and still have them today. I was and am very happy with those shocks.

    I would be concerned of the shear size of King's shock being able to fit the rear of a sportster with no body mods......
