    I just purchase sportster 883 low and found that the rear suspension is a bit hard even when it is on the 5 position.
    Can somebody recommend me what is the best softer suspension I can buy for this model:s

    Progressive suspension makes a choice of shocks that would benefit your needs with the shocks that are on the bike now.

    So I understand that you recommend not to change the suspension right?

    I believe the omnipotent Glider was suggesting that if you're unhappy with the current shocks, a company called Progressive makes replacement shocks that are better than the stock ones you have.

    I switched to Progressives on my 2007 1200 Sporty and was very pleased.
