    I have 883L can I change the rear suspension to the suspension of 883C?

    I have visited the dealer shop in Beijing and they said that if I want the suspension to be softer I can change to the suspension of the 883C and I know that the bike will be higher, what's your opinion?

    I would think about some progressives to replace the shocks on there now instead of going with the factory shocks of a longer length.

    As Hobbit said...really sad that the "R" models with the dual disc brakes were discontinued a couple years ago...:(

    Progressive makes shocks that could be sprung and setup based on your weight and your solo or two up riding style...they have good customer service, but if you change the back ride height, you may want to do the equivalent thing to the forks if you are happy with the suspension handling up front..again depending on whether your ride solo or two up.
