    Progressive 444 spring rate

    Ok so I am finally going to update to the Progressive 444 13 inch rear shocks. The question is do I go for the Standard or the Heavy duty springs? I am around 110kg or 240lb then add my gear to that so 115kg or 250lb ready to ride, my better half also comes along at times. PS> I am trying to...

    New Progressive 444 noises

    I just installed some brand new Progressive 444s, and as I was installing them, they were making clanking noises (see video). Is this normal?

    Progressive fronts

    Just installed the Progressive springs in the front of my 07 Standard. Really like them, seems to be smooth but stiff. Left tube is a little bent, but I think it will be ok. Replaced right tube, disc and fender. Back in January I got stuck between a Rocket and a hard spot. All is good, minor...

    Progressive fork spring install general question

    For the fork spring replacement going to progressives, is is necessary to fully remove the forks from yokes or can the spring swap be done with the fork tubes still in the yokes? I know many other bikes can be done with the tubes still in the yokes, but it looks to me like that approach on the...

    Progressive Fork Springs

    Well one of the fork seals is leaking and since the beast is due for a service I thought, might as well get Progressive Springs for the front at the same time. They arrived in record time (Thanks J&P Cycles, purchased on Tue 26/03 and arrived Mon 01/04, so less than a week USA to Oz). Question...

    Progressive Fork Springs

    Update: manufacturing glitch. I talked with someone at Progressive and after seeing my photos, they seemed pretty sure that's what happened. ***Read on if you are replacing springs or servicing forks. I hope others will have better luck. I couldn't wait for a replacement, so I put the original...

    Progressive 440 Failed ... They won,t fix it.

    My right Progressive 440 is leaking (weeping) fluid and gathering dirt and dust all over the lower end of it. The great part is Progressive won't fix it unless I have a receipt from purchase. Well I didn't buy them. They came on another bike I bought. They said they no longer support the 440...

    Touring progressive fork spring upgrade

    Decided as I can't ride for a month or so while I recover from surgery, might as well do some upgrades. Got out the manual and read through it and went what the heck??? Looked at the bike and lo and behold, no drain plugs on the lower sliders. Could understand that in a Roadster or such with...

    Progressive 444 geometry

    Although I am sure everyone is tired of talking about rear shocks I would like to throw out a couple thoughts and questions to the experts who will hopefully correct any misconceptions. This relates to a Roadster. I do not know what it is about the stock rear shocks but they sure doe not...

    Progressive Shocks Leaking - No Rebuild Available

    My right side Progressive 440 has begun to leak a little fluid. Not running, but sweating enough to gather dust. Performance has begun for fade. I called Progressive and they said they won't repair non warranty shocks even for a fee because they have stopped production of the 440 and only...
