    Rear shocks stuck on spigots!?!

    Dear Brains trust, I have a touring model, I upgraded the shocks for Hagons which are working well, but I went to get them off the spigots to lube the splines in the shaft drive and couldnt get them off. Tried WD40 and hitting with a rubber mallet, couldnt budge them at all. The plastic/rubber...
  2. Thanks for adding me. Question about shocks,

    I’m a vertically challenged rider. I have a 2012 roadster what is the shortest shock that can be installed? I’ve noticed they have 11” pair.

    Tom and I replaced the shocks on the old XS1100 today. The cheap shocks I put on 5 years ago were toast. These are Progressive 430's, real shocks. Tome said the ride quality was waaaaaaaay better with the new vs. old. Can you see the difference? The first picture is origianl shocks, second...

    yss shocks arrived

    So, the new shocks have arrived, quick question, can I fit them one at a time without having to put a jack under the bike (I don't have one as yet) whilst its on the side stand, or will this end in tears?

    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...

    New Rear Shocks

    Ok, so I am thinking/finally getting around to changing the rear shocks and front springs. Front springs are easy, they will be replaced with progressive and 7 weight oil. Rear shocks? I am leaning towards the Progressive 444 13 inch Heavy Duty. Opions? I mainly do solo but Linda (wife) goes...

    Guys, have posted this in classifieds but, if nobody minds, thought I might get a better response here. The shocks on my classic are truly terrible, which I think is a common complaint. I need to do something about it but cannot afford new replacements yet. As I understand it, the shocks from...
