Default Anyone using the CVO shocks?

Looking to upgrade the rear shocks on my 11 fltrx and wonder if the CVO shocks are an improvement or should I just stick with Progressive?

I have adjusted my shocks everywhich way and I am really disappointed with the stock ride, am trying to keep price reasonable otherwise I would try the Ohlins.

Thanks

are you talking about the dial adjustable shocks? there is no CVO specific shock.
the progressives are a good shock
how many lbs are you running in your's now

The dial adjustable shocks listed in the Harley accessorie catalog are listed as the stock shock for 2011 CVO Touring models, not sure if that is what comes with them but that is what is listed in the catalog.

Default cvo shocks

I too was either going to go the cvo or progressive route cause the stock air shocks suck. At least the lowered ones on the custom. Luckily one of my shocks was leaking so I had them replaced under warranty. I had the dealer install the cvo shocks and I paid the difference. They are a night and day difference over the air shocks. I love em. Next up are progressive monotubes for the front.

I got the Premium ride hand adjustable shocks.
Part number
54680-10
IMO they are an improvement over the harley air shocks. more responsive and easy to adjust.
I cant compare them to Ohlins or Progressive or any others though.

Thanks for the input, I figured the list is $499.95 and if I order from one of the 20% off dealers they would a good upgrade.
