Progressive mono tubes

I'm having the progressive mono tube shocks put in my front forks this spring. I am not going to do the rear shocks yet. I assume that it isn't an issue and will still be an improvement in handling and cornering. I love the twisters and pushing the bike a little hard in the corners, so I can't wait to feel the difference. Any comments are welcomed from your own experiences. Thanks.

You'll be good and definitely notice the difference in handling. I waited 2-1/2 years from the time I did my monotubes to do my rear, the monotubes makes more of a difference.

Another happy customer .... put me in the same category. Monotubes -2 and I had the 444 rear done at the same time. The front end handles so much better .

I've only had mine for three weeks and boy what a difference. Well worth the money. After doing the front, I rushed to do the rear and now I have no suspension issues nor air pressure loss and no need to take a pump when traveling.

Enjoy the Ride!

Do the -2 with stock wheels point the nose down at all? or is it level front to rear?
