Old post and you have probably already made a decision but if your going to go to Progressive I would go with either the 440 or the 940. The 416 is a lower level shock and IMO may still be better than the stock HD Air Shocks iit is a long way from the 440 or 940.
440 can be found from Phatperformance and Eastern for the mid $ 400s and 940 which are their top of the line "Touring" Shock and is a 13" shock that sits the bike at the lowered ride height of a 12" (SG or RGC) shock, they can be found for 459 -479 from US Motoman on E Bay or direct from his site.
if you go with the 940 they are set up stiff and if you are solo under 225 lbs they may be a little stiff , if so contact Progressive Tech Support and ask for a RMA to send the shocks to them for a lighter spring. They will do it no charge and pay shipping back (so your cost flat rate box from USPS is 10.00 or less) and turn around is less than a week.
I had mine changed and Im told that they may have the lighter spring set up available option when you order the shocks direct from the factory
