I've read everything I can find on the 944 setup and watched the youtube vid from Progressive on setting SAG, and I'm still confused
Installed the standard 944's on my '13 FLTRU yesterday and checked SAG per the video. Out of the box SAG (no pre-load) is 2" - seems like a lot. Fooled with pre-load settings for a while and the least SAG I can get with 5 lines showing is 1 3/4" - still seems like a lot, and seems like fully adjusting for max pre-load would have changed more than a 1/4".
Went for a ride with the wife and it was ROUGH! Wife says she won't be riding again til I get this figured out (I know, some may say what's wrong with that, but I enjoy our ride time).
Plan at this point is tweak the adjustments until I get a smooth (better) solo ride, then bump up for two up ad tweak some more to make the wife happy.
More background - did not get HD springs as our combined weight seemed borderline and read many comments about HD's being too stiff (I'm 225, wife is 130). Haven't called Frank at Progressive yet - would rather have valued input from forum members that have worked this out and assume he will suggest a spring swap - may or may help - dunno. Also read A LOT about how stupid we are to buy anything other than JRI, Ohlin, etc., etc., etc. May end up going that route, but want to try to work these out first.
I've gleaned a ton of great information from RG members on other topics/issues - looking forward to more of the same here.
