Want to upgrade f&r

I have a 07 fltr with 60k on it and want to upgrade both f&r. From what Ive read Progressive monotube up front and Monroe air ride in rear is a good fairly inexpensive way to go. Any help or suggestions would help me decide. Thanks Rich

The more you spend , the better you get. . I run Mono tubes and oem rear. If I ran 2up more , I'd be looking to replace the rear also , but riding 1up the oem is fine.
I personally don't care for the Monroe air. Too many gadgets that can break on the road. A few guys been busting the mounts on these shocks also.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

+1 you cant beat a coil over shock, a lot of good choices out there, mine is progressive.

When all else fails, hell there is always beer!

I agree with Road Dawg, coil over shock is what to do. I'm running Ohlins

Only a Biker knows why a dog hangs his head out the window.

I went with progressive monotube front and picked up a chrome kit and ohlins in the rear. Going to do this over the winter months. God dam Chicago weather. To nice out the last few weeks to chance a long down time now.
