Question Need Input on 940's

Okay I need some help with a few questions about the Progressive 940 shocks.
First for the forks that weigh a least 200 pounds and ride two up a lot, do they work, or do they bottom out a lot? They say they work like 13 inch shocks but are 12 inch in size what does that mean? And lastly would spend that kind of money again?

They won't bottom out. I personally would not do it again.

I am 230 and love mine, I would do it again, just sooner. The bike is way more stable through corners, has rebound damping that I didnt have befroe...i.e. smooth compression and then post bump is wonderful...I kept the springs as delivered/

I used the Direct Harley parts from the board here.., paid, had shcocks in 2 days...Around $450-460 shipped.

If you love your freedom, thank a Vet!!

Thanks for the input, I can't swing the ohlins but I might be able to get the 940's.

Ohlins are about 550 thru motorcycle metal vs 459 for 940's via usmotoman. Definetly worth $91 to go with the ohlins.
