You can probably get the progressive monotubes for less money and they are just as good.

My question would be who makes the kit for HD, you know Progressive makes their own, and it's been around a while and proven, ijs.

2010 FLTRX With Plenty of extras, goes by the name "Hardeshia"

The Harley kit uses a cartridge on one leg and a damping rod on the other , the dampening rod is prehistoric technology that comes on the bike I would want to eliminate , the progressive is a double cartridge system

I was thinking progressive one, but wasn't sure. Someone local told me to check out the hd one.

Looks like Progressive doesn't offer the double cartridge kit for the 2015 bikes.
