'12 Suspension Upgrades...

My '03 shark has Progressive pieces including monotubes..... While I like how the '12 handles, the fork dive is crap, and the rear when unladen is a pretty harsh ride, even at the lowest setting.
So I stuck with what I know, and is available here at good pricing, was just too bad the Alloy Art brace is on back order. Spent the last time out of camp touring around like a fool, so the mods will have to wait till I get back out again.......
Looking forward to the difference on an already pretty good scooter

Thats a beautiful CVO, Im sure the Monotubes and 940 rear shocks will make an improvement , they did on my bike.

If the Alloy Art stabilizer s not available the Progressive unit is a nice piece for the newer frames.

I'm running monotubes and Ohlin's and love then , ran monotubes and 940's on the last bike and was happy with that set up too , for my money I run the True Trak bagger brace and it works well
