Legends Axeo front end

I had the legends installed in the front forks this week. Wow what a difference. The bike feels like a crotch rocket now Compared to what it felt like with the stock suspension. If anybody is on the fence about the legends front end buy itís great. I have the 13 inch 2017 newer coil over shocks on the rear. They seem to work well with the front end.

Good to hear... These are on the list and will most likely be going with Ohlins on the rear...

I had Ohlin 2a on the rear last year. Just never could get them to ride to my liking. They seem to get good reviews. Just couldnít get them set right I guess.

I am going to ride it a bit white the HD coil overs on the rear for some miles. If they donít work out it will probably be Revo A next.

I've been contemplating these.... when you say sport bike feel, you mean stiff or you referring to the lean support or both? I'm reaching 37,000 so I'm pretty close to rebuilding the front forks and this is good information your sharing...

I have progressive, which I had the dealer install when I purchased and the HD nitrogen adjustable rears. Trying to learn more about the Ohlin and Legends to make a decision.... Either one sounds good and price points seem the pretty close.

I mean stiff feeling. After riding 500 miles on them I am not sure the ride has improved at all. Less nose dive and handles better in curves but sometimes it about knocks my teeth out on a bump. Wonder if they set the preload wrong. I was hoping for a smoother ride but I got better handling with a rougher ride.

I have the axeos in front and Super Shox in back. The SS are awesome the ledgends are good but not exceptional. They reduced dive, soak up big bumps exceptionally well, feel very planted, but will jar you on small sharp bumps. The instructions said for my load to set the pre-load at 1. Taking advice from others on the forum, I set my pre-load one softer (at 0) and I am happy I did. Overall I am happy with them, but I also got them for $535 brand new shipped to me, that makes them a little better.
