I have them on my 2015 and they are a huge improvement over stock and a good upgrade for the money. Front end dive is heavily reduced and the ride and handling are much improved. If you want to compare front ends, I'm just south of you on 194. Heck, I've seen your bike around. Beautiful paint.

I had the monotube on 2 of my prior Street Glides and as other have said it's an improvement over stock. For my current bike (2918 RGS) I decided to step it up to the Legend Axeo, unfortunately I just installed them last week and haven't had a chance to really ride much.

I had them in my 13 FLTRU, quite an improvement.

There's a huge "1 clip or 2" debate. Factory recommends 2, but for a rider my size (about 185lbs), I saw a lot of complaints from people that had 2 clips in (ride was harsh), so I decided to go with 1, and was very glad I did.

I did mine also when I went to a 21" up front, also blacked out front end like you want to while I was at it. Night and day improvement over stock, also added supershox in rear 👍🏻
