Front suspension

So I知 tackling the front end. I have to rebuild the front forks as they have not been done since new. I figure I値l get all new internal pieces for it. Any suggestions for aftermarket companies to look at. I知 sure I値l get the seals from HD but other then that I壇 like to look for something a little less rough.

I have supershox on the rear at this time.

Thanks

I have Super Shox on the rear as well and the Progressive monotubes work well for me on the front end. Had them on for over a year and been extremely pleased with the difference over stock.

Check out the kits from James Gaskets. I used their kit years back when I did my 2012 front suspension. Anything in the kit that had a part # stamped on it was the same part # stamped on the OEM Harley parts. Good luck!

I'm also running the Legend AXO fronts on my 2018 RGS, but they are a bit pricey.

If you don't want to go the gas cartridge route due to cost you can buy fork spring kits from Progressive pretty cheap that are better than the stock one. The route I would go on your '04 is the kit from Race Tech that have the gold valve cartridge emulators. You can customize it for your weight and desired feel. I installed this kit in my 2010 FLTRX and it rode and handled better than the Progressive monotubes I put in my 2012.

On my RGU I took a spring kit by progressive, a low cost solution that came out to be effective for my needs.

Ohlins on the rear...just pulled the trigger on cartridges for the front. I don't have a lot of money but there's a reason I don't buy half-assed tools...
