Did a lot of research on the topic of front end suspension and was needing to come down 1" on the front end (challenged in the inseam department). I decided to go with the mono-tube by progressive which was done a couple of days ago and all I can say is that for all of the post I read in testimony for the mono-tube was actually right-on!!!!!
No dip in the front end when breaking, I did not feel a compromise in the riding for the 1" lowering and the most amazing feeling was almost like you were riding on a rail, it was so steady it was unbelievable and NO! I don't work for progressive suspension.
So for all of you out there setting on the fence trying to make up your mind to pull the trigger, go for it!!! yes they're a little costly but well worth it, while you're at it, go ahead and change out for chrome forks, seeing that you've got to take the old forks off anyway, and no! the fairing did not have to come off to install the new suspension, labor hours were about 3.5 or 4 if you know what your doing, my dealer did this job.
You won't regret it.
