I have the non-air CVO shocks and find that if I set it stiff for 2-up I will still bottom out (and she's only 105-lbs; I'm 210). Then if I don't set them soft when riding solo it will literally bounce my ass two feet up when i hit a bump. I'm 6-3" so I don't want to lower it. Any suggestions? I already installed the monotubes and really appreciate the improved ride.

Ive ridden with stock, 940 and a couple friends bikes that have the hand Adjustable CVO, Terry cable and Ohlins.

IMO they line up like this from worst to best
1. Stock HD air
2. HD hand Adjustable (CVO)
3. Progressive 940-944-444
4. Terry Cable or Works Performance
5. Ohlins or JRI

a lot depends on your riding style as well, many - many riders will never need or feel the difference in suspension.

I just purchased the JRI "B" shocks and I love the adjustability. I am still getting them dialed in but I can say, they are great. A couple of clicks with the bottom dial for 2 up, one uop with luggage, single, all very easy. I too have the monotubes up front and am very pleased with the ride. I found myself riding 5 - 10 mph faster due to the smooth ride on Sunday.
