I just finished installation of the progressive 444 rear shocks on my RG. Took the bike for a spin and they feel a bit stiff. I never got over 10mph, and I didn't have a passenger on, so maybe they will feel a bit better when at highway speeds and a passenger. Anyone have this experience? I made sure I didn't purchase the stiff version, so that's not the problem. And I don't have a tour pack either. Also, my ride sag at min. Preload was only 1/2-3/4". I couldn't get 1" out of the shocks. I weigh about 210lbs. Does this seem normal?

I have the 444's and that's all I get for preload. I go 195#. Standard springs as well. You are going to have to get a few miles on them to make adjustments. Even 1/4 turn can make a difference.
