Don't have either shock, but my past experience with remote reservoirs versus non, is the remote reservoirs were always worth the extra $$$. A bit more plush and don't fade as quick when fluid gets hot.

I can tell you I am very interested in these. Longer coil spring, yet no increase in ride height, twist spring for 2 up, and 7 settings for compression and rebound. Impressive

I see legend just released a remote reservoir shock. About $1400 for a pair. But my curiosity has me wondering if there is a big difference from Revo-a suspension.
Any one have input in general. is there big difference in a remote reservoir shock?

It's my understanding that with the REVO-ARC Shocks will provide a lot more adjustability than say their REVO-A shock which is not a remote reservoir set-up.

With the REVO-ARCs you can adjust both compression and rebound as well as pre-load providing more fine-tuning capabilities which can be a good thing for riders who are technically-minded enough to adjust them properly based on their current load and riding style. However, I also feel that some riders who may not be as up-to-speed on how to properly dial in the shock could give themselves a worse ride if they are not careful because of too much adjustability.

That's my two cents...lol

I got the front and rear installed on my 2018 Road Glide Ultra 2 weeks ago and still can’t get it dialed in to my liking...I do know the bikes handling is superb especially in wide turns and cornering. It’s very stiff, I feel every damn bump in the road and I’ve dialed both the rebound and compression + & - and have decided to keep it on the recommended settings for now. Maybe they need a little more breaking in period, I’ve put around 7 - 800 miles on them. We’ll see what happens in the coming days...

That's a bummer to hear. I really wanted to get these for my 19 RGS - but there just aren't a lot of reviews out there. Let us know if you ever get these dialed into your liking.

The one thing that I always hear about Legend suspension is that it is stiff. Then everyone that has it hopes it will settle in. The consistent stiffness reviews made me look at other brands, even though I could easily get Legend up here in Canada, I went through the hassle of importing Pro Actions and have been happy with their subtle ride since day 1.

Finally got them just about where I want them. They are worth the $ but if you have a dealership install them, first make sure they are knowledgeable about them and set them to your weight preference. My HD dealership, should I say ex-dealership Is full of shit! Good luck!

Good to know! Definitely a diy'er here (I too, have not had stellar luck with the hd dealership service).

Being that stock RGS sits an inch lower than standard - and the fact that I'm a big dude (ride 2 up a lot of times) seems to really show the limitation of the stock suspension.

Hi @RGU18 is that a heat shield I see between the reservoir and the muffler? I have just installed my new ones but they don't have that. By the way what sag did you set it too and what have you dialed on the rebound and compression? I have set 3/4 sag and 3 and 4.clicks on the dials as suggested in the accompanying sheet.
Thanks

Update: Sag still set at 3/4" 3 clicks on rebound and now 3 clicks on compression. I like the ride better.(softer) Maybe I'll continue to fiddle just to see what's available with the settings. I let you know if I find anything better.

You are right Took my wife’s
2017 for a rip at 10k on the OD the stock ride was horrible.installed Revo As,could never really get them dialed in she is long and lean left it on # 3 and you had to run a few miles and they were ok.
Traded her 17 for a 2021 Bronze Armor CVO RoadGlide Was thinking about switching shocks and said screw it. I have heard some encouraging shock reviews on the 20/21’s so I’ll run this new bike a while and figure it out.
all the tweaking... a pain at 64 a CVO made sense in a past time that offers little. She can just ride it and it’s pretty much done. Be safe
