I would love to hear from shark owners that are running legends suspension. I agree Ohlins may be the best but I am leaning towards best American made. I want to make America great again with my purchase decisions when I can.

I had friends that ran legends and progressive.. they said progressive was better.

I don't know about the Ohlins though.

Been on Legend Suspension Revo A for about 3 weeks now. I am on a 16 RGU, the factory rear started leaking at 6.5k. I am not disappointed at all with these shocks. The riding and handling has been improved by leaps and bounds. No more butt puckering on big bumps. I can throw the bike in the curves more aggressively and it stays planted. And the ride is just more comfortable all round. I like being able to fine tune the shocks without needing any extra tools, goodbye air pump. One selling point with these were the lifetime guarantee. I can not say how they compare to other manufacturers or the pros and cons of each, but with my limited experience the Legend Suspension are a great American product with a great warranty.

I like mine. The install is straight forward. Good adjustability. 7,000miles and no complaints. I have no experience with Progressive or Ohlins so I can't compare. I know yay I am not disappointed in the performance provided by the Legends on the front or rear (Revo-A on the rear).

I got a set of Revos at Sturgis last year they knocked off $50 and put them on for free. I rode the 900+ miles home in one day and loved every mile of it. Others may be better but I can't believe they can be much better.

I have the legend axeo's in the front, SS in the rear. I am happy with both. The front no longer dives, soaks up big hits extremely well and rides like it is on rails. The only downside is they are a little harsh on small sharp bumps, but are always planted. The SS in the rear are equally good.

I've read that the 13 inchers "sit like 12s", thus, lowering the bike but retaining great feel. Have any of you had that experience? Lower is what I need without a rough ride.

I run Legends all around on my 15' CVO RGU. I rode 20K on the stock suspension before switching to Legend. I now have 20K on the Legend setup and I have to say the ride and handling characteristics are excellent. I will agree with MorningWood on his observation of the ride being a little harsh but well planted on small sharp bumps. That is my experience as well. Mountain riding is ridiculously fun. A bike this large shouldn’t be able to handle like it does.

I ran Progressive Monotubes on my 13' RGU and I thought you couldn’t get any better. I won’t make a direct comparison though since fork tube sizes and other factors changed between 2013 and 2015. My original plan was to install Progressives on my 15 but I think I made the right choice for me going with the Legend setup. The bike is comfortable, solid, and quite a bit more capable than stock. I would do it again without hesitation.

I had progressive on rear and although better than stock I bottomed out a lot. I did the DIY Monroe shocks and all I can say is Ughh. 500 miles and I took them off. I have Legends on the rear and I absolutely love them. Pressure gauge in dash, handlebar mount switch and I set it how I want on the fly. Nice!
