Guys,
I am getting ready to replace the suspension front and rear on my 2015 RG. I am running a 21" front and 17" rear now. I have already ordered and have in hand my 970's for the rear in 12" HD spring rate and monotube lowering kit for the fronts. I have a tour pack and will be riding 2 up 75% of the time.
My question is, is this the right set up. I was so sure when I ordered all of it, but now Im ready to install and I 2nd guessing myself. I want to get it down about an inch or 1.5" but keep as much travel as possible. Im 200 lbs and the wife is 150.
I don't want this to get into a battle of brands and people saying that you should have gone with Ohlins and that is the only way you will get a good ride. I agree that Ohlins are very good shocks, I just also believe that Progressives are as well and I went that route.

Thanks
Pete

I have a 21" front with mono tubes and lowered it 1 1/2 and also 12" on rear. I need new rear shocks cause my 412's bottom out way to much. But the front end ricks with the mono's :). Your gonna love them
