Suspension upgrade
« on: July 06, 2020, 12:43:27 PM »

So after riding around on my new 2020 RG Limited I have noticed how much better the suspension is compared to my 15 CVO Street Glide. Is it the street glide to road glide comparison or is it that the Street Glide is almost 6 years old and things get weak? I am thinking it's time to upgrade the front and rear suspension on the 15.  I don't need the best of the best....but what am I using--Ohlins front and rear, Legends, etc? Front and rear should match--no?

Legends! Lifetime warranty, great shocks. Never had a complaint from the hundreds that we have sold and installed!

I used the FKC102 cartridges on the front and the HD772 Blackline shocks in the rear on my 2016 CVO Street Glide, it road like a different bike afterwords.

For the rear on my 2020 CVO Street Glide I used the Russ Wernimont Designs shocks and I cannot believe how good these shocks are. I have used the top of the line Ohlins on my previous CVO, these simply blow away any other shocks I have used. It felt as if I changed my seat as well. Matt Laidlaw has a video on them:

No problem with the remote resivore interfering with the plugs that go in the rear of each bag?

None whatsoever. It also has a arm that rotates the reservoir away from the bags. You have to order the correct set. They are the best shocks I have ever used. Bar none

Legend Revo A's for me. I went from the stock 12" to the 13" as many here have done. Amazing difference!

I had RevoA H-D Version shocks and now have the Fox IFP-R shocks H-D Version and I prefer the Fox IFP-R by a lot. They are much smoother on small stuff and still resist bottoming very well on large hits. However I’m not sure about the Fox front cart rides in H-D yet. They seem really good 2 up but too stiff 1 up. I’m giving them a few thousand miles to settle in before I make a real decision on them.

Curious as what makes them so much better than all the others?  I currently run Ohlin on one bike, 134 inch and really like them a lot.  I have legends in the front of that bike.  Was looking and legends all around for this bike.

I watched the video, I like the idea of smooth.  However I am more of the guy that runs the corners or canyons as he says, so my Öhlins are set a bit firm.

What ever I do they will be 13 inch shocks, extra travel helps.

I also got the 13" shocks. I ride the same as you. These shocks are almost magic. On the street with rough roads they are luxurious ride, in the twistys they are keep the rear planted, and I have never bottomed out even once. I called and talked to them before I bought and their description sounded too good to be true. I was impressed. My Ohlins HD 357 I thought was wonderful but frankly this is way beyond. You can set the shocks for whatever type of ride you want, but from the factory it was awesome and I did nothing but set the sag.
