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.

Bought an 18 DVO RG a year ago, and found the stock shocks to be extremely rough.  Based upon all of the good reports on the Legends, I went with the REVOs front and back.  While definitely an improvement over stock, I find them to still be very hard going over rough roads.  I traded a number of emails with Legend, trying to get them tuned in, but still find them very harsh on rough roads.  Disappointing for me.

Tempted. The stock shocks on my cvo are pretty darn good though,  can push the bike hard enough through the twisties to scrape the floorboards riding 2 up. Today, I took the bike on some rough and tumble sections of I-81 under construction and the bike felt planted at high speeds.

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:

Happy with the Legends I put on the back of my 2020 Road Glide....Should be doing front and rear on the CVO Street Glide at some point.

Well shucks, doesn’t seem to be a clear winner here.  I’m looking to upgrade my stock 2018 CVO RG suspension all around and it looks like there’s been some good experiences all around.

Although any shock asborber is a wear item. I had heard so I asked the Ohlins sales guy at Daytona a couple years ago and Ohlin does recommend a rebuild around 20k. I can't remember the cost but it was several hundred dollars and of course you had to ship them back for this procedure. Being rebuildable is great, at 20k seems not so great to me.

I had about 36K on my Ohlins, they felt like there was no damping, so I shipped them off to Ohlins and almost $400.00 latter I had a new set again (that price included shipping to and back to me) I think next time I may look into another brand.

I have had mine rebuilt twice.  I believe right a 250 each time.  They had just over 30K miles on them each time.  Ohlin has a booth at dayton bike week and they rebuild then there.  Ride in, the remove your shocks, install loaners.  They call when done and you come back and they install your shocks again.

Legends have a Lifetime warranty and only charge for shipping to get them rebuilt.
