Mike. The 13 " coils in the rear are amazing. They are adjustable and so comfortable. Can't beat this set up.  Go for it. You will never regret it.  Stuart.

Does it also improve the Front end on your 19 SERG?  Did you get the one designed for the 21 Kockout front end?

Figured going an extra inch on the rear would be a big improvement.

Yes Dave.  I went with the specified front end kit for the CVO 21"wheel.    Best thing I have done to to this bike. It's soooo much a better ride and handling. The upgraded 13"rears just make it better and better.  Stuart.

Thank you for the information.  Seems everyone who has done this front end on the 18/19 SERG has said it helps with the harshness of the front.  Makes me want to do this.  Guess I need to start saving.

I know the rears would be a big improvement as I did Ohlin on the rear and AXEO on the front of my 13 king and love the ride of that bike.

Yes.  Harshness is a good word for it. But the handling really is improved alot.  Stuart.

...did a 150 mile spin yesterday. I'm liking the smooth-gyro feel better each time I'm out. Happy I sprung for the front Dave. Buy once cry once as they say...

On my 2015 CVO Street Glide I had Ohlins 13inch (set at (12 3/4) length in the rear (tool preload adjustment) and Ohlins cartridges in the front set up by Howard. Absolutely the best suspension set up I have had! On my 2019 CVO Street Glide I went to Super Shox on the rear (hand adjustable preload) relocates the shock mount to maintain ride height and Legends cartridges up front since Ohlins does not have their cartridges available yet. I am happy with the Super Shox as compared to the Ohlins, and while the Legend cartridges are a major improvement over stock in my opinion they are not as good of ride as the Ohlins fork cartridges that Howard provided me. Just my opinion.

I noticed that the stock suspension on my 18 CVO RG was better than the factory setup on my 11 CVO SG. Then at about 2500 miles the harshness seemed to decrease quite a bit and the suspension settled in and has stayed somewhat the same since but even though it is better it's still quite harsh, so.......
After doing some research and especially after reading this thread, I just bit the bullet and ordered a set of 13" REVO A's from Brian at Horny Toad HD for the best discount I could find plus free shipping.

I love this site, but the dues here is expensive! LMAO

I just installed my Revo A 13's last night and used a set of 1" lowering blocks, set the sag at 12" as instructed and went for a short ride. About 1/2 way through I stopped and reset the rebound from 3 to 2 and it was much better. Adding the lowering blocks kept about the same ride height as stock (maybe a hair shorter) so kickstand works perfect and lean angle seems the same as well. Only a few miles for now but I'll report back after I get some more time in.

I know you're not a fan of these blocks Jerry and I understand why but i wanted the extra travel that the 13" Revo A's offered but love the factory stance of my bike.

Here is a link for the blocks for the curious;

Well, after a few hundred miles with these 13" Revo A shocks and lowering blocks I found that the rear suspension, as much as I wanted this combination to work out, just wasn't gettin it. So I removed the blocks and reset the sag and put the rebound adjustment back to "3" and went for about a 150 mile back road ride. OK now we're talking!
I highly recommend these shocks, what a difference. They were better than stock with the blocks, but now they are waaay better. By the way I weigh about 215lbs. and my bags are some what full most of the time.


So, Jerry your research and opinions that you take the time to share with us on this site are very, very much appreciated. I wish that Neil and the guys could find an appropriate honor to bestow to you.

Thanks for all you do!

Kelly
