Wheel and Suspension upgrade by Sport Chrome!
It's well known that our specialty is our world famous chrome plating. Nobody expects performance improvements from a chrome shop, but that's what makes us different! It's not good enough for us that we supply you with a great looking set of wheels, we also want to make sure that we dial you in where you also will enjoy increased performance through corrected overall geometry and superior handling!
We personally run Progressive suspension on our 2018 Road Glide special. We can tell you from first hand knowledge that the suspension improvement is epic! With our wheel and suspension kit you will receive a lowering front mono-tube kit that allows you to maintain proper ride height geometry. The upgrade to the front-end also produces far superior handing with amazing feedback to the bars!
Here is our shop bike with a 21" Reinforcer front wheel and the Progressive 1-2" Lowering Mono-tube kit (set to lowest option). We run our kit at the lowest height setting but if we were doing a lot of touring or riding unknown roads we would suggest going with the upper 1" setting.
Here is an example of a complete wheel and suspension kit available from Sport Chrome!
Here is some info from Progressive Suspension regarding their monotube kit:
"True high performance front suspension is finally available for the 2014+ HD Touring line. Progressive Suspension has combined their road smoothing Frequency Sensing Technology (FST) damper with a progressive rate spring to create a state of the art fork cartridge kit for the late model baggers.
Here is some info from Progressive on their 944 rear shocks.
"944 ULTRA TOURING: Our 944 Series Ultra Touring shocks are designed to deliver a comfortable ride at a 1" lowered stance. Built around our latest proprietary patented FST technology, the Ultra Touring shocks utilize all the suspension travel provided by the full-length stock units, but in a 1" lowered ride height. The unique Ultra Touring spring combination not only delivers a lowered ride height while its being ridden, but also while it’s on the side stand.
(FST) allows the shocks to sense the
frequency of a bump and automatically
adjust damping for superior ride quality
