Default Front Suspension

I recently installed new shocks on the rear of my 2014 Road King. I've only put a couple hundred miles on it, but already see a vast improvement over the stock back breakers. The only downside I see so far, is that it real accentuates just how bad the front springs are. I plan on changing/improving the front suspension.

I hear a lot about Progressive springs, but very little about Race Tech springs, or the spring and valve setup.

or the Pro Action setup.

anyone running the intiminator valves or the Pro Action kit?

I had pro action fst kit and it sucked. It rode so hard. Iím really light at 150lb thatís why they said it didnít work for me. Donít see how that matters since your weight isnít pushing down that much on the front end

Go to the track where money is no object and the only purpose of a damper is to keep the wheel on the ground in contact with the pavement. This applies to all motorcycles. Spend the $30 for a pit pass and go to an asphalt track as that is where you ride. Best $30 in education you ever spent. Go cheap and that is what you get.
