Default Suspension upgrades on my 2017 SG

Just installed a set of Pro Action street series 13 rear shocks along with FST fork cartridge system from DK.Man, bike rode like a Corvette before now it is hybrid of Cadillac and Corvette all in one.Its a night and day difference in the ride..Cant say enough about it.Just looking at the old spring coils on the rear shocks you can see how flimsy the coils are compared to these Pro Action shocks.Front end is not stiff rebounds fantastic.I find myself looking for pot holes here in Michigan just to feel how a good suspension should respond.

Come on now, you know you're just imagining all that improvement (cross-thread points)

Just installed Legend shocks on mine yesterday and I'm imagining great things too.

I did ProAction as well and agree with you. Fantastic shocks and a huge difference.

After reading about these Pro Action shocks I'm thinking they'll be on the list for next winters upgrades.

Pro Action makes a great shock and they are soooo easy to adjust. You made a great choice! Thanks for posting your review

Does the pro action rears allow you to adjust both rebound and compression? If so, have you fine tuned yours and found a noticeable difference in the individual settings?

Pretty sure the internal valving of the shock dictates compression and it would only be adjustable by opening up the shock and changing the valves. Rebound damping is adjustable via the **** on the outside of the shock body. I don't have Pro-Action shocks but I have Legend Revo-A shocks and there's a noticeable difference with even one click of the rebound damper ****.

I upgraded to the 13" Bitbo's from DK Customs. I'm really impressed!
