Re: Progressive 412 shocks

I would fix the compressor issue and go with the 416's. I put 412's on my 1200 wing, they were either too firm or not firm enough

It would sure come in handy if you do much riding at night out here in the Southwest. ;) Ron I've gone 297 miles on the main tank before opening up the cell but I've never gone more than 80 miles on the cell even though I know I can go fa...

I think Dunlop knew that they were going to drop the E-3, I had been using them on my wing since 2008 but the last two sets before the E-4's came out were the worst for cupping and noise
