Progressive Fork Springs (11-1126)
I have used these fork springs on a few of my bikes and would use them again. The benefit is most noticeable when rebuilding the forks of an older bike with a soft or mushy front end. The springs are very easy to install, simply drop in place of the original. My particular applications required no additional shimming or spacing. Now, whenever I need to replace an old leaking set of fork seals I replace the springs as well. The cost is very reasonable and varies from around $65-$100 depending on which bike model application you are buying. If you are planning on rebuilding your forks, in addition to replacing the seals and fork oil, I would recommend dropping a fresh set of these springs in as well. The difference will be noticed not only under extreme conditions such as hard braking or cornering but also in the overall feel of the bike during every day cruising.

Progressive Improvement
The bike was in rehab, it had been abused. I nursed it back to health. Drive shaft, rear diff, fuel pump. You know, the usual results of a rock-n-roll lifestyle will wear you down over time. This beemer was over twenty years old, yet was calling for the open road . . .

But once on the road again she handled like a sloppy drunk. What can I say, she'd been ridden hard and put up wet. New sneakers and new suspension were just what the doctor ordered.

There were aftermarket progressively wound springs in there already, but after twenty years they were collapsed. I slipped them out and put these new ones in and let's just say it was back to rock-n-roll again.

The bike handles so much better, and this isn't the first pair of Progressive Suspension's springs I purchased. It's probably the fifth or sixth pair as over the years I have found their products to be the answer to my motorcycle handling woes, whether on the street or on the dirt.

Just get 'em. You won't be dissappointed.

excellent upgrade
our v-star 650 was long overdue for a fork oil change &
it's handling was becoming too soft up front. these new
springs work much better than stock with better control
& still a comfortable ride. be sure to follow the instructions
because the fork oil level setting is different with the new
springs & spacers.

It really does fit.
First off, this product #58967 WILL fit the 2007 Honda Aero. Despite what the fitment says. The original springs are 14.5" in length and the Progressive springs are 18". The difference comes into play with the spacer. The original spacer is about 11" long and the one that you put back into the forks is only 3.20" for the 2007 Honda Aero. I would highley recommend this upgrade to your front suspension. Also, you might want to get a set of progressive rear shocks. Just a suggestion.

once again
I recondition 5-10 older bikes each year, more often than not i'll throw a set of Progressive fork springs in. They restore ride height and eliminates that squishy, bouncy, 30 year old ride.

Awesome Suspension for a Great Price
These springs from Progressive (11-1126) are a huge upgrade from stock on my '02 Honda Spirit Shadow VT1100C. Nose diving on deceleration or stopping is no longer an issue. The directions included as well as following the Honda manual make this swap a breeze. I installed them with new spacers, 15W fork oil and new seals, and I love them already. I highly recommend these springs for anyone looking to improve their ride and handling.
