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.

Progressive Fork Springs
I used these springs in my stripped down 1982 Honda
Goldwing. Ride height was just right and spring rate
feels very good!!! Not using any air pressure.

VTX1300 Great improvement!
With the stock springs I would get a slight wobble when no handed between 30 and 40 mph. Installing these springs complete removed this problem! When pulling my trailer, the wobble was severe,even with my hands on. That also has gone away. Just got back from a 600 mile trip, and I am extatic with these springs!

Refreshed Front End
Replaced mushy springs on 84' V65 Magna. Springs are a great addition to older bike. Feel good and much more stable ride. No issues with install. Used new PVC for each spacer. Instructions were clear and had all required details. Very Nice.

good investment
These springs made a world of difference in the ride and handling. Well worth the time and money, installation wasn't bad, as I had the front end apart for seals anyway.
