Part 2 – Run Time 42 Minutes : Thanks to Progressive Suspension, high performance front suspension is now finally available for 2014 and newer Harley Davidson touring models. The Progressive monotube has combined ride smoothing Frequency Sensing Technology (FST) damper with a progressive rate spring to create a state of the art fork cartridge assembly for the late model Harley Davidson Baggers.
The Progressive monotube assembly works by having an asymmetrical layout that places a progressive rate spring in one leg and an aluminium bodied, sealed cartridge damper in the other leg. This FST valve is designed with an internal bypass which allows for superior dampening. The overall design truly sets a new benchmark for high performance front suspension.
Take the same corner with the Progressive monotube suspension. A little braking and you’ve set your line through the corner. The motorcycle will now hold that line as you accelerate out of the corner. Bob and Mark will be installing the Progressive monotube cartridge assembly into a beautiful set of Performance Machine lower sliders. Watch the next video of these two excellent products from two of the top American companies in the motorcycle industry come together. This FLH is going to handle and look amazing!
