NEW FOR 2016: Fork Spring Kit and Fork Cartridge Kit for 2016+ Sportster 48 models

Now available for 2016+ HD Forty-Eight models are our Fork Spring Kit and Fork Cartridge Kit. The ‘Original’ Progressive Rate Fork Springs soak up the small road bumps, yet are firm enough to absorb the molar-rattling ones. Spring rates have been chosen to reduce front end “dive” during braking, yet still provide excellent ride comfort. Better yet, we warranty our fork springs for life! Progressive Rate Fork Springs have several advantages over straight rate springs. A Progressive Rate Spring has the advantage of a rising rate resistance to compression. The benefit of this is that the spring can be soft enough at the start of the travel to offer a “plush” ride, yet be firm enough at the end of the travel to soak up the big bumps.¬†Progressive Suspension has gone back to the drawing board and created a state of the art Fork Cartridge Kit designed to outperform everything on the market.¬† Our new asymmetrical design places a preload adjuster over a progressive rate spring in one leg and an aluminum bodied, sealed cartridge damper on the other. The result is superior damping and ride control combined with tunable preload and a new benchmark for high performance suspension on the Forty-Eight platform. Can be installed in either configuration, Standard or 1″ low available for 2016+ Forty-Eight applications.
