Ive read in several posts people talking about using the progressive 465 in order to increase clearance for cornering. From what I can find the shock only comes in 1 inch shorter than stock and stock length.
Not understanding how it increases clearance if its the same length as stock.
Can nyone shed any light ?
I need to increase my cornering clearance on my 08 kingpin
Only real way of increasing clearance is to get an XR XC XCT type bike, much more clearance as well as rear suspension travel.
I love my Vegas and ride it fairly hard and enjoy cornering.
The 465 gets the rear suspension working better, tracks truer and with sag set correctly or a bit harder, mines set for two-up, the you will gain a little.
My biggest gain came from shifting my weight more and putting more thought into lines, corner entry speed, on known roads.
Also my peg scrapers are long gone never to return and the ends on my pegs are nearly gone.
My Freedom Performance pipe scrapes on rh side but it gradually wearing down.
Having sticky Pirelli Night Dragons dont help either!
Well actually they do.
A good shock set up right and a smooth riding style,
Slow in-fast out on unknown bends is the best we gonna get on our cruisers short of buying a CrossRoads or a Ducati.
Wonders if a lowering link made to raise an inch instead of drop would work?
