In one word< incredible!!
Because I was upgrading from the original, standard rear suspension on a 2007 Harley Davidson Sportster 1200XL Low That happens to have literally only 2000 miles on it. I was looking for an entry-level shock to increase performance a little. Price was a big factor to me, Although I did get him an amazing price compared to other places selling this exact same set for hundreds more 600 was a bit muchHowever after reading the reviews extensively I decided to pull the trigger on the 490 It's a few hundred dollars more than 412 series however it is packed full of better technology and is a sports series shock which I automatically assumed would be better for Sportster style bike. Man was I right!! The difference in the Ride and handling of my bike is not even comparable! Whether I am aggressively snapping corners or running 100 down the freeway, These shocks can take anything you throw at them. I had absolutely no idea how horrible stock Harley suspension really is. I weigh 185 pounds and with an additional rider (2 up that is) weighing 110 pounds For a total of 295 LB Plus gear, I still have no problem banking corners Or running down the freeway at 80mph. I absolutely recommend these! I only have one thing left to do the Progressive Gas-Charged Fork Kit!!!
