Hi All. I have just stumbled across this forum and think that it is a great idea to have an Aussie HD Forum. I ride a 2007 FXD Superglide with a few go fast mods. I look forward to contributing and learning from the forum. Thanks to Kingchops for going to the effort to put this together.
I think we are all looking forward to this site working out and having some good local coverage
Nice to hear from another well nearly FLHRC owner.As far as the standard shocks are concerned,it depends what your expectations are.Like most mass produced vehicles,things are fitted that are a compromise between function and price.The standard shocks just didn't give me the ride I wanted or expected.Most are perfectly happy with their standard setup,and I respect their choice,but for me I wanted better and I knew I could get more.Getting it at a reasonable price was what I looked at.And I can't fault the setup I have at the moment.
Can't say I notice any freat difference regards brake feel at the moment,but I don't ride the brakes that hard anyway.The bike is relatively new and so were the original hoses.It is when they get a bit older and then you add braided lines that you really notice the difference.I also had braided lines on my old EVO Heritage and it made a monumental difference to the brake feel.But if you are hard on the brakes and get them hot,that is where you will appreciate the braided lines.
