    Hi all 
    I have just purchased progressive ps-31-2500  for front forks on my 2005 Flhpei ,after opening package found 2012 on the mono tubes .
    Email progressive USA and have had no reply. 
    If this is the date of manufacture than this would mean they are 9 years old !
    Not sure but to me it seem too long for a gas cartridge to be sitting around .
    Any ideas

    My bike is a bit newer, but I dont think a lot changed in 10 years. I looked at the Progressive suspension and spoke to the Harley dealer about them as it was an option upgrade. The long and short was I ended up going for Legend cartridges there seemed a bit more information around about them. The feedback that I got about the Progressive cartridges was the springs are a bit heavy, a bit heavier than the Legend ones. In saying that the Legend spring are too hard for my liking on the Dyna. I weigh 85kg, it would probably be great if I weighed another 20kg. They did make a massive difference to the handling buy did make the ride a bit harsh. If I had my time again I would possibly look at gold valves and separate springs to match. I used these on my DR, similar design to Harley and it made that old big feel like my Versys 1000 up front.

    Leachy , over the years I've stuffed around on the front fork spring rate & damping.
    but after I went to an expert to work out spring & damping for me personally. thats only way to go, but costs a bit more.
