Although certainly not a stranger to high performance suspension, the folks at Progressive have taken their craft to the next level with the 970 Series Piggyback shocks and are now building it for the Harley V-Rod. Inspired by racers, riders and guys that demand more of their bikes than weekend coffee runs, the hand built in the USA, 970 Series shocks combine a high pressure gas monotube design with deflective disc damping routed through two unique circuits and adjustable for compression damping via an easily accessible knob.
Techy features include a shock body and piggyback that are both coated internally to reduce friction and then capped with a forged aluminum upper. The shock is wrapped with a progressive rate coil spring that can be fine tuned via threaded preload adjusters to suit a riders weight and riding style (we like them firm in the corners!). Available in 12.5” (318mm) or 13” (330mm) in black or bronze anodizing. Fitment for 2007-2014 V-Rod, VRSCA, VRSCD, VRSCAW, VRSCX, VRSCDX and VRSCF.
