LA PALMA, Calif. -- The Harley-Davidson Sportster does not feature the most advanced suspension components. In addition to the basic twin shocks out back, a primitive damper rod fork doesn't impress discriminating riders. What is new is Progressive’s latest Monotube Fork Cartridge Kit.

Promising the same performance improvements as Progressive’s range of high-quality shocks, the Monotube cartridges bring modern gas-charged performance to the Sportster. In combination with new fork springs, the kit improves damping control for better ride comfort, reduced brake dive and vastly improved cornering stability.

The Monotube kit is available for most 2004 and newer Sportsters for a starting retail price of $249.95.
