The latest generation of Harley-Davidson Touring models saw a number of improvements as part of Project Rushmore, including an upgrade to a 49mm fork diameter to help stabilize the front end. With any major specification change like this, all the old customization options go out the window. But Progressive Suspension has stepped in.

Progressive Suspension, which creates a variety of high performance suspension options, has released a height-adjusted solution for the new touring range. The new Fork Lowering Kit is available in one- or two-inch drops and wound in a higher spring rate to better control bottoming and brake dive. The new fork modifications provide a stylish stance and shorter reach to the ground for $118.95.
