LA PALMA, Calif. - “True high-performance front suspension has finally made its way to the H-D Sportster line,” said Progressive Suspension in announcing its latest Monotube Fork Kit.

The company said the kit “represents the peak of front-end handling for the venerable XL and replaces the sloppy open bath internals with high-pressure gas-charged dampers.”

The new kit features a set of Monotube cartridges and custom-tuned fork springs in stock and lowered versions retailing for $339.95 and $399.95, respectively.

Monotube-style damping reportedly increases resistance to front brake dive and improves ride comfort, front-end stability, and cornering and bottoming control.

Applications are most 2004-and-newer Sportster models. No mods are required for the “relatively simple” install.
