Honda's flagship GL1800 (Gold Wing!) gets a little front-end handling help from Progressive Suspension's new high-performance monotube cartridge fork kit.
The kit features a set of gas-charged monotube dampers and a pair fork springs custom-tuned for the Gold Wing that replace the antiquated open bath internals of the stock fork.
Monotube style damping improves ride comfort as well as improving front end stability, cornering and bottoming control, Progressive says. The kit fits 2001-2012 Honda Gold Wings, and replaces most of the internal parts of the fork. No modifications are reportedly required to install and the fork retains the factory anti-dive function. Progressive Suspension stands behind its fork cartridge kits with a limited lifetime warranty. The kit retails for $339.99.
