  1. *** The Shop ~ I NEED URGENT MOTORCYCLE HELP!! ***
    So I just got a 2003 VTX 1800C. The guy I bought it from said that progressive springs were installed in the front and I noticed it bottoms out and is very jarring when going over anything but the smallest of bumps. When resting, the forks are compressed to the point where there is only about 2...
  2. Suspension / Frame / Body
    So when I bought my bike, 02 1800, the suspension was stock, pretty beat up. So I went with Progressive shocks and springs as the replacement. The rear absorbs impact pretty well after fine tuning the preload however, the front is still extremely jarring when hitting any kind of bump. It’s...

    I’m going to be getting a custom rear fender soon and I want to be able to lower the rear of the bike a little bit. Enough to make a difference In height but also still perform well. Does anyone know if 11 inch shocks would be too short and where I would be able to find a set that would fit an...

    Hi, everyone. This is my very first post on the VTX Café. I have formerly been a part of the VT Café, but I just got rid of my VT1300CT, and I bought a 2006 VTX 1300R.

    A few days ago I removed my Tsukayu fiberglass fairing, complete with amplifier and (2) 6x9 speakers. It felt like it weighed a ton. I put it on the bathroom scale and it actually weighs 34 pounds. I rode the bike for a couple of miles without the fairing, and the front suspension felt more...

    I think my VTX1300R is a bit harsh when going over potholes or rr tracks, places where you can't avoid a bump. I am thinking I would like to improve the ride, and the handling. I am thinking of changing the stok shocks to Progressive 412 HD 12" shocks, and changing to their fork springs as well...

  8. Suspension / Frame / Body
    I have recently seen this on Ebay and from the price it appears to be very competitive. I do not know a lot about air suspension and found posts about Barons and Kewl metal air and have seen none on Arnott® VTX Air Suspension System...

    Hello all, I have a quick question for everyone; hopefully this is as simple as I think. :) As some might know (I've been posting a lot with random questions), I picked up a 2008 VTX1300R about 2 months ago now. I spend quite a bit of time riding solo but I also spend time riding with my...
