Is there anyone out there by chance interested in trading standard duty Progressive 412 rear shocks for the heavy duty version? I bought my bike from a bigger guy who mostly rode two-up with his wife, so he upgraded to the heavy duty shocks. Although the shocks are great when my wife joins me for a ride, I'm about 170 lbs and commute alone on the bike daily, so I need something softer.

Yes, at least harder than I am used to (but I have never ridden another VTX).

I have 412's and I'm a big guy that likes two up, and I heard that Progressive will swap them to HD springs for $15.00. I tried it and it worked! Progressive did a great job and got them back to me with new HD springs for CHEAP! I'd recommend you call Progressive like I did and request this service. They have you get an RMA number and mail yours to them. Then once they show up they contact you for payment, and get them back within about 5-7 days. Can't beat it. I'm sure they'd do HD to standard springs for same price.
