Should I go with Progressive Monotube?
I have had my new to me 2002 Goldwing for more than 2 weeks now. I like the bike overall, it has only 24k miles and looks like new but since day one I found the suspension to leave a lot to be desired. I find the suspension pretty harsh and quite inferior to my previous bike which was a BMW K1200LT. I did bypass the ADV last week-end by adding the shim and it did improve the feeling on the front end a bit but it is still not great. After some research I found out that there were several different options to significantly improve the Goldwing stock suspension and handling like for example progressive monotube, RaceTech and Traxxion. I am not sure I am ready to shade $3k+ for the Traxxion. So I am considering the progressive monotube kit which a shop 5h from my place would install as well as replace the bearings with tapered ones for around $1k. I would like to hear from those who went that route if they liked the Progressive monotube upgrade.
