Just bought 2001 GL1800. Looking forward to riding to east coast this summer. Just bought progressive suspension for front end. Yet to install. Comments on that product??

Hand Grips - Would like to replace but can't find right length. Looking for the right length (150mm/6" long). Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to you from Mississippi. I still have the stock suspension in my 2010 but have heard from those who changed to progressive and they like the upgrade.

I'm not sure about changing the hand grips, but there are risers available that are adjustable and bring the bars up and back. I have had that on mine and it brought them to the right spot for me.
