I found my stock shocks to be too stiff, and the bike a bit tall, so I bought progressive 412 shocks, 11.5 long. I like the lowered stance, but they are not much softer than the stock shocks. Should I have gone for the 440 progressives? Does anybody know the spring rate for the standard, not heavy, duty 412? I see that progressive offers springs for the 412 in 70/120, 90/130, 115/55, 90/130, and 105/150. If I knew what came on the 412 standard, then perhaps I could order some softer springs. I live in New England, where the roads are hilly and curvy, which is great fun, but the surface is often poor, due to the frost heaving the roads in the changing seasons. The rough roads are killing my back. This bike is much stiffer than my harley or my kawasakis, and I could use some relief. Thanks.
