I was wondering who on here owns a vulcan 2000 that installed the progressive replacement rear shock? I wanted to hear impressions about the progressive shock vs. the stock shock..

They dont give hardly any info as to price or any detailed info on the construction of their shock ..ohlins i mean.. you might want to give progressive a look or at least a read. they give very detailed info on their springs,oil system etc...

I would talk to the folks at Works Performance. They made me a pair of Billet Trackers for my Mean Streak. Big improvement over stock.
I seen a set of WORKS on ebay for like $600 or more for the vn2k. I seen a progressive on phatperformanceparts.com for $349

ill have to give them a call and see what they charge for a custom made rear shock. if your looking for something to read. give a read to this http://www.progressivesuspension.com/pdfs/PSI2007metricCatalog.pdf
I dont know anything about shocks. so i dont know if what they are saying about their shock means they are good or less than good compared to WORKS..? I guess itmight comes down too how much im willing to spend for a single shock.. 8)

does anyone know the length of the stroke of the oem rear shock on the VN2000 I know they say wheel travel is 100mm or 4 inches, but i can't find any specs on the oem shock.

This company was recently looking for a test V2K to develop a new air shock for the VN2000. Might be a good way to get a free or reduced cost air shock for someone with a V2K willing to be a guinea pig. The only downside is you would have to get the bike to Phoenix, AZ.
