Legend Suspension Heads up
Hey everyone, just thought I'd give you all a heads up on my suspension change. I went with Legend after lots of research and reviews and talking to dealer techs all over the country when I travelled for work. The bike is a 2014 Electra Glide Ultra. I went with the standard height rear Revo-A's and could not be happier. They are so far superior to the OEM air junk. Super easy preload adjustment (turn the spring) and an adjustable rebound lets you dial these babies in for your loads, though I find that once set up for the Tour Pack and riding two up, I'm very happy when I Take the Tour Pack off and ride solo too.
Now for the front. Installed Standard height Axeo's NOT the lowered ones. The ride is exceptional, stability and handling improved noticeably, AHHH but the downside NOT explained by anyone in writing or otherwise. You lose about 1.5-2 inches of height up front. I am dragging my jiffy stand riding like I always did and it didn't use to drag. I'm talking about round-abouts and normal corners, not riding the Tail of the Dragon (which I guess I'd better avoid now) I thought I was just being a touch more aggressive due to the ride improvement until I did my 50K oil change. I couldn't get the oil pan I have always used under the bike. Then Looked at the slider covers and the bottom of it was down on the pin stripe line instead of level with the top of the fender like they used to be. I called Legend and texted back and forth several times and they basically told me there was nothing they could or would do because it was normal. They explained their SAG is different then the OEM to get their ride quality. I'm pissed that I lost lean angle, especially since it does ride and handle so much better.
I spent way to much to change them out to something else and since the ride is amazing I'm gonna live with it, Just thought anyone considering the Axeo front suspension from Legend ought to know what they are going to experience.
Blessed beyond measure.
