I have an 04 1800 NEO.
Planning to put Progressive Front Springs and 11 inch 412 shocks.
Some people say the springs will raise the front end 1 inch and the 11" shocks will be too short. Also, some say the handling will be seriously compromised.

I typically do not go over 75 MPH so I'm not too worried about the handling at higher speeds.

Does anyone have experience with this mod on a NEO?
Or any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.

Bareass' site has the pics of how much the front end will go up. It is only a half inch with Progressive springs. http://www.bareasschoppers.com/
11inch should be OK, it is OK on the other 2 bikes and by going with Progressive shocks the handling will be better. 8)

I just put Harley Davidson air shocks made by Honda :shock: and adapted them to fit my Honda VTX 1800R :) . The handling is night and day different over the stock shocks, the ride is better too..
