We installed the Ohlin's FKS 226 Harley NIX 22 Front Cartridge Kit on my 2014 Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special. After riding my Harley with the newly installed Ohlin's front suspension on a 10-day, 4,000-mile road trip, and on many different road surfaces, I can highly recommend this suspension and decided to carry Ohlin's right in the Law Abiding Biker Store. In this tutorial video, we show you exactly how to install Ohlin's front suspension and how to adjust things so you have the proper preload and proper rebound dampening. (see detailed install video below)
I was not happy with the overall ride of my 2014 Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special, which came with the standard front suspension Harley has used for many years now on its touring models, which has no adjustments. Unfortunately, it is what it is. I wanted a smoother ride, better cornering abilities, and adjustable preload and dampening, all of which the Ohlin's FKS 226 Harley NIX 22 Front Cartridge Kit has! Upon ordering from the Law Abiding Biker Store, you'll get to choose an Ohlin's front suspension spring that will be adequate for your particular weight.
I was absolutely blown away at how much smother my Harley rode and cornered after installing Ohlin's front suspension! I did not realize what a difference good front suspension would make! Wow, it was more than I even expected and I highly recommend upgrading your front Harley suspension to Ohlin's! It even got rid of most of the bagger wobble while cornering at faster speeds. My Harley just rode like a completely different bike!
There are several different models of Ohlin's suspension in the Law Abiding Biker Store with different price points and options. It will all depend on your wants and needs.
