Kawasaki Vaquero: Progressive 430 Shock

Kawasaki Vaquero Shock

The new Kawasaki Vaquero has already caught the eye of more than a few hard core riders and customizers as well as the suspension go-to guys at Progressive.

Renowned for their line of high performance motorcycle shocks and fork spring kits, Progressive Suspension has given the Stylish Vaquero the one thing it lacked, a lower stance.

The 430 Series shock not only sits an inch lower on the Kawasaki metric cruiser, but utilizes a high pressure gas mono tube design with deflective disk damping to insure high performance ride control. Threaded pre-load adjusters allow for tool-less adjustment, and effortless tuning of ride quality as well as adjusting to changing loads.

Machined aluminum Shock spring perches and street rod styling of the 430 Series Shocks are complimented by smooth lines and a polished chrome body. Available in chrome or contrast cut black anodized finish to match the look of your bike.

Contact your local Progressive Suspension dealer for more information.
