Legend Suspensions

All-New Legend Revo-A Coil Design for M-8 Softail

Available in 12.5", 13" and 13.5" standard (450) or heavy-duty (550) applications, Sturgis, SD based Legend Suspensions says the Revo-A coil spring "provides superior ride comfort, improved performance and increased resistance to bottoming for all day comfort."

It delivers "optimum" adjustable rebound performance that can be "fine-tuned for any given rider weight, personal ride preference or style. Adjustable preload for rider setup also allows for minimal preload adjustment when changing between rider weights and loads."

Seven external knob adjustments allow fine-tuning of rebound, utilizing needle valve technology to adapt to the riding style. Low friction top and bottom sleeve bearings ease installation and allows the shock to float in its mount and avoid "shock bind."

The hard anodized, machined billet aluminum 46 mm mono tube utilizes a lightweight high flow piston design "for improved fluid flow - resulting in unmatched handling and bike control." 

The hard chromed shaft is 14% larger for increased strength and a high-quality chrome-silicon spring means "consistent spring rate for the life of the motorcycle." An internal floating nitrogen piston ensures consistent damping performance with deflective disc valving that self-adjusts to frequency and ensures controlled performance.

Legend's durable and low friction sealing system and sliding bearings "provide improved performance and feel." Available in black Type III hard coat anodize, the Revo-A is sold as a mono shock, with an included preload wrench. Revo-A easily replaces the stock shock and mounts with original OEM hardware.

Designed for 2018-2023 Softails, Legend says it handmakes these shocks at its Sturgis, SD facility. Backed by a lifetime warranty, for optimum performance, Legend recommends use with the Legend Axeo front suspension.

"Heavy-duty applications are recommended for 350 lb+ rider and passenger total weight. Also consider heavy-duty if the majority of your riding is two-up with a passenger and/or gear; 13" is standard length for FLHC/FXFB/FXLRS/FXLRST."
