When I spoke with a technician at Ricor they did recommend that I start with the stock springs. However, he did say they would probably work well with the Progressive springs. When speaking to progressive; they did not admit to any testing with the Ricor; but they did speak of another valve(the name escapes me at the moment) that they had worked with and it had performed well. I opted to start with the progressive rate springs and if I felt I needed something that would improve the suspension in rougher terrain I'd try the Ricor's. I keep things pretty slow on the back roads, so for now, the Progressives with the current preload setting are more than adequate.

All I do is muddle thru life, making sense of only a portion of it.
