Jake707SBFMC wants to know Dino or Syn?
I only have experience with the progressive cartridge kit but I see that FST kit is only one cartridge and the other side is still a spring loaded fork what’s that about? My glides were pre09 but their kits were two seal cartridges one for each side and they were huge improvements and in the $350 range.

That's progressives newer tech for the 14 and newer bikes. Not sure why they don't cartridge both sides like the Ohlins and Legends.
I don't know if the compression and rebound works any better with the two sides split or having them the same on both tubes..

the techs at the ohlin booth in sturgis told me to put the mono tubes from progressive in the front. They said that they were less expensive and just as good. So I did. It works great with my rear ohlins.

That in its self is quite strange. Surprised they were pitching someone else's product. I've been also researching Legend Axeo as well.
