« on: February 02, 2018, 11:01:13 AM »
was wanting some feedback on if the poly - urethane cush drive replacement for the Harley ones are worth using and which brands are any good

AlloyArt  makes a nice one.   That is what I would suggest.

x2 on the alloy art, huge improvement over stock
If you don't have a sense of humor you probably have no sense at all.

What improvement we talking about?
Harder equals more engine pulses felt. how does going harder material help?
Or is this just for longevity purposes?
Just curious.
I'm not here cause of a path before me, Im here cause of the burnout left behind

I guess my butt is just not that sensitive. Maybe it needs calibration.  I replaced the stock cush drive because using the method described in the shop manual I had too much movement. Put the new one in and while it is harder and new, I really can't tell any difference in how it rode. Had 50,000+ miles on the stock original one.
