A very satisfied dealer

A customer who purchased his JRi Harley Shocks through his local dealer recently wrote to tell us what his dealer had to say after installing 2 sets on his and his fathers machines.

"Both bikes are ready to go, work is all complete. I love those rear shocks, you did a good job with your research. We were always pushing the progressive rear shocks but now we will be pushing the JRi Shocks because they are much better"


If you ride on JRi Shocks we'd love to hear from you as well! You can post a review on our website here:

Compliant, comfortable ride...

"I installed them, left the spring preload as received, verified the sweep valve was 30 clicks out and took a ride. Unbelievable improvement but still just a tad “stiff” for solo. I’ve ended up with the setting at 25 clicks and man does it feel good. Compliant comfortable ride, still leans in good, chassis remains stable at higher speeds, no wallowing etc. So…you nailed it on set-up. I thought you might like to hear all of this."

I'm thinking I need to make some adjustments to mine as they still feel really stiff. Don't get me wrong, they are better than the stock ones but I can still feel every bump as it comes back and hits right in the tail bone. I've left the spring tension where it was when I got them but maybe it's time to start playing with the sweep valve and see what that does..

TLar1540 give our motorcycle market manager Tige Daane a call or drop him an email when you get a free minute. It does sound like you need to make a few adjustments but he can help you fine tune it to make the ride even better. Where did you purchase them from and do you know what spring rate you have? 704-360-5863 or [email protected]

Thanks!

I purchased them from Motorcycle Metal last year. Not real sure what the spring rating is that was installed. I thought I saved a copy of the build sheet I was asked to complete but I can't seem to find it.. I will send a message to him and see what he says.

Thanks,

Spent the last few days chatting with Tige and he did a fantastic job of helping me with getting the shocks dialed in. They are now setup better then they ever were & the suspension feels so much better than it ever has.. If anyone has issues like I did, I would advise talking with Tige, he did a fantastic job in getting my issues resolved..
My wife & I did a 100 mile ride last night and we felt better than we ever had once we were done. I will be honest and say that I was looking for different shocks when I ran across this thread. After talking with Tige, taking measurements and giving him the weights of my wife & I, he got us dialed in.. We changed the spring tension and the damper settings and that made all the difference in the world.. Thanks for giving me Tige's contact info, he helped us out allot.
