They stopped the pain in my lower back...

I bought a pair at the Dragon Tail and hooked up in the turns more than I can imagine. They also stopped the pain in my lower back when I bottomed out the stock POS shocks Harley puts on the Factory Road Glide Screaming Eagle. Now this Eagle flies with control around corners and over bumps without being noticed. I looked at Ohlin and I bought JRI. I would recommend them to any bike owner not matter the brand. Thank you Marcus McBain. - Lee

My wife wasn't sure she wanted to ride anymore..

I have a ’09 CVO Road Glide and after the first few times riding it, my wife wasn’t sure if she wanted to ride anymore. After putting on JRi shocks for Harley, she was mad because I waited so long to install them. They were easy to put on, aesthetically pleasing to the eye and the ride…..is like no other. It really feels like another bike. I’m having to learn how to ride again because I have been riding what felt like a hard tail. I’m pretty hard to please to the point of selling this bike because of the ride. I would recommend to anyone, especially Harley to use these shocks. 5 stars! - Mark

I am a very satisfied customer

I am not writing this post to tell you about my racing accomplishments this past weekend. I am not even a member of a race team, professional or amateur. I don't have any medals or awards to show myself standing in victory lane. What I am though is a very satisfied Harley owner with a pair of JRi Adjustable Harley Shocks installed. I can tell you that I have had your shocks on my bike for 26K+ miles now and the last 1,800 miles were spent this last week riding everything from tight twisty back roads to long straight highways and everything in between and your shocks absorbed every bump, ripple and pot hole without missing a beat. My Street Glide has never ridden smoother than when I went to JRi Shocks.

Worth Every Penny!

My Wife rides a 2004 Electra Glide Classic with the tour pac etc. intact and she impresses most when they see her small frame get off that big bagger, so she always draws attention wherever we go. And with over 60,000 miles on it, it doesn’t just sit in the garage. She used to have the OEM Harley Davidson 3/4″ Lowered air shocks on her bike with a narrow seat so she could get her feet on the ground and people are always coming over to her asking about her suspension and how she gets her feet on the ground with such a large bike. The funny thing was though, that she never really realized her bike had suspension until she put on your JRI 12″ single adjustable shocks. Not only could she get her feet on the ground even better than the Harley lowered shock, but she finally realized she had suspension! Now when we go over rough pavement or a large bump, I will ask her how did they do? Her response is… (with a huge smile on her face) what bump? The difference is truly day and night between the JRI shocks and the OEM Harley Shocks… If you ask her if the JRI shocks were worth the price, she will tell you EVERY PENNY! I’m going to be replacing my so called “Premium Ride” (not…) Hand-Adjustable Harley Davidson Touring Shocks on my 2010 HD Limited with JRI’s at Daytona Bike week in March. Are we fans? You bet! She recommends these shocks to everyone she meets. A huge 5 stars! BTW, customer service from JRI has also been outstanding. -Rich

I love the JRIs on my RGU. My butt thanks me every time I ride.
I go from riding Lymey with air ride to the RGU with JRIs and its a night & day difference. Well worth the $$$$!!!

Depends on your weight and if/how often you carry a passenger. If you'd like to PM us info on weight and passenger weight and how often you ride 2 up vs single.

Most likely we'd recommend the 12" single adjustable with either a 23 or 25 nm spring.

Thanks!

"My Opinion Should Count For Something"

We were recently contacted by a guy we met at Sturgis a couple of years ago who wanted to touch base about his shocks.



Dan Johnson is a farrier (horse shoer) by trade and uses his Ultraglide as his primary mode of transportation between 4 different states where he takes care of some 300 head of horses. Dan carries with him all the tools of the trade including an anvil among other things and his Harley tips the scales at 1100lbs.

In 7 years Dan has put over 300,000 miles on 2 different Harley's, regularly rides in temperatures ranging from -15 to 80+ and has used JRi Shocks for the last 53,000 of those miles and swears there is nothing else that compares.



He was gracious enough to write out a testimonial to both share his story and provide some feedback on what he has experienced since switching to JRi Shocks and you can read his whole story here:
