Rear Shocks

Does anyone know what the part number is, for the stock 13" air shocks?

Thanks.

in 2010 it was 54565-09. haven't heard that they've changed them since so guessing it's still the same.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Thanks! My buddy wants to switch out the 12's on his FLTRX for a set of 13's.

He would be better off to go with the Progressive 940's. Keeps the stock ride height with the travel of the 13's. Best of both worlds and much better than the harley 13 inch air shock.

shoot, instead of buying them, he could probably find at least a dozen people who would be willing to trade their 13s for his 12s.

but like dave says, there are better options out there.

Ok thanks, I'll pass that along. Ride height is part of the problem as we both tend to scape our floor boards / exhaust on really technical roads. He's also not a fan of the ride quality, as you mentioned.
