Im riding a 2011 FLTRX (custom) and using the stock height monotubes now for over 2 years. Im 210 lbs and ride solo most of the time, I also have 940 rear shocks.
When I installed mine I used 1 clip (spacer) the general instruction say to use the 2 supplied but after talking to one of the progressive Techs (Frank) I ended up using only 1 it allows the bike a little SAG maybe 1' for my weight so basicly I als got a little lowering out of the kit over stock. For many riders under 250 lbs the stock suspension does not set up any sag so it is running topped out a lot of the time.
At 175 lbs if you ride solo you could probably be fine with no spacer. The c clip spacer is just a preload and will help set the SAG. If you are talking to Frank at progressive Tech support Id follow his advise he has been very helpful to me on both teh monotubes and the shocks
