Progressive 444 shocks, 13"

Installed a set of these today. Awesome, they really smooth out the ride on the back end. Wanted to keep stock height so stayed with 444's at 13". Very happy and glad to be rid of the stock rear air shocks.
BTW it took all of 30 minutes to install. Mike

Thinking of going this way on my 09, just coming up on 50k miles and the stock shocks are about done in. These progressives are pricey however how are the adjustments? Have you tried 2 up or just solo? I also want to keep the bike at the same stock height, no lowering for me.

I have the older 13inch 440's on my RG and the ride in NICE! It sure beats the stock 12 inch air shocks.

so if these shocks are 13" how can they make the bike sit 1" lower? I dont want it to be any lower than stock?

I did the 12.5 on my '13 RG Custom. The height is the same as my stock 12" air shocks. The ride is amazing. Bumps that brought me off the seat, are smooth as glass now. They really do make it a completely different ride.
It takes 2 minutes to set the sag on it! Best upgrade for the money on rideability. (not sure that's a real word, but you get the gist)
