Ohlin/JRI

I am considering getting some ohlin or JRi shocks. The website everyone uses for these products confuses the hell out of me. So I filled out the form and within minutes got an email with the form I filled out in it. So now what?

If it was Motorcycle Metal, just give Howard a call, much easier.

sit back, and enjoy the ride, make sure your phone is fully charged! but it is worth the time if you are truly interested in what he has to say

2013 RGU, black of course....

I am in Germany so long phone calls could cost as much as the shocks

Ok got my email from Howard, he was having difficulties getting through my spam filter.

So I have been doing some reading here and there and I am at a decision point, 12" or 13".... I am thinking 12" since I never ride 2 up and likely will not and I am a feather weight. What do you all think 12 or 13?

I talked to Howard for about 30 minutes Friday morning. Placed my order and went to BofA to make a deposit to him. My JRI 13" B shocks ship tomorrow!!

I went with the 13" shocks because the sag on them will put me at almost the exact same ride height as the stockers. The 12" would lower the ride height a bit.

As Howard says, "Tape a $100 bill to your forehead and walk in a bar. Doesn't matter if you're running a lowered bike or a stock height bike. You'll get laid either way." (I'm old enough to know that )

2014 Street Glide Special, Vivid Black, TTS, Ness inverted a/c, Jackpot 2-1-2 head pipe, Crusher Mellow slip-ons, dyno tuned, JRI shocks.

i went with the JRI A 12" for my 2010 FLTRX & still in process of completing rear tire install. One difference i noticed between the OEM airshocks mounts & the JRi A is the narrower upper lug attach of the JRI A top mount point. the hog OEM has more thickness/rubber mount surface in the cross section of top attach point of shock body.
Need to call howard & see what he recommends for shimming so the shock body is not kicked inboard/outboard direction with relation of top to bottom attachments. pICKED up some grade 8 washers but want to ensure i mount these babies properly.
what has anyone else done to install JRI A's from stock OEM conversion?

Please read the directions with pictures that I sent you at the same time I sent you your invoice with tracking number when your shocks were shipped. Amy does the complete install and all you have to do is follow the pictures and read the words (& not looking at her rear). This Unofficial Installation Guide covers everything you will need to know. If you did not keep it please e-Mail me & I will send you it again.
