What Length shock?

I am sure this has been asked before but need some help. I have a 13 RGC and looking to put progressive 444 shocks on. I ride solo 70% of time. I weigh 215 and wife is 120. I Have monotube -2 up front. I am on stock air shocks now. Do you think the 11.5" will give me enough suspension? I like the lowered look. Thanks for your help.

Although these shocks will give a better ride than stock, there is not much working room in a shock this short. Adjustment is critical and even a quarter turn will make a big difference.

Might have to hit you guys up for a pair. May have to wait till Sturgis unless you have a veteran or firefighter discount now

my experience has been anytime you get much below 77mm in stroke length you are trading ride quality for looks , I'd look at the specs on stroke length on the 444's before deciding
