rear shocks

Are there any shocks besides air suspension that can be adjusted to go from 1 up to 2up without pulling saddlebag bag to get at them? Went to adjust my air on my pos stock shocks and saddlebag just about fell to ground and pulled my saddlebag lights wiring out of wiring connection. Was thinking about the cvo shocks or progressives

I would believe that pulling the saddlebags would be the only way to adjust any adjustable rear shocks that are on the market. I have the saddlebag guard rails that go around the saddlebags so that takes the worry out of dropping a bag or losing a bag on the road due to pin failure. There are some that have relocated the air valve to allow better access.

I am going to putting on the EZ Air system easy to check, easy to fill. I also swap between 1 and 2 up a lot.

Update: just purchased progressive 444 12" shocks, hoping to set them in between 1 and 2 up.buddy does it with his cvo shocks, so hopefully it will work. Question is if i like these , i will be selling stock 12" airs, so how do you ship the air shocks without having oil run out pf them?

use a brass fitting cap that you can find at lowes, home depot, etc....

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