I haven't tried them but leaning that way. Most people on here have spoken highly of them though.

Any QUALITY aftermarket shock will make your bike feel much more stable and predictable. It's not to hard to out do the OEM setup

My ass! The only reason you probably don't have them is because your check card is too hot to the touch right now. Soon as that joker cools off you will get them. Then you can sell me the 440s you ordered at a discount.

What is the difference between the 444 and 944? I'm in the market and I'm interested. Thanks

2012 RG gloss black. Part of the 26" club now.
2008 fat boy. Loved her but had to let her go for the glide I've been eyeing for a while now.

I just bought a 2013 and converted toProgressive cartridges and 944's. I have only put about 120 miles on it because I have been trying to get the Madstad windshild dialed in. I am 180 lbs. The 944's were adjusted all the way to the softest setting. The softest setting felt good but I took a few hard hits on bumps so I turned 1/2 turn to firmer setting. The ride might even be a little better and I have not bottomed out again. The ride is much firmer than the 2010 SE Ultra I had before. I was a little worried it might be too stiff for the first 10 miles or so. It is going to take a long trip to really be sure but even though it is firm it doesn't feel harsh at all. The handling is a huge improvement. Turn in on corners and the way it holds through the corners is greatly improved. The bike feels completely stable and I actually prefer the ride to the softer ride of the Ultra. No dive at all under braking. I had Progressive 440's on a 2005 SEEG but I don't remember the length - 12" I think - they were a big improvement over the lowered HD shocks. The 944's feel much better to me.
