Burly 10.5 shocks...

Just put in an Ebay bid for the Burly 10.5" shocks to replace my stock air shocks for my '07 Shark. With the 10.5's I should be flat-footed fer sure while stradling my scoot. Anyone out there have any experience with Burly shocks? If so, could ya please post up your opinions good and/or bad ...Thanks!!!

You don't say what your height is or your inseam or the seat you are using. Kinda hard to guess...JMO The shocks should come with chiropractic certificates. Best guess it will ride like a hardtail. Been there and only put about 50 miles on mine.

They will lower you but the shock travel is less than 1" so the ride will be very rough, a lot of bottoming unless you adjust them so stiff they dont move than you have a hard tail.

Burly are made by Progressive, they are a low cost version of there 412 series shock in shorter lengths.

If you really need to get it that low there are better ways to do it and preserve the ride, Im not a air system fan but Id rather go that route than a set of shocks with little to no travel and poor dampening or go with a good set of Ohlin 11.5" or Progressive 444 in 11 and at least still have some travel at the rear wheel

Not trying to add to the negative responses you've already received, but I have to agree those shocks seem a bit short, I'm running 11-3/4" and only have a little travel, but they're not bad, and I live in Florida where the roads are a lot smoother. I hope they work out for you, if not you might want to contact Bitchin Baggers, also check into a new seat and shoes with thick soles, if it's a height issue. I lowered mine cause I like the way it looks.

Well, in response to the height/inseam inquiry, I stand at 5'7 with a 30" inseam. Stradling my RG, I'm close to flat-footed, both my heels are just about an inch or so off the ground. Just lookin to be both FLAT-footed. Makes it a ton easier to manually move my scoot. Hate to have to ask for an assisted push frm the front, if ya know what I mean ...thanks guyz!

Moved to the correct subforum

Such is the rule of honor.

Another option is to have your seat modified to sit you lower.
