New 14" Pro Action shocks/1" lowering blocks
Well, after reading a billion threads on changing 17-19 RGS shocks or not or too, and which ones and on and on and on I figured I would just pull the trigger and see what happens. Pretty sure no one can tell my butt which ones are best but me. I have about 2k miles on the stockers now. I ride hard and fast but requested a plush ride to see how it works out with passenger. I can always stiffen them up. I go 200lbs and wife is 150 so they say they will be stiff for solo and that is perfect......I think. I'm 5'10" with longer legs so height is not going to be an issue. Currently have 19 RGS.
Start off by saying I don't hate the so called "premium" shocks. They are not as cushy ride as some I've had but don't really think you can expect a cushy ride with low profile tires and lowered ride. I like my thin solo seat(wide tripper) and wife is not a fan of the passenger pad so instead of always riding with the couch I figured I would try plus shocks first.
I decided on the longer shocks, 14's with lowering blocks. Kit is from DK Custom. My main goal is to make it good for old lady with thinner pad. I've ridden all kinds of Harleys and some had no shocks at all so I can live with a little bumpy ride as long as I get to keep my solo seat (except for long distance rides).
As soon as shocks get here I will get them on then update how it's going.
I have to admit, I have drank the cool aid before and been disappointed but with so many liking upgraded shocks I figure it's worth a try.
Update in a week or so.
