No-one is swapping out their stock shocks!!!

Posted in the Wanted(buy or trade) section with no response. All the Ultra riders must love the 13" OEM shocks!
I really would hate to pay the MOCO for marginal shock absorbers. Want to do either Legend Revo or Ohlins but just can't right now. How about it? Anybody?

WTB: 13" OEM shock absorbers
Looking for zero or low mileage(under 500 miles) OEM takeoff 13" shocks from 2019 Road Glide Ultra or Ultra Classic

I have shocks off my 17 RGU with about 1000 miles on them if they would work on your 19.

I want the 13" premium off a 2019 RGU or Ultra Classic for my 2018 RGS. They will give me an extra inch of travel over the 12" stock shocks that are on the bike now. Hoping to catch someone BEFORE they throw theirs away. Looking for an inexpensive temporary ride "improvement" until I can really upgrade.
(I know, I know...putting any HD shock on would hardly be an "improvement.")

The factory shocks worked just fine for me and wife had no complains before we added the side car. And they work just fine with it. I have in the past tried some others but found little difference.
But then again so did the seat that many seem to think is defective.
Just come down to what works for you.

I traded my 2011 CVO Road glide Ultra for this 2018 RGS. I felt the same way as you regarding shocks and seat. The original air shocks were still working with 64,000 miles on them. No air leaks or oil leaks. I want an economical way to get the extra inch of travel necessary to not scrape floorboards on a regular basis.

Thanks Stoic Joker. Exactly what I am looking for. Just a little more money than I want to spend.
