No, I've been kicking it around. I understand there made by KYB, at least that's what the parts guy told me. I've heard from several guys running them & they like the way they work. Much better that stock. BUT, the thing I have a problem with is that one shock dampens & the other is rebound. HD has beefed up the swing arm.

Don't know what their price point is, but I cannot say enough about my 440's compared to that air crap... bike is a different (way better) animal.

Hmm, looks like they are a combo air and spring shock, because they still use air.

Mike,

Yeah I am. PM and let me know how much he wants for them. Why did he switch them out?

Thanks,

YELLOWBIRD
