Fltr VS fltrx

I have a question about shocks. I was told my shocks hold 30psi max on my 2008 Fltr but I have a bud who says his fltrx is 50psi max. Did they change the shocks between 2008 and 2010? If so are they the same as Street Glide shocks since they are now just as low?

If you've got the appropriate owner's manual or HD service manual for the bike, it will tell you in the manual.

I was told 50psi for my 2009. I'll have to check my manual.

2010 I believe the shocks are the same as SGs.

Yes, they changed the shocks and they are the same as the SG. In fact, the FLTRX is almost the same as a SG except for the fairing.
Wow, I am a putz, just realized I responded to a year old thread. :-)
