Hey fellaz, just finished up a new product spotlight on the Twin Shocks by JRi. Let me know what ya think. For the full spotlight which includes the my little intro, photos, video, and additional comments/thoughts... visit http://myroadglide.com/myroadglide-product-spotlight-jri-harley-davidson-twin-shocks/

DETAILS - The JRi Harley Davidson Twin Shocks featured in this product spotlight are single adjustable rear shocks designed for Harley touring bikes. The shocks, which are available in two lengths (12″ & 13″), are designed and hand assembled in the US using the highest quality materials available. Each JRi shock is custom valved and sprung to the customer’s weight and riding profile. The top of the shock features a preload collar, which allows the rider to adjust the shocks sag. Atop the preload collar is a locking collar. The hand tightened locking collar is designed to keep the preload collar in place after any adjustments to the shocks preload have been made. Located at the bottom of the shock is a red sweep valve which can be turned by hand and adjusts the shock’s compression and rebound. Turn the sweep valve to the right (clockwise) and the shocks rebound stiffens. Turn the valve to the left (counter clockwise) and shocks rebound softens. All adjustments can be made while the shock is on the bike. JRi’s single adjustable Twin Shocks retail for approximately $700-$1,000, depending on the retailer.

THOUGHTS - After a few hundred miles and some minor adjustments to the suspensions settings, the Twin Shocks by JRi proved to be a wise, and may I add comfortable, addition to my Road Glide. The shocks provided a noticeable improvement over the stock Harley suspension in both the absorption and handling arenas. The customer support received from JRi was top-notch, and proved to be invaluable during the installation and post install adjustments of the shocks. If you’re in the market for some new rear shocks, definitely consider JRi. You’ll have peace of mind knowing the shocks on your bike were built by hand, to your specs, using race track proven technology designed by industry veterans.
Thanks, Vic

JRi shocks

Hopefully will have the installed in the next month or so. Ive done a lot of research on these and i think they will provide a better ride than the progressive shocks or any other aftermarket company. Should be ordering them here in next couple of weeks will let you know how they perform

Had them on the last glide. They were much better than stock. I am getting teh new Shotgun Shock system (air ride with adjustable ride height and rebound)installed this weekend. I will obviously post a thread about the product once I get it installed. I am excited as I ran this shock on my softail and it was far and above the best air ride system that I tried and I tried quite a few.

Right now I am running Works Performance 12.5"'s that I got off a forum member. They ride about the same as the JRI's did. Cost is pretty much the same too although they do not have the rebound adjuster that the JRI's do.
