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.

I have the new shocks and they make the bike perform as it should, on rough roads no more bottoming out and the ride alone or with a passanger is awesome.

Im on my 11th Harley and over 700,000 miles on everything from Sportsters to Shovel Head Dresser to the new 2011 Road Glide and Harley has never made a decent shock or seat. Progessive suspenssion is the only shock good enough for a heavy weight Harley Bagger any of the IAS shocks are good but the new 940'S are the cats ass! they are $900.00 at progressive but their only $465 at a place online i think its called one stop moto 2 day free delivery. sounds like a lot of money but most us uf spend that on the first trip to the chrome shop, get some IAS rear shocks your ass and your back will thank you

I've been looking at those. With my wife and luggage I can never get air to stay in the shocks and they bottom out all the time. HATE it just HATE it.

I'm running the new hd's. Ride and handling are great. Quick and easy to adjust when the mrs. gets on. I have a set of Bitubo's I'd like to sell. Ride was great. I just hated adjusting them.
