Anybody running these. Part #54000008; Premium Ride Hand Adjustable Rear Shocks from HD. Are these made by Showa? They have rebound and compression controls and a hand knob to adjust preload via hydraulic adjuster. $499.99 for a set. Im getting tired of waiting for progressive to release the new 944's. Almost pulled the trigger on a pair of Ohlins at Sturgis but couldnt get the gun out of the holester. I have the progressive monotubes up front and it would be nice to have progressives on the rear as well. Maybe they'll be out by christmas and santa will bring a pair.

I have the lowered version as well. Gone are the air shocks. These shocks are a little bit stiffer but definitely control the ride better. I got these as an interim solution before spending the coin for Ohlins.

Long story but I actually ended up with a second set of these in the 12" version. Was trying to pick up a used King from a friend and was going to use them on it but he decided to hang on to his ride. I was going to eBay them but haven't got around to it. They are available if you were interested.

was looking at the lowered version, thanks for the offer though. Do you have the Ohlins on your ride right now are you still interim?

No, not yet. I am running the Harley Premium ride shocks. I just had an extra set that I was able to round up and thought that I was going to use. Another member saw this post and PMed me for them.
