I had 440s on our Ultra Classic and liked them, so it seemed a natural progression to go to the 944s when we got our 2011 RGU. I just wasn't impressed with the 944s, didn't seem much different than the stock shocks other than being 1" lower.

Right now I'm running the Monroe air setup on the '15 CVO, and they're working well. I'm sure there are better shocks out there, but the learning curve is pretty $steep$.

i had a 09 cvo rg that i put the monroe air shocks on. sold it & bought the 15 rgs with the premium adjustable shocks. i liked the monroe setup much better than the stock shocks on the new rg!! i might put the monroe's on this winter.

Isn't that the stock shock for the RGC? If so, I can say I really like it! New to the RG family though, so this may just be a newbie stupid post...
nope not a newbie post there greybeard.......... the 2015 FLTRUSE CVO comes with air adjustable shocks not the spring loaded adjustable shocks.

the adjustable shocks on the road glide special and street glide special are very nice. you have to tweak them to suit but they are very good.
that being said, the air shocks on my road king are pretty darn good so far.

I have the 944 standard spring, weight 215 only 2 full turns much better than stock. I've only had them 1 year makes a huge difference in handling, small med bumps no bottoming out, large IL potholes nothing will help.

No, no ,no

Had progressives 944s on my RK and was a vast improvement from stock. for my RG I went with cheapest ohlin from motorcyclemetall. Call Howard. I chose Ohlins over Progressives and I get 944s at wholesale. Enough said

I'm looking to put the taller HD specials on mine. Right now I'm running a set of Demo 944's. Gonna try them for a week and see what I think. If anyone is interested in the RGS set I'll sell them with 9000 miles for 250 to help fund the taller one's for me......

I just put the H-D premium touring shocks on my 13 FLTRX. They are adjustable and I have to say for the price I don't know how you can beat them. I'm sure the progressive's and ohlin's and all the others out here are great because there are alot of people running them, but I got mine off ebay for about 300. They were new take offs from a 15 streetglide and for the price I don't think you can beat it. So much better than the junk factory air ride and way easy to adjust.
