Stopping by Super Shox Friday afternoon to pick up my set. Talked to Brian this morning about a set for my '15. With the very reasonable price tag and a 30 day trial, I don't think I can go wrong. Definitely going to put some miles down Saturday!

There was a pretty good thread on them over on HTT forums IIRC. Seems like pretty reasonable alternative to either Progressive 944 or Ohlins #2 from Howard from what I read. I would also like to hear a few more reviews and impressions about them.

Picked up 2 sets of these on Friday the 7th. 1 set for my '15 and another for a buddy's 2000 Screamin Eagle. Talked to Brian and he was excellent to work with on understanding how to set them up properly and how they should make my ride feel. Installed both sets at my house, my buddy went home about 20 miles away and called me. His response was Holy Cow, why did I not do this sooner! I took mine out Saturday for a 200 mile blast through northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. Without even messing with the settings my set came with, which is a 3, I am extremely pleased with the way the bike felt. It is night and day from the air shocks. The very first test I put them through on my test ride was a highway bridge joint that has popped me out of my seat for years no matter what bike I was riding. I just stand up when I go over it now because if I don't then there are back issues for that day. I did not stand this time and the bike handled it awesome! Still have 29 days to return them and if I can get out today I am going 2up and having the wife evaluate from her end. So far these things rock and are a huge step above the Progressive 940's I had on my '12.

I see they are saying they SS's lower the ride height. Can anyone tell me by how much? Sounds like a good mod. My after market shocks are very stiff, so I would love to change them out for something a bit smoother.

I didn't do any measuring, but mine feels and looks to be the stock height. I believe the R/G and S/G come an inch lower as it is anyways. I asked my friend with the 2000 Screamin Eagle and he says his is definitely lower.

Took the bike back out on Sunday for a quick 50 miles doing 2 up. Rode to a local dealers Sturgis party by way of hitting my favorite bridge joint. The bike handled it phenomenal, not what I expected. The bike was feeling a little light in the front end to me though so when we got to the dealer I bumped it up to 3 1/2 for the setting. Rode it home and it felt quite a bit better to me. Very pleased still, and I'm going to keep the miles rolling as much as I can. 940's will be for sale shortly for anyone looking.

Just put some on yesterday. So far I notice the handling improvement more than the improvement in shock absorption. To early to tell to much as I haven't adjusted anything or rode them enough yet.
Also the bike is just a skitch lower as the EZ Up center stand has got easier going up. With the air shocks it took a little more oomph and raised the back tire about three whiskers above garage floor

Received mine on Friday installed them on saturday -
removed the Premium Knob HD shit shocks that came with my special
took the bike out on Sunday and actually enjoyed riding - it compliments the HD premium ride Front Suspension
I'm 190 so dialed at (1) as Alia recommended - rides nice - gonna play with 1/2 turn increments (+ and -)
to find the sweet spot - so far I'm thinking maybe these shocks are the ticket - will update after
more testing - hopefully I keep them :)
