  • Offers enhanced compression and rebound damping compared to the Original Equipment-style air adjustable shocks
  • Provides a controlled yet plush ride with less bottoming
  • Larger chambers (40mm diameter pistons and 14mm rods) allow these shocks to react more quickly to impacts - this keeps the tires tracking while minimizing harshness transmitted through the frame
  • Knob behind the left saddlebag allows the rider to conveniently modify the spring preload via a hydraulic adjuster
  • Available in Standard Ride Height and Low Ride Height versions

Fits '09-'16 Touring models (except models equipped with lowered front ends).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dont Hesitate, just get them on your bike Wife was always shifting around every time I hit a bump with the stock shocks. Installed these on Saturday and took her for a long ride down roads that I knew had bumps and she was still as can be. She even commented on how better it was. So much better than stock air shocks....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Maybe - Maybe Not Purchased a brand new 2017 RGS which came with these off the showroom floor... They were great for me at my weight of 300 pounds with full leathers... Once I added the tour pack and a 150 pound passenger with our gear, we were well over the 400 pound limit once dialed in to manual specs... Harley did not have an upgrade... so 13" Progressive 970 Heavy Duty rear suspension was ordered in for me....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it I had considered upgrading shocks on my last 2 bikes and was pretty skeptical about the amount of improvement I would get, especially with a '14. Let me just say I wish I would have tried it 2 bikes ago. The roads in green bay aren't the best, especially at railroad crossings and I always had to slow way down or stand on the boards to not get bucked into the air. The difference with these is nothing short of amazing. I can go over tracks same place at posted speed and barely feel the bump. If you read this far you are seriously considering new shocks. Stop wasting time! After the improvement with these I am adding the premium front suspension next winter. If they only improve my ride half what the rears have I will be one happy guy. These should be installed from factory instead of as aftermarket but I get it. As for installation I can't say, I had my dealer install.

Parts list question

Does this kit come with new bolts to mount them, or do you use the original nuts and bolts that came with the bike? Thanks!
Asked by: DannyT
Hi DannyT-- The Premium Hand-Adjustable Touring Shocks will only include the shocks! Your dealer may be of assistance with finding replacements for the screws and bolts. Hope this helps!
