Low Single Cartridge Fork Kit is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good ride quality I already had the Premium Ride Hand-Adjustable Low Profile Touring Shocks from a previous bike (2016 Road King) but only had them installed and other than it being slightly lower to the ground, with the crappy stock front suspension, I didn't notice much difference. Well, when I got my Electra Glide, I waited to install them both at the same time. I installed the rears but took it to the dealer to install the fronts as I don't have the special tools. Man was I impressed, surprisingly. It was obviously lower and while I'm 5'10", my legs just seems short, so it being lower was definitely good for me but it really did improve the handling. Comfort wise, for me, it was night and day. Having ridden on it with the stock suspension for a while it dove in the front bad even when not braking hard, it was sloppy and harsh. The new suspension is firm but compliant and comfortable. Front end dive has been significantly reduced to a minimum. I am extremely pleased with the quality of the components, and more importantly, the improvement in ride quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps us short people For those of us that are a little on the shorter side. This kit helps lower the bikes front end. It gives you about an inch. Had this installed so I can't comment on the installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Compliment to Premium Rear Shocks I added this kit to my SGS since it had the Premium Ride rear shocks stock. I've only got a 30" inseam so these help lower the bike & create an awesome smooth ride. Install wasn't too bad but you have to take the whole front end apart to do it. Inner/Outer Fairing, Calipers, Fender, Wheel/Tire & Fork Assemblies all come off. Then you break down the fork assemblies to install. Hardest part of reassembly was the cartridge leg since it's longer & tough to compress - I used my drill press to compress between the base & material platform using a slot in the platform to install the nut.

Will I loose suspension travel?

Does this kit decrease the amount of available front fork travel?
Asked by: Buckshot85
Hi Buckshot85, Yes, you will see a decrease in travel. Say the fork kit lowers the front end an inch, you'll lose an inch of travel.

Will this lower 2015 FLHXS with stock rear shocks?

I have a 2015 Street Glide Special that I would like to lower 1 inch. Will these lower the bike with stock rear shocks?
Asked by: Chop

Do I need to buy one fork kit for each shock, or does the kit include the parts for both shocks?

The description says it is a "single cartridge." Does that mean I need to buy two cartridges, one for each shock?
Asked by: TheStuarts

i own 2014 flhtk,need to lower 1 inch.will these do the trick with stock rear shocks? thanks

Asked by: steve56
Hello Steve56, These will lower the forks, but you will also need to purchase the low profile shocks to keep the bike balanced. Thank You!

same as Ultra Low forks?

I own a 2014 Ultra Limited, if I put these on my bike, are they the same forks that come from the factory on the 2015 Ultra Limited Low?
Asked by: TiggerJr
Hello TiggerJr, Your are correct! This is the same kit that is on a 2015 FLHTKL and FLHTCUL model. Thank You!
