Shocks are also capable of extending slightly beyond stock height, if you're looking for extra ground clearance for stretched bags and fenders. Kit includes exclusive black air compressor, new custom shocks with push-to-connect fittings for easy installation and great seal. System uses all nickel-plated brass high-flow high-pressure push-to-connect fittings throughout the entire system, and a manifold-style dump valve block for optimum performance. This kit includes all of the components for a fully functional, fully height adjustable rear air suspension. With this kit, you can ride with zero air pressure without rubbing. That means if you hit a big enough bump or ever lost air pressure for any reason you can still ride without rubbing your tire against your fender (on most '09-Later models, or '08-earlier models with stock rear tire). No need to pay more for another system, and no need to have someone else install. This system can be installed by anyone with basic tools and basic-to-moderate auto/motorcycle knowledge and experience, and includes easy to follow instructions and wiring/plumbing diagram, and we will help you with any technical questions you have.
Year/location specific mounting brackets for the compressor are included with this system, to mount behind the right saddlebag and float between the rear wheel and right saddlebag. In some cases, depending on location and bike model, some mild fabrication may be necessary to mount the air compressor or switch, but normally this system comes with everything you need for an easy installation. System comes as pictures, with some minor variances from one model year to another. Switch is a mini momentary toggle switch that mounts in a 1/4″ hole, and includes a protective waterproof boot. Please note the optional handlebar grip switch will not fit 2015-up Road Glide models. MRI center stand will not fit with exhaust that has a cross-under pipe – That pipe will not allow the center stand legs to fold up for riding.
Steel shocks measure 9.5″ collapsed, 13.25″ extended (measured bolt-center to bolt-center)
Aluminum shocks measure 9.5″ collapsed, 13.75″ extended (measured bolt-center to bolt-center)
What’s the difference between the steel and aluminum shocks? Steel shocks have a pretty basic design inside and out. This keeps the price low, and the shocks still ride well and are very reliable. The aluminum shocks have a more advanced design inside and out – This allows for optimum reliability, as well as the most comfortable ride available and the best performance available. They have a wider range of comfortable travel, so they’re very easy to adjust and most people find that they can ride lower with these shocks. If you are looking for the best air shocks available for your bike, these aluminum shocks are what you are looking for.
