I received stock length 412s for cheap from Amazon. Can't hurt to check.

I know this is old thread, but info just as valid.

I was after the same info,
I have 2004 883 XL, mid mount control bike
With the OEM springs set to maximum stiffness with the adjuster mine measure 13 3/8th centre to centre of the eyelet with me lifting the bike from the rack and my mate measuring. We thought it was an odd length so we measured multiple times.

Was looking for new springs too. Thinking Progressive too. Was very tempted by the external reservoir 990's, but the price !!! $1500 usd
Think I will go with the 444's.


HD or standard springs, that is the question though.
I ride mostly solo with a few trips 2 up with baggage. When 2 up we and the bags can be up to about 350 lbs...but general riding I am 220 lbs.
what do you reckon ? Standard or HD ?
