I'm Sorry Kainam
I'm so mixed up these days,
I also had the groups mixed up, was trying to find my post here, But I had the groups mixed up too. LOL
I can't even find it now, they must change the stupid emotions too.
Anyways, That "Little guy" is not Laughing, he is bowing down like in praise.

So I got the groups mixed up too,
But I'll ask here I guess,

On a 2002 Sportster Custom (1200) What was the stock rear shock length?
I have been googling this for a week, and can't find a solid answer.
Thing is, I got some progressive 412's on it now, they were given to me a while (good while back) although I liked the improved handling, they are a little too tall for me right now, as my knees are a little questionable now. Thinking about some new progressives.
I don't have my take offs any longer, to measure, and If I get some new 412's I hate to guess. IIRC the stock ones that were on there were a good length for me.
It's a tall persons world, as I only stand about 5' 6" . Don't trust my knees these days, but as long as I'm flat footed with both feet, I'm OK.

So someone said (in the other group) he thinks they are 13.25" long.
But I have been reading where they say the 2002 XL 1200 Custom has 11.75" shocks stock.
The closets Progressive has is 11.5 and 12.0"

Thinking about the 11 1/2" Or the 12"
Looks like the 11 1/2" might be standard duty, It's not real clear.
11 1/2"


12"



wonder how much difference in the seat height between the two it would make?

Thanks,

Well, now the postings confusion has been sorted ! 😉

I just ordered 444 Progressives from California Phil.

13.5 inch with Standard rate springs.

I weigh 220lbs this week, last month I was 207. 😞😞

Progressive themselves say the weight break point for going to Heavy duty springs is 250lbs.

When I ride two up, plus bags, combined weight is about 350 lbs, so I was a bit stuck as to standard or HD.
Went Standard and a bit taller, my originals are 13, so the extra inch will be ok, and might give me a bit more clearance from bottoming when two up.

Will post back if I remember, and can find this thread, in a few months when they arrive.
Phil orders them in, then has to send them on to me, in Jersey

Wow, 250 lbs. Breaking point. wonder if I should get the standards?
I decided on the 11 1/2" ones.
IDK, I mostly ride single, but who knows, in the future?
I guess the standard duty would ride a little nicer, don't you think?

I was going Heavy Duty, because of phone call I had with Progressive,
But Phil and others said ‘No’ best with Standard unless regularly , like more than half the time, over 250lbs.

I am 200, so HD would be too stiff

Found my stock shocks in the CF garage!
Research shows the stock 02 XLC as a 11.75" length, however my take-offs are measuring out to 12" length. So thinking I will end up with the 12-inch standard-duty 412's.

BTW, the number for the standard duty 02 XLC (12") is
412-4049 C (Chrome) 412-4049B (Black).
Heavy duty (12") is 412-4050C/B.
(Chrome/Black)

Thanks to all.

Out of interest where did you gt your part numbers from

My dealer page shows completely different P/N's. It does not list actual 1200XLC, it just lists Sportster and year. Usually the page it brings up then lists all the different models on the list
No spec regarding length though

numbers seem to be
54566-97
54568-92 or 54471-82
54552-96A - 54552-96
54542-96A - 54542-96
