I currently have FLH shocks on my ironhear sporty, mainly cause they drop the rear fender height about 1 to 1 1/2 inch. well the bike rides like a hardtail, that would be fine if it was only town cruising, but out here in BFE, roads are harsh.
My question is, what length are stock FX shocks? would they be light enough to give my bike a more comfy ride? I can't remember (off the top of my head) what length the FLH shocks are. I had a pair of 2000 sportster shocks given to me but they are about 1 inch too short, and won't even fit on my shockmounts anyway.

Just tossing around ideas, as I am trying to get stuff in order to get my old ironhead back together b4 spring.

I believe....and I'm guessing, that FLH shocks are 12.5" eye to eye, and the Sporty and Dyna are 13.5", hence the drop of one inch.

I have an old set of progressives that are 12/12.5" that give a decent ride you can have, but they're gonna need some cleaning and possible need to be painted black due to surface rust and wear..... just pay me the shipping.

PM me if you're interested....

Maybe some Dyna shocks will work and if there to tall you can get a shock lowering kit.I have a kit from my old dyna that I got from Dave eons ago still new in package.It changes the position of the shocks on the bottom .moves em back a little you can have it if you want just pay shipping its a small package.
