I have looked everywhere and can't find stock length. I want to put on progressive 412 but need the stock length.
R's got 13.5"Well it's a xl1200c. the shocks measure 11 1/2 but who's to say they're stock shocks? It a 2005 so they could be replacements. Anyway I just ordered Progressive 412 shocks 12" long.
[QUOTE The shock will have about 3/8" less travel. Make sure the tire clears the hardware and wiring as it will sit deeper into the fender.
[/QUOTE]You're saying the stock 11 1/2 will sit deeper and have less travel? Will the bike sit 1/2" higher in the rear with 12"? Why do they offer shocks up to 13 1/2"??:whoa
Thanks Osco and Rockerbox. Actually I just ordered this morning:it would be best tho if you got a lift. I have this one from Harbor Freight, had it about 2 years now and use it all of the time, it has worked flawlessly for me.
I bought mine on sale for $69. right now they are $99, but you can always find 20% off coupons for HF, which would make it $80
it is an invaluable tool to have, you will use it more than you think. Hell, it's even handy to wash the bike, lets you rotate the wheels without moving the bike
