    Replacement Shocks

    I am the proud owner of an 09 SG with 15000 miles on it. I am tired of the stock shocks and am looking to replace them. Anyone have any suggestions as to what are the best replacements for me.

    Thanks for the plug Bill. We carry a wide range of shocks but we personally run Suspension Technologies F-Tech Series Shocks on both our in-house Road Glide and Street Glide. Can't beat the price, quality and ride of them.

    Will I have any issues, such as axle/swingarm contact with the pipes, etc.... by using a 13" ST shock instead of a stock 12"? Just looking for more travel when two-up. We hit once in awhile now and that blows. I'm running about 38 psi in the stock shocks. I am 200 lbs. and my wife is about 150 lbs.. May add a chopped tour pack for a long haul, but, typically just have a back rest and once in awhile a luggage rack.

    A thirteen inch shock is the standard length for the FL touring bike rear suspension. Harley supplies a twelve inch "lowered" suspension as original equipment on the Street Glide in the USA. European Street Glides and Electra Glides in the USA get thirteen inch shocks.

    I know the 13" is standard on most FLs, just wasn't sure if HD changed anything else on the SG besides the shock and seat. Should be good to go then. Thanks.
