    Looking to lower

    What are some good shocks to look at. I'd like to lower the glide about an inch. Stock is 11 inch I think?

    Thanks for the input!!

    I think stock is 12"? I literally just ordered these in 13" after tons of research.

    They came preset, in 3 days, but it will be a while before I get to test them out.

    I am going up...based mainly on suggestions on handling. Also adding full 4" extended bags so a bit of clearance won't hurt and I'm 6 1 so no problem reaching.

    Probably not the answer you're looking for but I bought the 1 inch lowering kit from the HD dealership. The kit moves the bottom of each shock further back. Installed them in the driveway in under an hour. I had them on my 2018 SG Special and Harley transferred them over to my new 2021 SGS along with all my other upgrades. I thought it made the bike handle better but I'm just a caveman.

    Ride is ok and you will have to be careful on how you lean and stay away from large pot holes! Good luck. I am flat footed now and that is the best thing for me.
