Low and Ultra Low

SHOCK ABSORBERS FOR TOURING MODELS - Progressive Suspension


944 ULTRA TOURING: Specifically designed to deliver a comfortable ride at a 1" lowered stance. Built around the latest FST technology, The Ultra Touring shocks utilize all the suspension travel provided by the full length units, but in a 1" lowered ride height. The unique Ultra Touring spring combination not only delivers a lowered ride height while its being ridden, but also while it's on the side stand.

Part #: M29032 - Progressive Suspension 13" 944 Ultra Touring Pair with Heavy Duty Springs. Fits FL & Touring models 5 speed 1980/Later ... $743.82

944 ULTRA LOW: Just like the name implies, this is the lowest version of the 944 Series shocks. Designed to sit 2" lower than a stock HD Touring model and provide the best ride a short shock can! Want your bike in the weeds or struggling to reach the ground? The 944 Ultra Low is the shock for the job.
Frequency Sensing Technology (FST) allows the shocks to sense the frequency of a bump and automatically adjust damping for superior ride quality
Sits 1" lower on most models
Adjust spring pre-load by hand, no special tool needed
Progressive Rate Main Springs specifically designed for touring
Available in standard and heavy duty spring rates
Made in the USA

Note: There is no substitute for suspension travel. For optimum ride quality we recommend the taller Ultra Touring version of the 944 Series shocks.

Airtail Rear Shocks for Softail 2000/L and 1989/1999 - Progressive Suspension

Air pressure controlled ride height (down to 2" lowered seat height) is easily adjusted on the fly by the optional on-board compressor kit. (See below.) The optional hand pump is an economical means of adding air pressure if the on-board compressor kit is not desired.
One shock of the chrome plated set is conventional and incorporates a coil spring and damper assembly. This shock basically supports the weight of the motorcycle and controls the compression/rebound dampening characteristics. The other shock features two separate air adjustable chambers. One chamber is used for the rider/passenger's weight and the other is used to control the ride height.
The advantage of the airtail system is that the air compresses at a progressive rate and easily solves the age old problem of bottoming out (even when running in the lowered state).
The on-board compressor kit includes a chrome plated coil cover that houses an air pressure gauge, rocker switch for adding air to each chamber and two push button air bleed valves. The air compressor itself mounts to the rear fork axis tube and no modification is required to your existing parts for installation. Instructions are included.
The hand pump is designed for people that won't be constantly changing the ride height. You can just set it and forget it and enjoy a better ride than was previously available from any other shocks available. Made in USA.

Lowers seat height as much as 2"

Progressive Adjustable Length Shock Absorbers for Softail motorcycles.

ADJUSTABLE LENGTH SHOCK ABSORBER SETS FOR SOFTAIL - Progressive Suspension

Chrome Plated.
Lowers seat height as much as 2".
These 422 Series shocks are designed to provide the ultimate in ride quality.
Features Inertia Active System (I.A.S.) damping. This type of "state of the art" valving senses the difference between chasis movement and wheel movement. When the wheel encounters a pot hole or expansion joint the damping changes instantly from firm to soft allowing the wheel to move rather than having the jolt transmitted to the chassis and the rider.
Progressive wound springs further enhance the ride quality by increasing in tension relative to the amount of shock travel.
Nitrogen charged to help eliminate dampening fade unde extreme conditions and high heat.
Large windows in the shock covers provide a unique look while eliminating internal corrosion.
3/8" drive tool is included for spring tension and ride height adjustment.
Instructions and Tool are included.
Note: FLSTN models have a 1" lowered ride height from the factory so these shocks must be adjusted accordingly. When reducing ride height, always check headlight aim and correct lean angel on jiffy stand.
