I own a 2006 Kawasaki Vulcan with saddle bags and travel trunk and my wife rides with me quite a bit. My factory shocks died completely @ 45,000+ miles. They were adjustable air shocks with adjustments for compression damping also. When I checked with the dealer they told me the shocks would cost $1,000 PLUS installation. That seems like a lot of money for shocks that failed with less than 50K on them. So I bought a pair of 412 Heavy duty shocks for about $263.00 and wow what a difference. My old shocks were 12" and I got 13" instead 'cause the bike is heavy and I carry a lot of stuff and I need the extra preload. The shocks work great and stability with a passenger added was excellent. I highly recommend them for heavy loads like mine.

The front fork springs on my Lowrider were sagging and never fully returned when compressed. These springs along with Bel-Ray 20w fork oil returned the proper functioning of my forks. Easy installation. Very complete instructions are included. Took less than an hour to do both legs. Really improved the ride and response of these forks. Highly recommended.

Don't try making your own compressor out of wooden lath and misc nuts and bolts.....you will fail. Just spend the few bucks and get it done fast and safe.

I purchased these shocks because the biker that owned my ride before me is a good friend of mine, the problem is he is 5"8 125 and I'm 6"3 215. He had purchased 9 inch shocks and the bike would bottom out with me. I installed the 444 series and took it for a ride. The shocks are amazing and has a superior ride as Harley stock shocks. I have always ridden Harley Davidsons and they have always made me feel sore after long rides. I have done several 300 mile rides with the 444 shocks and I have no," beat to hell feeling" with these shocks. Thanks motorcycle super store!!

put the progressive fork springs in as well.. did the 444 shocks and suddenly my bike was hugging the road on those tight bends... ripping round those long sweepers with out flinging me onto the other side of the road.. I am now carting the missus around with me again and the bike doesn't leap off the road when I hit pot holes or bottom out any more.. though after 3300 kilometres last week with my mates I find that I will have to adjust them again as they have gone a little soft so today I wash bike and readjust shocks and we see how they go next week.... the instructions said they may take a little time to bed in...
