Lowered shocks or shorter shocks give you a stiffer ride harder suspension since stock shocks are average anyway.

But never fear we are working on a new kit that will lower the back 3"

Coming out soon!

I used the longer gr custom rear fender with led brake/indicator inserts, added the vrod muscle side registration plate system as the holes for it are already on the fender strut. I had platinum air rides for a few footy seasons when i noticed regular leakage with the fuel tank hitting the safety gromets on the swingarm. I replaced the lines and still had issues. In the end went for skullman 11.75 shocks lowering the bike to suit the rear fender. For a few hundred dollars they are stiffer, lower and better then the stockers. The only other issue was the LED inserts they worked great until i went for a steam clean and subsequently recommend they be silasticed before placement due to the extensive water and damage it can cause. I will try and find some pics as am overseas at the moment.

Thumbs up

Silasticed.... silicone elastomers also resists oils and coolants.
I'd rather be on my motorcycle thinking about God, then in church thinking about my motorcycle.

The Kreater fender looks very nice. But as far as I can read, they leave you with very limited suspension travel. Right?
