Howdy all.
I’ve fitted some 10.5” shocks to my 2007 night rod special and yes it’s low..
Anyone have any experience of riding with this setup? Will I manage or is it too low? Probably for 2” or JUST over on lowest part of frame..
Thanks!

p.s I’m UK based..

Or drop into a pothole - 2" of ground clearance is not practical or smart IMHO. I want longer shocks for my R Model not shorter - anyone got 16" or 16.25" shocks that aren't shorter shocks that are extended with longer eyelets ? I want full suspension travel so when I go flying over a humped railroad crossing I can ride it confidently with no upset or tossing wifey off the back. I just don't understand the race to low, after racing off road bikes with 11-12" of suspension travel even the R model seat height is low. Arnott will give the best of both worlds but honestly the high price and packaging issues for the pump on the V Rod can be an issue, and just not for me.
