I'm new the the forum, but just installed the Arnott's on my 09 Muscle. Being a short 5'6" tall, they are the best mod I could have done. So much better looking and easier to back up etc. Plus the Arnott factory is in my back yard.

Thanks! Been just lurking in the weeds here for the last month or so, soaking up all the great knowledge you guys are providing. And by the way got my Arnotts through the group buy with Ken. Great service and the BEST price going.

The Arnotts actually have proper damping - most of the other systems don't. Having said that, sports suspension it isn't - for people uses to sports bikes (like me) it is way under-damped. But it is still a lot better than stock, you can use it to make the bike look cool, the kit is well sorted, and you can also use it to maximise the limited suspension travel the V-Rod offers.

The chrome fell off mine instantly, but apparently they changed chromers right after I bought mine.

A general thumbs up. If I bought a second V-Rod, I'd buy a second set of Arnotts.

Installed mine last week. Harley should team up with arnotts and roll this out as a option. Once you get use to making height adjustments and there impact on the type of riding your planning it becomes second nature on the fly. I ended up mounting my handle bar switch above horn cover closest to seat, just about behind it by removing cover and drilling hole in horn bracket to bolt it on.

Took for 1000k service Saturday and they couldn't believe I did install so perfectly and "factory like".. that being said take your time....

Can't post pictures thru my android for some reason or I would...

Arnotts are the way to go for air shocks. Not only are they basically half the price of others, they - like Louis mentioned - are real shocks, not just air bags with a pole in the middle to hold them together. They are not perfect, but they are pretty damn good.
