Posted this on the X site, but this might be better.

I have a set of Ohlin shocks from my FXDX I sold with 4 3/32" of travel. Is there any clearance issues with the swingarm and gastank with using long travel suspension?

Easy to figure this. Put your bike ( back half) on your lift. Raise it until the tire is just touching. Measure the extended length of the shock. Disconnect the shocks at the bottom. Lower the bike until the swing arm cross brace is about 1/4 inch from touching the tank. Measure the distance from the top shock bolt to the lower mount. Subtract the two distances to get the amount of travel you have.
