Has anyone tried the progressive shocks on an SE? Not sure if the shocks are different or not on the SE compared to the others. I have an option to get a set at a decent price but do not know if they will make a difference on the SE.

I think so. I run the 440's, 13". One of the first mods I did.

Yep, the bruises on my "Arse" :D :moon: disappeared within a week of putting the 440's on.

No marks on the 250 Avon anymore. Gotta love that.

Hmm,did read somwhere that the se shocks have less travel path,to prevent bottoming out on the fender i think.
HD part number 54743-06 ,so there's a difference.

The '06 SE shocks have a spacer inside to prevent bottoming out on the fender but the shock itself is the same.

Thanks bonketi,that explains whats different.
Just was thinking doing that on my stock shocks.(see oncoming mods. :broke: )
would you(or anybody) know the approx.dimentions and material for these spacers.
Thanks.

I don't know about the dimensions but I would use a rubber spacer for something like that.

Screaming Joe - did you fit them and if so, what did you do about the spacer issue? I am thinking of getting some mysel and would be interested to know...

I haven't breached the price yet. Kind of waiting on resolution before I cross over.
