Not what I expected
Date:June 15, 2011
These shocks were shorter than the stock ones on my bike. And they did not bolt up right (they would have rubbed the frame, the rubber mounting was not as wide).

That's more like it
Date:July 14, 2010
I bought Burly 10.5" for my '91 XLH1200 heritage custom, they were too short too install. I returned tthem and installed these instead. What a difference these made. Kickstand still works but it's easier to get off the stand, I feel better sitting at traffic signals, and it feels more stable on gravel and at low speeds. A saddlebag rack is fastened on my bike using the top shock mount bolts. I had to scounge up some spacers to take up slack because of short metal and rubber bushings used for these shock's upper mounting. Otherwise, they bolted right in. I left them in the middle preload position and they have never bottomed out. I'm 5'11" weigh 150 and my wif'e's about 106 lbs. Our bike weighs about 550. They don't look nearly as good as the Burlys or even the stock shocks, but they lower our Sportster just right and you can't see them for saddle bags.

Great purchase
Date:March 8, 2010
These shocks lowered the seat height of my 1200 Sportster 1.5" which made my bike look great and also handle better.

Sporster shocks
Date:October 9, 2009
These shocks were the biggest disappointment of anything that I have ever bought online. No matter how I set them they bottomed out. They aren't heavy enough for a bicycle. On the up side, I was able to make a nice tpilet paper holder out of them.
