944 Shocks 2015 Road King

out of 5
5 stars

By on November 9, 2016

These Progressive 944 shocks dropped my 15 Road King down an inch in the rear for a lowered ride. The best part is they still have the travel to take up bumps like the stock height without feeling stiff without travel. They are a night and day difference compared to those factory air shocks from HD and were easy to install in about an hour.

Questions & Answers

  • This is a pair

    By: Guest

    Yes indeed! These shocks are sold in pairs.

  • For the heavy duty shocks, they'll have the grayish springs on them, correct?

    By: Raymond Wright

    That's correct, you can choose the 944 Series Ultra Touring Shocks to be sprung with heavy-duty springs. The color will be very similar to the image on our website. Keep in mind, while these shocks will measure 13" in length eye-to-eye, the are specifically designed to deliver a comfortable ride at a 1" lowered stance. Once installed they will ride like a 12" shock, but they will have the extra inch of travel on rebound if you were to go over a larger bump in the road.

  • I ride 2 up alot,should use standard or heavy duty

    By: Scott

    If you ride two-up more than 50% of the time, then you'd certainly want to go with the heavy-duty shocks. In addition, we highly recommend that, if you were to go with a set of heavy-duty shocks, you also install a set of Progressive heavy-duty fork springs to match the front forks with the new rear shocks. You'll find handling, especially with matched front and rear components - to be significantly improved with the installation of these Progressive suspension components.

  • how do you adjust the tension how do you make the shocks stiffer how do you make the shocks looser

    By: scott

    The only real way to adjust how stiff the ride of your bike happens to be is to adjust the compression damping valve. Yes, the springs do have some influence on how hard the bike's ride happens to be, but really - springs mostly control how far the shocks will travel when you run over a bump or other irregularities in the road. Compression valving only controls how fast the shock itself travels when it encounters those irregularities. And, most of the harshness (or softness, for that matter) is controlled by compression valving.

    What the 944 shocks from Progressive allow you to do is adjust the preload with ease. In doing so, you're setting the sag (ride height) properly based upon your exact riding weight. In doing so, the shocks will perform best as they're valved to handle the bumps in the road best at proper ride height. If you're frequently riding with or without a passenger, changing the amount of luggage you put on the bike and such - these shocks are ideal for those needs if you're looking for the best possible ride.

    If you're looking to adjust the ride based on stiffness of the shocks alone, then take a look at Progressive's 970 Series Shocks. With the 970 shocks, you'll be able to adjust compression damping without having to send it off to a dedicated suspension tuner for re-valving. Of course, the 970 shocks also allow for preload adjustment, so you can set the proper ride height too - but unlike the 944 series, whose preload you can adjust by hand, you'll need to use the included wrench to make preload adjustments on the 970 shocks.

  • Trying to find out if these shocks are a good replacement for my stock premium shocks.I'm looking for a softer ride with out bottom out with two people on it .

    By: Guest

    You'll find that Progressive's 944 shocks will be a significant improvement over the stock suspension - even the premium option equipment, on any Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Furthermore, the bottoming-out issue you're having is the result of inadequate spring tension. That is to say, the spring rate on those shocks isn't enough to handle your two-up weight requirements. Since it's the spring rate that determines whether or not the suspension bottoms out, these shocks will undoubtedly solve that problem so long as you choose the heavy-duty spring rate option.

    Progressive's heavy-duty spring rates are recommend for solo riders that weigh more than 220lbs or anyone that rides two-up and/or with a full load of luggage at least 50% of the time.
