Fitment Notes & Exceptions

  • Before purchasing or attempting to install shocks that are different than the OEM length, confirm that your wheel travel can be altered without causing clearance issues such as swingarm/axle to exhaust contact as well as chain/belt guard or tire contact.

A shopper asked: I've got a 2002 sportster and heard some people have to add a fabricated belt tension when using 15" shock is that true? Also do you have to do anything to the front fork shocks to accommodate the higher rear? Thanks Mar 27, 2015

Brian S: I think since you're pre-2003 you're safe running the 15" without the belt tensioner. If memory serves me, post 03 have to either run the 13" or a belt tensioner. As far as changing the front end that's gonna be personal preference. Im running the 13's so there wasn't much of a change other than ride quality. still sits the same. I don't think you by any means HAVE to change it. Try it out, if it's uncomfortable or sloppy, upgrade your front end shocks or maybe play with some pre-load adjusters. If any of this wasn't helpful, email burly directly. Those dudes are super cool and super helpful. Quick responses too! Mar 27, 2015

Kevin S: The belt will be looser than with the stock shocks, but unless your belt is worn or stretched (because of over tension in the first place) you shouldn't have any trouble adjusting the tension with the stock adjusters.

Of course, this would be a perfect time to do a chain conversion.....

john b: I found the belt to be very loose with these shocks. I fabricated a belt tensioner. it is not necessary to adjust front end, however I did by using fork tube extensions. Mar 28, 2015

erik B: Thanks John! Did you get the 13" or 15" shock? Any info online about the belt tensioner you fabricated? I was thinking maybe the 13" is a good middle ground. Mar 28, 2015
