Progressive Suspension 412 Cruise Shocks For Harley Sportster
The perfect balance of a lowered stance and a quality ride. With the gas charged damper and five position pre-load adjuster combined with a flat-wire spring and a progressive main spring, the result is a lowered shock that rides like a traditional height unit. The 12.5" long shock sits around 11.5" under the weight of the bike, yet it utilizes the full stroke as terrain demands it.
Changing ride height can potentially change many carefully-engineered attributes of your bike, including trail and mechanical trail - a change in ride height at one end of the vehicle may require a change at the other end
Prior to purchasing shocks that are different than your OEM length, please verify that wheel and suspension travel can be altered without causing clearance issues - common interference spots include swingarm, axle, frame, tire, fender, chain/belt and guard, and exhaust
Great "Hybrid" Option
I've looked all over and wasn't able to find any reviews specifically of the 412 CRUISE, so hopefully many of you will find this review helpful. I have a '14 Iron 883. I wanted to keep the bike as low as possible but NEEDED to upgrade the suspension (I live and ride mostly in the city). The 412 Cruise seemed like a perfect solution! I could keep the bike relatively low but get the benefit of a 12.5 shock. I've only put about 100 miles on them (and if they are like the regular 412s, I expect that they will "break in" a bit), but the improvement in ride comfort is spectacular. I will, however, point out that the bike doesn't sit as low as I hoped it would. I'll have to play with the preload; I may have it set too high so the bike is not settling as low as it should (Progressive includes specific instructions about the unique sag the Cruise series shocks should have). Anyway, the bottom line is that the price is right, installation is easy, and the improvement in ride comfort is wonderful. You are going to give up SOME of the "slammed" look that comes with the 11" stock suspension, but the 412 Cruise seems like a perfect compromise between looks and comfort. I've included a photo that will give you some idea of what the Cruise shocks look like compared to the stock, 11" shocks.
