Progressive Suspension 412 Series Shocks For Harley Touring
The 412 Series shocks are simply the best value shock the Progressive offers. The 412's simple, durable design means they will be an improvement to your motorcycle's suspension performance for as long as you are riding it. The double-wall steel body construction with nitrogen charged, multi-staged velocity-sensitive valving gives you smooth, consistent damping. A five position cam-style preload adjuster lets you dial in your ride whether you're a light rider or heavy hitter. Step into suspension that works for you.
Cam-style preload adjuster
Sold as a pair
Made in USA
Depending on model, your stock shock length is 12" to 13"
Shock lengths are measured fully extended, eyelet to eyelet on centers
A change in height at one end of the bike may require a change at the other
Changing ride height can potentially change the trail and mechanical trail
Heavy Duty shocks are recommended for bikes operated at or near the OEM maximum load rating over 50% of the time
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 to the swingarm, axle, frame, tire, fender, chain/belt and guard, and exhaust

A shopper asked:I'm looking to lower ride height by about 1" on the 2015 Road Glide Special. I also find the stock rear suspension somewhat "vague" in the corners. It sounds like the 412 will work for me, but I am wondering how these adjust from stiff to softer ride. I like the easy adjust on the factory shock. Is this similar or is there a separate tool I need to purchase with this? I mostly have a rider with me. I'm 5'8" and about 210. My rider is 130. Please advise.Sep 1, 2015
Jeffrey B:The 412 are an old-school-like coil over with a stepwise preload that is adjusted manually with a spanner wrench that comes with the shocks. You must remove the hard bags to access the shocks for this adjustment.Sep 18, 2015
Michael M:I just installed them on my 2014 limited love them there is an adjustment wrench that comes with the shocks easy to adjust go with the heavy duty version for the weight you have ridingSep 18, 2015
A shopper asked:I have a 2014 CVO Roadking. The suspension is hard as a rock when riding solo. A little better with 2 up. The 944 shocks seem to be designed for touring models with the added weight of passenger and cargo. Since the CVO Roadking is more of a cruiser how can I get a softer ride when solo. But also have the added strength when riding 2 up. Which shock should I buy?
Jeffrey B:I'm not terribly familiar with the hydraulic adjustable preload of the '14 CVO RK shocks, but perhaps you can reduce it to zero and have a better ride. Otherwise, I am a strong proponent of coil-over shocks with adjustable preload; Progressive makes a quality product. I have the 912 on a ’06 Road Glide, and they’re a huge improvement over stock. Not soft, but responsive with improved handling and ride quality - I ride solo a lot. IMO, any Progressive aftermarket shock will improve the ride from the HD stock by far. There is a good video specific to the 944 on the RevZilla product page (or RevZilla TV / YouTube) that speaks to improved ride. I recommend poking around on RevZilla and some V-twin forums for additional experienced first-hand feedback.Jun 5, 2015
A shopper asked:So I have developed some back issues this year but really want to keep riding. I have a 2010 streetglide with factory shocks. Looking to upgrade shocks to soften the ride a bit. Would these shocks be enough? What's the benefit to going to the PG 944s? I ride solo most of the time with little gear. 200 lbs total. Any info appreciated. Thankyou.Apr 26, 2015

Not soft, but responsive with improved handling and ride quality. You can dial back the preload to the lowest (longest) setting and realize a "softer" ride because it lengthens (softens)the spring. IMO, any Progressive aftermarket shock will improve the ride from the HD stock...by far.Jun 5, 2015
A shopper asked:I have a 2014 CVO Roadking. The suspension is hard as a rock. I weigh 195 and the bike doesn't drop at all when sitting on it. Riding on the freeway it bounces on every bump. I'm considering the 944 shocks, but they seem to be designed for touring models with the added weight of passenger and cargo. The CVO is more cruiser than touring. I ride 2 up about 50%. Which shock should I consider? MarcJun 4, 2015
