Progressive Suspension 444 Series FST Shocks For Harley Touring

After more than a decade of ruling the roads with the road proven shocks, Progressive Suspension unveiled another breakthrough design. Dubbed Frequency Sensing Technology (FST) for its unique ability to dynamically adjust damping as you ride. The result is superior performance no matter the road conditions. A top mount threaded preload adjuster allows for fine tuning with a simple twist of the cap.

Features:

  • Frequency Sensing Technology (FST) allows the shocks to sense the frequency of a bump and automatically adjust damping for superior ride quality
  • Adjust spring pre-load by hand - no special tool needed
  • Progressive-rate spring
  • Deflective disc valving
  • Sold as a pair
  • Made in USA

Notes:

  • 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
  • Super Duty shocks are recommended for bikes operating with over 350lbs of rider, passenger and excess weight
  • 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
Made in the USA

They Deliver the Goods
I purchased these shocks mainly because the air shocks on my 2015 Road King were leaking air, no matter what I did to seal them. I think this was an internal problem with the right shock. They were also bottoming out occasionally. I was able to prevent this by pumping up more air but this was resulting in a harsh ride. I mean; very harsh. They were too sensitive to the "sweet spot" in terms of air pressure. Nevertheless, I would not replace them if keeping them at this sweet spot was not a gruelling exercise for me. I finally decided to try an upgrade.

Since I am 6'7" tall, my intention was not lowering my ride height with the Progressive shocks. To the opposite, I would like to increase my rear suspension travel a bit. I ride solo most of the time. As you may have noticed, the product information page reads “Heavy Duty shocks are recommended for bikes operated at or near the OEM maximum load rating over 50% of the time”. In view of this advice, I was inclined to buy the 444’s with standard springs. However, after exchanging a few e-mails with Progressive Suspension, I opted for the heavy duty springs. I got prompt replies and good advice. They recommend heavy duty springs for individual riders weighting 250+ pounds. I weigh 245 pounds and I carry about 25 pounds of stuff at all times in my saddlebags. Therefore, at least 270 pounds are always on board. I also consulted them on their 13.5” shocks, because my OEM shock size is 13”. They wrote: “you are not losing any sort of performance or hindering the capabilities of the bike with that half inch. If anything, just adding a bit more travel and comfortability”.

Revzilla shipped my order immediately. I installed my 13.5” heavy duty 444’s today. Installation was easy but if you also opt for the 13.5”, do not expect bolt-on installation in the strictest sense of the word. With OEM shocks removed and the bike on jack, the rear wheel did not drop low enough for the eyes of the 444’s to readily align. The rear wheel axle nut hit my Screaming Eagle Street Cannon slip-on, preventing further wheel drop. This was not a big deal though. Not even a deal at all, provided that the retaining screws of the slip-on are removed. This gave me enough clearance and my new shocks fitted nicely and trouble free. The provided bushings and washers were spot on.

I could not see the reference marks on the shocks, as shown at the instructions sheet. I made my own marks with a Dremel. With zero pre-Ioad adjustment (collars fully to the minimum), suspension sag with me on the bike and my usual stuff in the saddlebags exceeded 2”. Instructions call for 1” so I tightened the collars. After 6 full turns, sag dropped to 1.5”. My inner voice told me to test ride before proceeding.

The ride was not particularly plush but nothing like harsh, either. I went to bumpy roads that I am familiar with. I crossed patches and undulations where my OEM shocks were occasionally and slightly bottoming out at their optimal setting. The 444’s did not bottom at all. Not even once. Not even slightly. I stopped, I removed my saddlebags and I returned to zero pre-load to see how much or how hard they would bottom. To my surprise, bottoming was occasional and slight. This was comparable to the optimal setting of my OEM air shocks. I knew that at this setting of my 444’s (no pre-load), sag was in excess of 2”. I tried 3 full turns. This resulted in a bit more comfortable ride, again without any bottoming at all. I left the pre-load adjusters as they are, for now. I need to ride more, under different conditions, to find their “sweetest spot”. On the other hand, I know that I will be able to ride comfortably without bottoming, because I already am. The rear end appeared to be reassuringly planted in a few sharp curves. I will further test this on fast sweepers before finalizing my setup. This “sweetest spot” will be my solo setting. I will note it down for easy re-adjustment after a two-up tour. I think two-up will require maximum pre-load but I shall see. Once I know my final solo and two-up settings, the mission will be accomplished. I will no longer be obsessed with suspensions settings and maintenance. I will no longer have to resort to my suspension air pump every so often.

This is what I was expecting from Progressive 444 shocks before buying them. I am already confident that they fit the bill. Longevity is another matter. Only time and miles will tell. However, lifetime warranty must be suggestive of robustness. Or, so I hope.

Just what the doctor ordered
What can I say, Progressive suspension has been doing it right for a long, long time. I purchased the 13.5 super heavy duty shocks for my 00" Road King. I wanted to raise up the back end for more cornering abilities and have less sag with my lady, well these took care of that.

Additionally, these super heavy duty springs are really new and there's not much info out there but I had run Progressive 440's in the past and was super happy. I run 2 up 70% of the time doing long distance rides and loaded down were probably 500-525 range? These shocks have no problem makin that ass end fell nice and secure, no more side shifting.

Kudos to RevZilla they have become my new online retailer and mmm would def. recommend these heavy duty Progressive 444's.

Incredible upgrade in ride comfort.
I got these for my 2015 Road King. Stock length. Don't need my saddlebags or floorboards dragging on the ground.

Great investment
Got these put on my tour bike after a 1500 mile run that busted up my kidney's with the stock shocks. Huge difference right away, not even dialed in yet. Wife enjoys the ride a lot more now also. Revzilla folks were awesome, I needed to change size of shock and they swapped them out with no problems, made it super easy, even gave me some good advice on which type to purchase. On a side note, lowered the rear 1/2 an inch and no more wind buffeting for the wife and got the cruiser comfort on my tour bike, still far better than the stock air shocks.
