This technology coupled with a linear rate spring allow for consistent feel through the damper stroke and the ability to withstand extreme temperature ranges and heavy loads. An engineered jounce bumper with a built-in metal cup also help smooth out and control bottoming. From pounding pavement around town to hammering around the tarmac on your next race day, the 490 is the perfect choice for your performance demand!

Features:

  • Nitrogen-charged
  • Lightweight aluminum body
  • Hand threaded preload adjuster
  • Deflective disc damping
  • Adjustable rebound damping

Notes:

  • Depending on model, your stock shock length is 11" 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
  • 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

Best purchase yet
I'm a heavier rider 230# on a 2013 Iron with a 2up setup, Just riding solo with the potholes here in NYC was painful. I put these on today and confirmed the factory settings. WOW! what a dream and without a doubt the best money spent on my bike yet. I also added an in by going with the 13" over the stock 12" shocks. A must have for any rider.

Like butter
One of the best investments you can make. These shocks are great-Took off the stock 48 shocks and it is a night/day difference. The ride is smooth, the back end of the bike stays put-no more back aches. Adjustments are easily made, installation was a breeze, and price range is decent.

Great Upgrade
Just installed a set of 12” Progressive 490 Sport Shocks on my 2016 XL883N yesterday. My initial impression from riding to work and around town, these shocks are a vast improvement over OEM! I was concerned about addding additional ride height because I like the stance of the bike but the 12” shocks look great. They did increase lean angle and steering quickness which is a plus also!

Have a Sportser 48. It was way too low, minimal suspension travel. These did the trick. Gained both ground clearance and comfort.

What is the difference between 12 inches an d 13 inches of this rear suspension in terms of comfort ability?
A C on Nov 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 1" of additional travel is a significant improvement, especially with an already limited-travel bike.
