Burley Shocks

A while ago, I was trying to find info on shocks and the bike's stance. I wanted to go from hardtail struts to shocks so I could use the bike as a commuter. I purchased a set of Burly 10.5" shocks...

The ride is good...compared to hardtail, it's smoother and there are no spine busting bumps. I am 270 pounds and have only bottomed out the shocks a couple times on huge bumps...they do not make a heavy duty spring option...

They are plug and play with no modification. The only thing I had to modify was my taillight/license plate bracket (which was easy)......

Stance, for me, is perfect...low without rubbing AT ALL...I'm running a 170 rear...

i have a set on my X. bottomed out a few times, i just cranked up the tension on them & that helped out. FF is also running a set on his SS.

if anyone wants to find them. go over to egay & just search Burley Slammers. you want the ones made for a Sportster. this mod takes about 10 min to change them out.
