Vt1100 and Burlys

So i decided to drop the back end of the Spirit using some very helpful info from others here. Ended up using the Burlys for an 88-2003 sportster like others have as well and they turned out awesome. took me all of 20 min to install and bolted right up. The ride honestly is better than with the stock shocks. Turned them all the way to stiffest setting and still way better than stock. Did not bottom out at all. Gave it a nice stance, and I dont have to do anything to kickstand. rear fender has about maybe 2" clearance from tire maybe less and about 1" or less when I sit on it. Thank you guys for the ideas. Im super happy with it.
When the Apocolypse finally arrives, will the 4 horsemen be on steel horses?

the left rear shock on mine decided to start leaking hydraulic fluid. Fortunately there was only so much in it for it to leak. The ones that are on it are after market but I cannot identify the manufacturer. I had been looking at getting some precision 412s but I like the look of these Burlys.


Pulled one of the shocks off this weekend. It is a progressive 412. I google warriored it up and apparently it's not uncommon for these shocks to leak. This seems weird to me because their website states that these are nitrogen charged... so what's all that hydraulic fluid doing in there?

Perhaps the set I have are older before they started charging them with nitrogen.
