I thought the SE EG has 12" shocks stock. I'm not even sure H-D makes air shocks in 11".JCZ said:I ride an 04 Screamin Eagle Electra Glide and went from the stock 11" air shocks (which is a rough ride on the SEEG) to the 11" Progressive 440 Heavy Duty and I am not impressed. If I had it to do over again, I'd keep that money and buy something useful.
How do you find the difference?rmhalmaint said:HDC, I also have a 04 custom and have put the 12" 440's as same size as stock, but changed out to 11.5 412's for a lower drop in height.
That's why I bought the 412's and I'm happy with my choice. If I can just get buddy to put fluids back in his bike and get out and ride, I'll compare to the 440's. He drained the fluids when he pulled into his garage after our return trip from Sturgis. Sheesh!Michael Benis said:How do you find the difference?
I've got 440 12" shocks on the Road KIng and they are much better than stock, but I;ve never been sure whtehr I spent more than I need to

What setting are you using?JCZ said:Good catch......I stand to be corrected (not sure what the hell I was thinking when I put 11".......that would be a really rough ride. My air shocks were 12" and my Progressives 440 Heavy Duty (based on what the rep at Progressive told me inconsideration of 220 lbs. and a touring bike that usually has a passenger) are also 12". So, in both cases, yes, we have one inch less travel than an Electra Glide or Ultra Classic.
My air shocks, with 35 or 40 lbs. of air, were more cush than these 440's with their rebound clunk every time I hit a hole. Just a very rough ride for the money.

If I read right there are 4 settings.
Is 1 the lightest and 4 the stiffest?
If so were are you and were have you tried?
