Any ideas for aftermarket shocks on a lowered Softail? I use the adapters that lengthen the shock mounts but the stock shocks seem to bottom out rather easily. Bike is about 1" to 1 1/4" lower in the rear than stock. I wouldn't mind a firmer ride if it meant no more clunks over bumps in the road. Any suggestions??

I hear this complaint a lot. I weigh about 280 and my wife ain't exactly a spinner at 150, I haven't bottomed out but once or twice in real tight curves with reverse camber surfaces.

I think that most guys don't know that they can adjust the rate and the length of softail shocks. Talk to your service department.

I ride this FAsTBOY hard regularly and hardly ever scrape.
