I wouldn't do it. just took mine off 02 rk. unless you don't mind 25 lbs. air in shocks. was still rubbing with 20 lbs. and I weigh 160. takes the air suspension ride away. also found unless you have a backrest there is alot of back strain on long rides unless front is leveled also. I am picking up an 03 flhtc in a couple of weeks and am lowering the front 1 inch and using the tj's 1 inch rear kit. this was my experience .

I used a TJ 1 inch kit. 2000 RK Classic. No problems.
Had a motorcycle lift, and 1 friend helping. worked great. 45 minutes taking our time. Good luck.

This helped me get the leverage needed when pushing bike backwards
