    Ultima shock absorbers

    I need some new shocks. Mine are worn out. Any one any experience of these or recommend another brand? My budget is around 300/350 but i can spend a bit more for the right set up. Bikes a 92 FXSTC. https://www.customcruisers.com/conte...st1989-99.html

    Yeah Hagons are excellent, but AFAIK they don't make a Softail shock, as they are fundamentally different to conventional shocks.

    Re: Ultima shock absorbers

    I’m very interested in this thread, as the shocks on my ‘89 FXST are well past their best...
    Like the OP, my budget doesn’t run to much over £300.

    Re: Ultima shock absorbers

    Same for me folks,
    '91 Softail, and when me and the Mrs, are out on the bike, it "Sits" low at the back end, original shocks on the bike.
    I've looked, but not into proper study, the adjustable Progressive Shocks, not cheap either, but are they worth the potential £600?
    Mostly, it's me and the Mrs out on the bike, so that has to be taken into account...

    Just put Hagons on my 81 Shovel. Well impressed. Ordered them on a Thursday, delivered FOC the following Tuesday. Customer service outstanding. The guy I spoke with 'Dave' was more interested in getting me the right shock for my bike and requirements (my weight, pillion, luggage etc) rather than just flogging me a pair of shocks. They will build a shock to your needs including length. I went to 13" from 12", different bike altogether and the ride is brilliant. Mine were £178 all inc.
    Take a look at their website or give them a call.

    Hagon don’t make a shock to fit Softail’s... correct me if I’m wrong!

    Has nobody got any ideas on this..?!?

    There must be a good few Evo Softails out there, that need new shocks...
