I need to get an eye to eye measurement on the struts they put in. Its extremely low right now. Probably to the point that a shock would be ineffective if it was that length. It looks good but comfort and performance are more important to me in the long run. Ill send you a pm and see what you might have. Ive looked at a set of 12.5" sporster shocks local, but worry they will be sprung to soft for the 1500. I dont care to replace bushings but don't wanna get into shock rebuilds, different springs, etc. Oh and the Picture you asked for. This was 2 days ago when I brought her home. Shes now in the garage cozy and warm.Hi...eBay if full of motorcycle stuff...All depends what your looking for...If you want to lower it a little...I would look for some 10.5" to 11.5"...A lot of Harley shocks work on a Vulcan...How nice of a pair are you looking for...A lot of Vulcan owners spend big money for progressive shocks...I have a small budget , so most of my mods are done as cheap as possible...I might have some shocks around here if your interrested in seeing what I have...Just P M me your email and/or phone number and I'll either text or email some pictures of what I have that will fit your bike...OK...Oh yea, we love pictures here...Hint Hint Hint...Good Luck...Later
Thank you I will look into those.I've been happy with my new Progressive springs, 2007 Vn1500 Classic.
Great pictures...thanks...Do you need that left side cover...with those bars...I would look into shaving those ears (Air Filters)...If you want to keep that fender like it is...I wouldn't be going higher than 11.5" on the shocks...I'm up in the Maryland area...If you
ever get up this way ( Truck Driver ) for any reason...give me a yell and I'll give you my
phone number...Well...is she running good or what...? Later

I put a set of Progressive 412's on my 1500 with the HD springs (never get the regular ones) for about $225 and I put the Progressive springs in the front with new oil. The bike is night and day on both ends from what it was. The bike doesn't dive in corners anymore and it handles much better. Also no bottoming out with 2 up riding. Cheap fun!I recently picked up a 1500A that some genius has hard tailed with struts. What would be your recommendation for replacements? Something a lil beefier than stock would be preffered. Thanks guys
I have these stock Kawasaki air shocks if you like. I had them on my last 1500, which I put back all stock before I sold it. My current 1500 already has these already.
