Rear shock lowering brackets and progressive shocks
I have an 05' sportster 1200 with progressive 412 shocks in the 11.5" length that came on it when I bought it (not sure what stock shock length is). I am wanting to lower the bike more, but I also want to be able to ride 2 up here and there with the woman. I like the slammed look (coming from a slammed shadow 750 that was a pure solo machine) and would love to drop it another inch, but not sure if even a good shock would be suitable at 10.5" for 2 up. I have thought about keeping the progressives and using a bracket to lower the bike instead of swapping shocks. I have tried searching but haven't found much about which brackets people use if at all.
How many use lowering brackets in the rear with success? The good type that are welded and not bent. Pics would be great too! To me with the 11.5" the bike already looks too high
