Default H-D Premium Ride shocks

Hello everyone. Does anybody know what the shock travel is for both the lowered versions, and the standard height version.
Thanks for any and all replies.

4" for the full length and 3" of travel for the lowered shocks.

The owner of the dealership I use has used them for about a year now, he put a set on last years bike and this year he is riding a cvo sg and they are stock on that bike.

He likes them and says they are better ride than the Progressive 940. They sell both and he pushes the HD even though they are less expensive.

Im looking for shocks but Im not sure about 1 for compression and 1 for rebound like this set up is.

I think Ill go to the Terry Cable Shocks that Drew at Dr V Twin has recommended to me if I change. I just changed the shock oil to Se and lowered the air pressure to 12 psi and I like the ride better than before, so maybe Ive saved a few $

I am using the standard height ones (13") on my Street Glide now.
As mentioned, the lowered (12") are what comes on the CVO Street Glide.

I can say the 13" ones are a huge improvement in ride quality over the standard air shock system. Especially when riding two-up.

Just noticed someone selling a pair (basically new) in the Classified Section under Touring. He's asking $400.

If my suspension solution for the rear is going to be that much from pretty much anyone, then I think it's time to look into n Arnott Air Ride system.......
