Get Ohlins Suspension for your Harley Davidson! We installed the Ohlin's FKS 226 Harley NIX 22 Front Cartridge Kit on my 2014 Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special. After riding my Harley with the newly installed Ohlin's front suspension on a 10-day, 4,000-mile road trip, and on many different road surfaces, I can highly recommend this suspension and decided to carry Ohlin's right in the Law Abiding Biker Store. In our tutorial video, we show you exactly how to install Ohlin's front suspension and how to adjust things so you have the proper preload and proper rebound dampening.
We also installed the Ohlins 13″ S36 Blackline Rear Shocks on my 2014 Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special. I highly recommend these shocks and decided to carry Ohlin's right in the Law Abiding Biker Store. In our tutorial video, we show you exactly how to install Ohlin's rear shocks and how to adjust things so you have the proper sag and proper rebound dampening.
I was not happy with the overall ride of my 2014 Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special, which came with the standard front suspension Harley has used for many years now on its touring models, which has no adjustments. Unfortunately, it is what it is. I wanted a smoother ride, better cornering abilities, and adjustable preload and dampening, all of which the Ohlin's FKS 226 Harley NIX 22 Front Cartridge Kit has! Upon ordering from the Law Abiding Biker Store, you'll get to choose an Ohlin's front suspension spring that will be adequate for your particular weight.
I was also not happy with the standard manually adjustable rear shocks that Harley has used for many years now on its touring models. I wanted a smoother ride, better cornering abilities, and adjustable preload and dampening, all of which the Ohlins 13″ S36 Blackline Rear Shocks have!
WHY I CHOSE 13″ SHOCKS:
A Harley Street to Road Glide Special comes stock with 12″ shocks and you can certainly maintain the 12″ when choosing your Ohlin's rear shocks from the Law Abiding Biker Store. However, I ride and corner my Harley hard and am constantly dragging floorboards and supports. By installing the 13″ Ohlin's rear shocks, I raised my Street Glide Special 1″ which gives me more lean angle. It's definitely noticeable when riding. You really can't visually tell the bike has been raised 1″. Note that Harley models like the Ultra Classic come stock with 13″ shocks. The special models come with 12″ shocks.
I was absolutely blown away at how much smother my Harley rode and cornered after installing Ohlin's suspension! I did not realize what a difference good shocks would make! Wow, it was more than I even expected and I highly recommend upgrading your Harley shocks to Ohlin's! It even got rid of most of the bagger wobble while cornering at faster speeds. My Harley just rode like a completely different bike!
