Rear Shock Length?

Hi all. Does anyone know what the Length of the Stock rear shocks are? I looked at Progressive Suspension, They claim 13". But I seem to recall measuring mine(Back awhile ago) and came to just under 12. I have Saddle Bags, Luggage Rack with Trunk bag. And carry at least 10 pounds of Tools, Tire pump, First Aid kit, Charging cables, Etc.


Thank you

I was going for the same ones but I think I'm sending the 750 to a new home with my good friend. At least keeping it in the circle.

I just added a forty eight to the garage and don't see myself wanting to ride the street much. That said I'll still be sad to see it go.

One less payment means more money to put into the 1200

My Situation wont allow me to Trade for at least another year. Too much Negative Equity. And my Warranty is running out on Sept 5 this year.

You always get hosed on trade anyway. Better to sell it outright or just keep it and pay it off before getting another

Part of my Problem is, When I left the Deposit on Aug 18 2015, I was approved for financing at one rate. Because of that Fuel Pump Recall, Dealer wouldn't sell it to me. Parts arrive in the beginning of Sept. I go down on Sept 5 to do the deal on my day off. That Promo Offer Expired. And I ended up with an Interest Rate 4% Higher. I got Hosed right from the start.

I decided to return the Shocks to Revzilla. Shipped them back today. Need the money towards an Extended Warranty
