Hey guys I'm gonna lower my 750 with sportster 10.5" shocks my question is it direct fit and is there a specific year I need to order, ALSO, if I decide to go 10" what options do I have for ordering 10" shocks? (I weigh 190, dont turn aggressive, I'm not worried about dragging)

You can get a good deal on savage 650 shock used on Ebay. They are 2 inches shorter. Thats what I used. Easy swap, rides good and they are slightly smaller in profile so they look better to me as well.

Beats $300+ for a pair.

Better than home made lowering brackets.

Bolt on. I moved the rectifier because the swingarm hits it

Jrpostell I agree. I literally just put a set on this evening and the stance is perfect without the shocks looking so bulky. I will have to watch the swingarm. But it looks GOOD with the LS650 shocks!!!! e
