The OEM shocks on my 09 custom sportster were 11-3/4" eye to eye... Don't know much about the other years or mod. lengths, but I do think they are different for different ones... I do know that the 09s had what was supposed to be improved suspension... The forks on my 09 are Showa, not sure about the shocks though... I will look and see later though and let you know...
PS-Checked and couldn't find a brand name on the shocks...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

|slimvulcanrider||jeryy, dropping 2-3" on the rear doesn't effect cornering or bumps that great.. there is almost 8" of room between the tire and fender. and dropping the rear 2-3" only drops the pegs 1 inch if that much. now, dropping the front and rear 2" will drop the pegs down enough to start worrying about twisties...|

|VN750Rider/Jerry||All Savage/LS650/S40 shocks are the same all years. Watch out for corners and speed bumps.|

|The DEUCE||I installed a set of Progessive 412 lowering shocks that come off of a Sportster. The mounting eyes were slightly larger than the mounting bolts on the VN750 and I have had no issues of the shock mounts moving. I also raised the forks to level out the bike and she handles like a dream.|

|slimvulcanrider||sportser shocks are direct bolt up.. i dropped my rear a total of 4" with out the need to drop the front... but i suggest having the progressive springs on hand in case you don't like the way it handles.|
