I found some hard struts for Harley's on ebay of course. I heard that Harley struts would fit our bikes. But I wasn't able to find the bolt sizes for our bikes. These struts are 10.5, which would lower the bike by 2 inches. The bolt holes are 1". Would these fit? Has anyone lowered the bike that low? If so any rubbing issues?

The stock shock bolts are 14 mm if you want to run struts, make them, it should cost less than 20 buckrs to make... Going with struts, u can do up to 4 inches without fender mods, but i dont recommend any thing over 2 without moding the front forks to bring the trail back to almost stock

I went with the Harley struts. Can't remember what size bolt holes but I do recall still having to drill them out a little bigger.
My fender is bobbed so I'm not sure if a full fender would rub. I'm running a bigger tire and the clearance is CLOSE. I wish I would had cut the side of the fenders down. (Still may do this)

Slim is right about making your own. If you have the ability...it looks pretty straight forward.

Just seen your ebay item.
Is the design/style what you like or are you just trying to find something that works.
I think I payed around 30 for mine and the guy even had a couple of colors that he would powder coat it for free.
Just throwing another option at ya.
