The 412 Series shocks are simply the best value shock there is on the market today. The 412's simple, durable design means they will be an improvement to your motorcycle's suspension performance for miles to come.

The double wall steel body construction with nitrogen charged, multi-staged velocity sensitive valving gives you smooth, consistent damping. A five position cam style preload adjuster lets you dial in your ride whether you're a light rider or heavy hitter.

Select bike models have multiple options like full show chrome or black covers, chrome or black springs in progressive rate, Standard or Heavy Duty, and lengths from 11" to 14.2", there is sure to be a 412 that's right for you and your ride. Not all combinations are available for all bike models.

- Precision double walled, steel bodies to protect the inner cylinder and provide consistent damping.
- Choose the length you want (11.0" to 14.25") to suit your handling requirements or for a lowered, custom look. (Depending on application).
- Five position cam style preload adjuster.
- Precision ground, hard chromed steel shaft for strength and durability.
- Multi-stage, velocity sensitive internal valving for the ride and handling you want.

New Ride... I hope so.

I've only had three rides on them thus far.  I am undecided at this point.  The gentle dips are handled nicely, the pot hole or separated asphalt feel a bit jarring.  It could be because the front fork springs have not yet to be installed but it still feels a bit rough on the back.  Perhaps the wrong choice for my needs.   I will certianly update once the fork springs are in to see if this makes a difference.

Great Product

Just threw these on today to replace my worn out old air shocks and give the bike a one inch drop.  Installation took about fifteen minutes and didn't involve anything more than jack it up, pull 'em off, put 'em on.  Pipes and bags fit great afterwards and there were no clearance issues.  The 412's are smaller around than stock and I actually like that look as it keep the focus off of the mundane pieces.  Ride is better than it has been in a long time.  Should have done this long ago.

My air shock started leaking air on the right side. I found out theses are NOT repairable so I ordered a set of Heavy Duty 412 Progressives from Scootworks. I ordered 12.5 inch versus the Nomad norm of 13 and the ride and feel of the bike is noticably better. I have them set up two notches on the shock spring adjustments and for me at 225 that is great.
