    i recently ordered a pair of 12 inch progressive 412s for my 09 streetglide using the fitment chart but i am concerned about bottoming out. What is the stock shock length on the 09 flhx ? i bought the standard duty as i am 200 lbs and ride 90% of the time w no passenger....just wondering if i should have gone w 12.5 ?

    I measured my 09 King (FLHR). They measure at 12.5" centered.

    Were you old ones air over oil like my 09 King, but isn't the SG lower by 1" to start with.?

    I have No problem with the stock ones I use on my King.

    I weigh in at 200 give or take a few pounds. Do a lot of two up and Big T-bag full= 400 lbs. easily. I would not have any desire to change out from Air over oil to go to the spring type 412's. Many do and like them but I'm happy where I am.

    To each their own...
