Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic

1 Answer

Lowering FLHTCUI I would like to lower my bike a little, feet aren't quite flat on the ground. Seat is one option, but would like more padding in seat not less and that would raise me up more. Been looking at lowering shocks from Harley, but for 275.00 not that crazy about them. Does anybody know, or used any of the lowering kits or the aftermarket lowering shocks for 89.95 to 125.89 on EBay?

I lowered my 06 Street Glide 1 1/4" in the rear, using a bolt on, adjustable lowering kit that I purchased on Ebay. $100.00, including shipping. Took less than 30 minutes to install, and can be returned to stock, in about the same amount of time. It lowers Touring bikes either 1 1/4", or 2 1/2". If you ride 2-up, you'll have to keep some more air pressure in the rear shocks, to prevent bottoming. The SG shocks are 12" stock. The FLHTC/U has 13" shocks stock. The brand of lowering kit is R.U.B. Excellent quality, quick delivery. Hope this helps.

Feet do not touch flat on the ground. Need to lower ride height by a couple or few inches


The ride height is determined by a couple of things, the suspension and the seat. If you can, try to find a different seat because lowering the bike effects the handling characteristics so much. Anytime you lower a bike, you reduce the "lean angle" which hampers you when you make turns. If you can't find a lower saddle, you can lower the bike. It depends on what year and model bike it you have. You didn't say. There are companies that make lowering kits for most bikes. Progressive is one of the more popular companies.

Good Luck
