They should fit, just measure the length of the shock from eyelet to eyelet. if you don't have the measurements of the other bike just call a local dealer to find out the standard length

Check the oil level. Sounds like you have over filled. Eventually you will blow the fork seals. Also could be caused by aspirated oil. Did you bleed the forks when you put the new oil in? What you are experiencing is called packing, or ramping. Real common problem with suspension tha has air in the system, low or high oil level, oil that is too thick or thin. Service them again. When you pull the fork caps off, look to see if the oil is foamy. Good luck.

Progressive is a good brand. Here's a link to a page with a number of good quality shocks on it.
the job of replacing the shocks is not difficult. Just do one shock at the time.

Harley usually uses a 12.5" shock but that could change from model to model and they don't list "shock length" in their specs. The best thing you could do it go to a dealer or find someone that has a stock bike and measure the front end height and rear shock length. Sorry but that's all I got.
