The affordable Arnott® Smooth Ride Series adjustable motorcycle air suspension kit for custom baggers was designed for 2009-2019 Harley-Davidson® touring models with aftermarket stretched saddle bags. The Arnott Custom Bagger Kit’s shocks provide an extra inch of shock travel so extended bags won’t scrape while turning corners, yet provide that slammed look while parked.
At the core of this system are two custom-valved 14” nitrogen charged, mono-tube shock absorbers with an Internal Floating Piston (IFP) to separate the gas from the oil which eliminates oil foaming and cavitation for a better ride. Using a patent-pending design, Arnott adds a rugged Goodyear® air spring to provide the flexibility of setting the height of your rear suspension based on your weight, size, road conditions, and riding preference, helping you to ensure safety through enhanced control and stability. The Arnott system provide a crisp, sporty, ride plus the luxury of inflating or deflating your rear shocks with an onboard compressor and toggle switch.
Arnott pairs your shocks with a small but powerful compressor, custom-designed mounting bracket, and air distribution valve block which includes a muffler to control how fast air is released. Each kit includes everything you need for a fast and flawless installation; user manual, fused wiring harness and relay assembly, all necessary tubing, cable ties, fittings, bolt covers, protective aluminum covers and mounting accessories. Each shock is custom-crafted and rigorously tested in Arnott’s Florida manufacturing facility and is backed by Arnott’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. ELEVATE YOUR RIDE.®
PLEASE NOTE: These shocks may allow the rear axle to come in contact with an exhaust that is routed in an OE configuration below the saddle bags. For maximum ride height benefits it is recommended that you use an aftermarket side dump exhaust.
