I have two different set on mines, Bravo and E-302.

The gas type E-302 is notably better than the Bravo in turn of handling, reflecting from the price.
Bravo looks very similar to OE with the adjustment arm.

The only issue I had was the length. Initally, I got a set of E-302 for my 80' RT which is 330 mm compare to stock should be 340mm.
I took the bike for a 5 days 2300 miles trip with the new shocks. The rear tries got almost wore out due to the weight shifting to the back.
I weight 140 lbs, and no top case.
After the trip, I ordered another set of Bravo to replace it and put the E-302 on my /7.
They didn't have the 340mm in stock and I was told the 350mm will fit. Yes, 350mm fits and does make the bike rides different, I don't know better or not.
With 350mm, my short legs got do more work when bike is not running.

They are good shocks for the money
