Fox Shox Upgrades
« on: September 25, 2014, 08:24:30 PM »
Hmmmmmm,might just be the ticket for most  using 2.5 or larger instead of bypasses. Check out here-  http://www.ridefox.com/upgrades.php?m=offroad&t=shocks&ref=topnav     For the 2.0 crowd,the second pic will likely be on blue buggy soon.  I think I finally got this posted correctly. LOL!!!!

i really like it and they will work good for many but you still have to be pretty close in your valving to properly utilize them. the down side for those of us with air shocks is what is listed on there site won't work. they are all for emulsion shock absorbers or coil overs with 7/8" shafts. or an upgrade for remote res shocks. air shocks don't come in remote res because of the psi levels at full bump.

I'm shedding a tear for you guys.  ;D Really,really , I AM!!  rofl rofl rofl rofl ;D ;D actually the valving can be pretty far off if you read the adjustment range. Pretty much from full soft to very firm.Yes a fully tuned ,to the place you usually ride ,may well be best but for hitting different terrains regularly or even during a ride  this would be a fine compromise,IMO.

however adding an emulsion shock absorber with the dsc adjuster might be like and cheaper than an external bypass shock. just an idea

getting it close would be the best always but your right quick easy adjustments for diff terrains would be a huge plus!

with bypasses you have more unsprung weight

But they work so much better it doesn't really matter. Those clickers work solely of shaft displacement. Using them to tune a soft stack will create very high cylinder pressures. Your seals will suffer accordingly...........
