That's a cane creek spring?
It is a Ti spring without a brand, hand marked 420x2.25, 193g. The ID is a bit bigger than my other CC springs.
What did you use for adapters?
Where did you get it?
I took a gamble at pinkbike classifieds.
That's where I got my Ti spring way back when.
Alternate ghetto approach - found some conical plumbing rubber gaskets with 1 1/4" OD on the narrow end.
Anyone else seen a discrepancy between the base tunes published online and the printed ones in the leaflet supplied with the shock? The online version is "revision A", the leaflet says "revision C". The difference is two clicks out for the same spring, perhaps a different oil weight?
Where you seeing these online?
I guess when you enter the code printed on the shock?
Nice. Tried the same route about a year ago, ended a bit higher if I remember correctly.
You ever actually done this? The only place I've ever seen on fox's website to do this just takes you to some genric setup info with zero information about specific tunes.
For instance. http://www.ridefox.com/help.php?m=bike&ref=findbycode
That's the code on my fork
ccdh spits me out the rear shock from a 2013 Banshee Legend.
Should try running a fork on that there bike instead woo, figure that's your problem.
Yes, I have. But my newest Fox product is a 2014 DHX RC4 (CJKP) and now it only says "No results for 2014 Factory Series DHX". I think to remember, that it showed different results about 4 months ago, i.a. exploded views and service instructions. But my mind is not to be trusted.
But maybe @StiHacka will enlighten us.
Edit: Dammit, I was at the wrong place, I was at the upgrade options site. Your link gets me all the stuff mentioned above. Just under the headline this can be found:
2014, DHX F-S, RC4-K, Fox, AM, 8.500, 2.500, CM, RM
It's not entirely correct but I think to be able to figure the following:
2014 - Model year
DHX F-S - not sure
RC4-K -is RC4 Kashumbawumba
Fox - is ... Fox!
AM - no idea
8.500 - total length, not correct, it's a 7.875" one
2.500 - travel, not correct, it's a 2.25" one
CM - Compression tune Medium
RM - Rebound tune Medium
F-S factory settings?
Note the "2016" part of the URI above. My shock is 2017 edition.
Update: when I enter my shock code c8hg, I get the following product name and the help page contains info that is in sync with the leaflet: http://www.ridefox.com/help.php?m=bike&id=693
2017, DHX2, F-S, TiN, 2pos-Adj, FOX, AM, 7.875, 2.25, CM, Orange Logo
F-S means the shock is Factory Series, or Performance Series (P-Se) or whatever level of shock/fork it is basically.
You can cross reference the tune it shows for your shock with the exploded drawings of that valving arrangement in the Parts/Drawings sections here to see exactly what shim arrangement constitutes what tune.
Interesting that they seem to have changed them.
I'd searched for a starting point for my DHX2 and I think I recall it saying 8-11 clicks, now it seems to state 10-13. Explains why it took me ages to get something that vaguely worked.
You guys have magic shocks. I just got a dhx2 with czlz
Go ahead. type it in. Just go ahead. Zero info on the tune other than what oem account it was stolen from to sell on ebay.
Support your local emtb community!
Knew that was coming.
Wrong, mine has an even more troublesome history. Came directly from an ex DH pro gone endurpo guy from Shermany. Hint, it was used in Ghost bikes.
Pretty sure my next fox product code will just be FUHAHA
I hope mine will be BONG.
Just out of curiosity, how did the base settings worked for you? Mine was pretty close but it felt better with -1 click on all four knobs.
Oui, But if anyone else cares to share his experience, I won't mind either.
Whats it like to pedal with?
Bike pedals and pumps betterer now. It has a significantly firmer mid-stroke support than the Topaz so I am sure that helps.
Haven't ridden it yet. Tomorrow is 4 weeks since some broken bones so I'll get out this weekend. Had to bring makita to some shock hardware to get things going this week.
So I decided to actually write down my current settings so I had them recorded. But then trying to set them back to the same settings it appears that for comp and rebound both the 3mm and 6mm adjusters are moving both at once, I don't recall having this issue before.
e.g. move the 6mm 11 clicks and the 3mm is moving with it.
Suggestions? Or am I being dumb about something
Okay just ridden it
I think I need a lighter spring. I've never backed out the ls comp on a dhx2 all the way. I just went there.
This is on your Patrol? What weight spring are you running?
Yep, patrol with the revised non suck leverage link. 400lb spring
I'm fraction of a mm over the right shock length. I stuck a spacer in a 9.5x3 shock to get the right size. I ordered some offset bushings to drop the rear and a bit so maybe a little more ass bias will help. I might try to track down a 375 in the meantime.
I have a 375 Ti Fox spring for sale on PB. Will happily knock a few $ off to avoid PB sale.
Now about my adjusters both turning at the same time, normal or not and fix suggestions if not?
