The Vivid will fit. Saw one already on one I think on Pinkbike somewhere. Will try to find the pic. Plus after owning a Glory in the past I know what will fit and will not. I would get a B Tuned Vivid if you plan to get one for your Glory.

2007 glory fr, the dhx 4.0 didnt feel good on my last ride so I am going to give it one more shot after a buddy/bike mechanic tuned my suspension and see how it goes.

B Tune is the same they are running on the Sunday factory. Yes the Vivid is way better than the Fox 5.0. You would want to run a 350 to 400 lb spring.

Tunes:
• Tune A: 2.0 - 2.4 Leverage Ratio
• Tune B: 2.4 - 2.85 Leverage Ratio
• Tune C: 2.85 - 3.3 Leverage Ratio

the ratio on the glory is a bit higher than 2.85, 2.909 to be exact, wouldnt that necessitate a c??
I would go with the one a little lower like the B Tune. That would make the shock a little more sensitive on the Glory than the C Tune. I bet most people would not feel the difference though between all 3 Tunes on the Glory.

Hi FCFinder..I bought the Vivid 5.1 for my glory but I am not sure it come with B tune or another tuning. I can check with my LBS and see could they change the B-tune for me.

By the way, I am not sure did the 350 or 400 lbs which will be suitable for me. I weight around 72 Kg or below 160 lbs with gear?

Finely Etched here. On the end of the # you will have an A,B, or C



Would try a 350lb spring first and if it is not light enough get the 300lb. Remember you want as light as a spring you can run then set the damping to make up for what you need.
