Dont think so due to the need of running a Remote Reservoir on that frame. There just want be any room for the Vivids Reservoir.
the 2002 and 2003 dh teams had remote reservoir shocks. I know that a fifth, manitou and the old RS would fit on those years. It was just a pain since you had to remove the shock to adjust it.
Nah, you don't have to run a remote reservoir, before 04 they came with regular manitou swingers and for 04-05 i guess they realised it was a bitch to do any adjustments so they came out with the remote thing. There is definitely area for a reservoir at the top, I was just wondering if anyone knew if anything would contact it on full compression and that sorta stuff.
like i know a 5th element definitely works, so does anybody know how the vivid reservoir compares in size to that? thanks
Rather than edit my own post, I'll just correct it. I meant to say piggyback shocks on the 2002 and 2003. My brain must have disconnected from my typing fingers.
sram has blueprints with measurements on their site...with a little care you should be able to see if it fits.
Yes a vivid will fit with plenty of room and you can reach the adjustments with ease.
SICK, thanks for the post man thats exactly what i was looking for, now Im stoked on getting a new shock haha
What length did you use? The stock shock is 9.0 x 3.0?
As far as I know the Vivid comes only in 9.5 x 3.0 or 8.75 x 2.75.
stock would be 9.5 X 3 IIRC. 9 X 3 is NOT a common size at all...in fact, it would be a custom item, only available from Avalanche that I know.
I think the old swinger was 9x2.75.
I used a 8.75x2.75 which dropped the BB to around 14 inches.
The manitou revox and swinger x6 have the 9.0" x 2.75" measurement i believe. Heard that the new revox was a pretty good shock, but it runs for a little more than the vivid does.
