How long has the shock been on there? hmm almost 4 years.Gas Man said:Yeah...how long has that been on there?
I saw that last week, I have not had any problems with the shock, and its so much better then the factory. Thanks for posting that twisty. I hope they get the engineering department on that and come back to the motorcycle side of things.twisty said:Here is a Twisty "Did you know" Fox is no longer making sportbike shocks? They gave up because their shock failed under testing by many magazines. Just a little side note. Hope you didnt pay to much for it.
yup i ran fox on my old hurricane and gsxr 750...they were a real good aftermarket rear shock.... tons of adjustments and when setup right, it was like they repaved the new NHIS track with its nasty bumbs going from the oval to the infield sections.....I also had the luxury of having Al Ludington (dave sadowskis old tuner and friend) help me set it up ........SpeedWerks.com said:Back in the day, fox was a very good shock ... you used to see a lot of very fast guys using them at the track. We ran them for years on FZR400's before Penske came along.
They just fell behind the curve as sporkbike chassis and tires changed, and didn't want to spend the R&D money to keep up (it is a much smaller market than dirt).

Its impossible to tune the suspension for the street.SVupON1 said:I'm sure mine could use fine tuneing, but I'm no expert with ALL the settings on the shock.
I have it set as good as I'm going to get it then. If I need to make the ride harder or softer I can just turn the dial with my finger, but I just leave it alone for the most part.jeeps84 said:Its impossible to tune the suspension for the street.
There is to many variables to contend with.
Its a different story for the track.
