## What psi should my Fox Float rp23 be at?

Pressurize your main air chamber to a minimum of 50 psi and no more than 300 psi.

### How do you adjust the Fox rp23 shock?

The read rebound knob adjust the rate at which the shock returns after compression. Turn the knob clockwise for slower rebound.

#### How much psi should I put in my Fox Float x2?

Sag is the amount your suspension compresses under your weight and riding gear. Sag should be set to ~30% of total shock travel.

…

Do not exceed 300 psi (17.2 bar), the maximum FLOAT X2 air pressure!

Suggested Sag Measurements | |
---|---|

Travel | 30% Sag |

51mm/ 2.00in | 15mm/ 0.60in |

55mm/ 2.25in | 17mm/ 0.68in |

**What psi should Fox shocks be?**

FoX shocks should be left at the factory setting of 200 psi of nitrogen.

**What is Propedal on Fox shock?**

Propedal is a marketing term created by FOX to describe a digressive compression damping force curve. Digressive force curves have been around long before bicycles had suspension. Digressive compression tunes use preloaded valving to build compression quickly in order to give a firmer feel at low shaft speeds.

## How do you measure rear shocks?

The most accurate method for shock measurement:

- Measure the eye to eye length.
- Attach a shock pump and slowly remove all the air from the shock.
- Compress the shock fully and measure the eye to eye length again.
- Subtract this measurement from the initial eye to eye length to find the usable stroke. (ie. 185 – 132.5 = 52.5)

### Do volume spacers affect sag?

Adding volume spacers will let you drop the air pressure, gain some sag but keep the natural frequency high enough to not let it wallow. Conversely, if you are sagging too much with the right natural frequency, then you need to increase air chamber volume and increase pressure.

#### How many clicks does Fox x2 have?

eight clicks

The new damper now has the same number of high-speed compression and rebound adjustment clicks as the brand’s GRIP2 damper forks (eight clicks) and has 16 clicks of low-speed rebound and compression damping adjustment.

**Is there a break in period for Fox shocks?**

Yes. There is normally a break in period for forks and shocks.

**What PSI should I run in my rear shock?**

The exact PSI you end up with depends on how plush/firm you want the rear shock to be, but a good starting point is 1 psi for 1 lbs in weight of the rider (including riding gear). Then just add/remove air to your liking.

## What happens if your shocks are too long?

The other problem is that if the shock absorber that has been fitted to the vehicle is too long, in this case the vehicle suspension could experience the shock absorber “Bottoming out”. This term is used when the shock absorber is fully compressed, but the suspension still has an allowed amount of travel to go.

### How do I choose the right shock size?

#### Do heavier riders need volume spacers?

If you’re a heavy rider and are constantly bottoming out at the air pressure that provides the correct amount of sag, a volume spacer or two adds the support you need.

**When should you add volume spacers?**

In a few words, if you’re bottoming out frequently, but your sag is correctly set, add a volume spacer to reduce air chamber volume and increase the rate of progression in your suspension.

**Does Fox Float X2 have lockout?**

It also has a high-flow main piston, linear damping and an independent lockout lever, which is firmer than the outgoing shock.

## How many volume spacers does Fox X2 have?

Depending upon the size of your X2 shock you will be able to fit between 3 and 7 pairs of these, some riders, particularly aggressive riders will benefit from more spacers.

### Are Fox shocks better than kings?

Compared to other shocks, Fox uses better seals, shock oil and shafts, but are considered one of the more expensive options on the market. However, with price comes quality and you “get what you pay for”. The Fox shafts are more durable which will prolong the life of the shock.

#### How long do Fox coilovers last?

Fox recommends having them rebuilt every 50,000 miles (or 80,467 kms) for street use and every 10,000 miles (or 16,093kms) for a 50/50 mix of street and off road use. That means these could be the last shocks you ever buy for your rig!

**What is the max psi for air shocks?**

150 PSI

Remove all riders and cargo. DO NOT exceed 150 PSI (1034 kPa) in the shock.

**Can you put air in Fox shocks?**

Fox air shocks should be charged with NITROGEN ONLY. Nitrogen will not hold moisture, and expands less as temperatures increase. DO NOT fill your shocks with compressed air because this will introduce moisture to the shock causing internal corrosion. Fox air shocks can be filled with 10psi to 500psi of Nitrogen.

## How do I choose shock length?

### Do I need longer shocks for a 2 inch lift?

If you are adding 2″ of lift in the rear then yes you would need longer shocks or you will be limiting your downtravel by 2″.

#### What happens if shocks are too short?

If the extended length of the shock absorber is too short it will “top-out” and reduce the extended travel. “Topping out” is the term used when the piston inside the shock absorber collides with the cylinder head.

**Should shocks be fully extended?**

This lengthens (or extends) the shock’s overall length. Ultimately, you want enough travel in your shock not to top it out or bottom it out. Your shock should never be fully extended or compressed through your suspension’s full range of movement.

**What do negative volume spacers do?**

Decreasing the negative volume makes the spring firmer before sag, but softer after sag. This will allow you to use more travel and should make the suspension less harsh in some situations.
