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.

Does Fox Float RP23 have lockout?

The RP23 has adjustable low-speed compression damping, not a lockout. The aim is to reduce pedal-induced bob while still allowing the shock to remain active over sharper hits.

Are Fox and RockShox bushings the same?

Fox hardware uses the poly IGUS bushing, but much older Fox hardware uses a steel bushing. RockShox hardware is about the same, but just uses one spacer with an integrated o-ring on each side, and a metal DU bushing.

What is a DU bushing?

DU® self-lubricating bushings offer very good wear and low friction performance over a wide range of loads, speeds and temperatures in dry running conditions. Bushing material suitable for lubricated applications. Anti-friction bearing suitable for linear, oscillating and rotating movements.

What is Propedal?

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.

Can you use rockshox mounting hardware on Fox?

Thankfully, Rockshox and Fox mounting hardware are cross compatible, but there’s a few differences that need to be noted before you simply purchase Fox hardware for a Rockshox shock.

Do I need 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. Reducing volume makes your suspension firmer sooner in the travel, increasing the spring rate in the mid and end-stroke.

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.

What PSI should my rear Fox shock be?

If the shock body retracts into the air sleeve near bottom-out after the air is released from the positive chamber, attach a FOX high pressure pump and pressurize the shock to 250psi (17 bar). If the shock does not fully extend, it is in a “stuck down” condition.

How do I know what size rear shock I need?

We can see the two measurements we need to take the first is the eye to eye distance. And the second is the stroke length which is detection of the shark.

What is Propedal on Fox shock?

What pressure should my Fox forks be?

Sag should be set to 15 – 20% of total fork travel

Suggested Starting Points for Setting Sag
Rider Weight (lbs) Rider Weight (kgs) 34 FLOAT Pressure (psi/ bar)
120-130 54-59 58psi/ 4.0 bar
130-140 59-64 63psi/ 4.3 bar
140-150 64-68 68psi/ 4.7 bar

How do you set a sag on a mountain bike?

To calculate your sag percentage, divide the static travel by the total length of the shock and multiply by 100. Most manufacturers recommend that you set your sag somewhere between 25 to 35 percent.

How much air should I put in my shock?

Keep in mind that air shocks are like tires: you shouldn’t operate the air shocks with no air in them. For a manual system, you should have a minimum of 20 PSI in the shocks. When under load, add only enough air pressure to maintain level ride height.

How do you inflate a FoX rear shock?

Rear Shocks

  1. Remove the Schrader air valve cap from the shock.
  2. Thread the pump’s valve chuck onto the shock’s air valve until pressure registers on the pump gauge. This takes approximately 6 turns.
  3. Stroke the pump a few cycles. The pressure should increase slowly.

How is Fox shock size measured?

The most accurate method for shock measurement:

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

Are coil shocks better for heavy riders?

Yes, coil shocks are better for heavy riders. They make it easy for your biking on bumpy or cracked roads. The coil shocks generally hit large jumps along with rock gardens too.

How much PSI is a Fox Float?

Hightower LT

Fox Float DPX
Rider Weight Air Pressure Shock Sag
100lbs (45.5kg) 145 psi 16-19 mm
120lbs (54.4kg) 165 psi 16-19 mm
140lbs (63.5kg) 180 psi 16-19 mm

How much sag should I have?

Most manufacturers recommend that you set your sag somewhere between 25 to 35 percent. If your sag is higher or lower than that, you need to make some adjustments by attaching your shock pump and increasing or decreasing the air pressure in the shock and running the calculation again.

What should rear shock sag?

For the rear shock – 20% – 30% sag is recommended. For the most part, this can be used across the board for trail bikes and downhill bikes. Again, keep in mind you may want more or less sag depending on your bike, weight, and riding preferences.

How do you put air in a FoX rear shock?

Can you put air in FoX shocks?

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

How much air pressure should I put in my air shocks?

What do rear shock numbers mean?

Spring Length: Springs for coil shocks are rated using two numbers (you will see these stamped on the spring, e.g . 450 X 2.25). The first number is the weight (in pounds) needed to compress the spring by an inch (aka spring rate – see below) and the second is the travel length of the spring (in inches).

Which is better coil or air shock?

Coil shocks are generally more sensitive (easier for it to compress and rebound) than their respective air shocks because there are fewer seals in the system, therefore there is less force required to get the shock moving. Because of this, coil shocks tend to provide more traction and a unique feel.

Why are air forks better than coil?

Air forks provide better bottom-out resistance
Near the end of the range, it takes a huge amount of force to further compress the air inside. The total amount of force required to compress an air fork and bottom it out is greater than a coil fork. This is assuming that both are set for the same rider weight.

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.
