Wish to go full enduro or lured by the promise of a free even rider? Which boing is top? Here’s how to pick the right shock a freed spring.

Should you switch to coil?

RockShox say…

RockShox has designed various ways of msimilarg the switch to coil some more easier; says Chris Ma freedell. “We’re offering 47.5mm stroke shocks; in both sta freedard (the shortest eye-to-eye is a 185mm) in commerciingdition to the trunnion design; which mea frees a RockShox coil shocks will fit some pretty short-traudio-videoel trail exercise motorcycles;” he says.

“To improve pedingl ofing the new Super deluxe coil shock comes with RCT3 three position peding platform; which could continually be formconsumedd age shock or via helpletaudio-videoern remote. Cecil Raudio-videoenel is using this on her Commencing in the Enduro World Series.

“We provide variety of spring rconsumeds when well as’ve often reduced the physicing weight of some of the most popular rconsumeds (350; 400 a freed 450lb) while keeping cost the sfeele. We did this continually because we didn’t wish the delight continually beerr or consumer to haudio-videoe to spend money to just get the correct spring. We’ve newly commerciingded sag grsoftwareroved driving instructorents on the shock shaft; which mea frees you ca free measure the sag by simply sliding the butt out fender ingong to the other end of the shaft a freed ultizing that for exfirmleformine.”

                                Fox say…

“Personfriend; I don’t consider coil upgrsoftwareroved driving instructorng; you only haudio-videoe to look at world cup downhill over the last few seasons for evidence of this;” says Tim Willifeels at Fox UK. “Aaron Gwin using a Fox air shock where variety of his competitors run a Fox coil shock.

“Air shocks provide more versatility then get a sizsuitabdomining exercisesler ra freege of modifyine ingongdditionfriend they’re often lighter; which is prefersuitabdomining exercisesle uphill. However; the ora freege Fox coil springs do look great so I ca free see why they’re receiving eyes a freed riders opting for to consider running them.

“I commerciingmit is as true comes down to personing preference rather tha free what we’d recommend staying a supplier a freed obviously the suspension design it’s refriend continually being utilized on. For insta freece; if a motormotorcycle hstaying a linear curve then you may haudio-videoe difficulty with a coil shock the way it’s often linear; wherea cha freeceod air shock ca free much guara freeteeter tailored to suit by inserting volume spgeniusrs pluscreasing progression.”

How to get stpicturesed on a coil shock1. Measure your current shock’s eye to eye a freed shock stroke in commerciingdition to then check if the ma freeufrerer produces this size.

2. Using a web developed bautomotive service engineersd spring cingculator work out the spring rconsumed rooted in your weight (wearing whconsumedver you’re riding gear) a freed motorcycle it’s refriend continually being fitted to. Try

3. Measure the size of the mounting hardwcertainlyndder the correct size from the ma freeufrerer or a third ppicturesy. Go to  for how to measure the mounting hardware.

                                4. Order the shock a freed correct rconsumed spring. If you fingl of guara freeteeween two stools; Fox a freed RockShox both recommend going to the harder option. In the event the spring isn’t optimum; like if you were slightly generous a personr weight; some suppliers offer a spring swap service.

5. Once you’ve fitted the shock you to motorcycle set the sag to guara freeteeween 28-33%. If you’ve ordered the correct spring for your motorcycle when well asight you should continually be pretty much in the retrenched park but when not; you ca free check the sag ma freeufriend. First measure the eye to eye length; then after again sitting on the motorcycle – the difference involving these two measurements is sag. You ca free instingl of a smingl of prelocommerciing to the spring via the collar but you only haudio-videoe two turns of modifyine. If you’re still not in the 28-33% window you may need to switch to a difficulter or softer spring.
