I recently cracked one of my 5.5 rockers that are on my 06 RFX. Turner doesn't have any of the 5.5 rockers any more so they offered me some slightly used 6.4s.

I know there gonna raise my bottom bracket but how much?

Anyone running this setup on an 06 RFX?

I'd recommend putting some 5.1 or 5.3 rockers on there to get you by (I'm sure plenty of homers have those laying around) and scouting for some 5.5s.

Just please get a classified want ad (if you start begging for rockers) so I don't have to delete your thread. :).

Are you refering to rockers from a 08' RFX? Why do think they would raise your BB? Remember 08' Rfx's used a 2.25" stroke shock.

DHRracer-

I would be putting 08 rockers on an 06 RFX which is a different eye to eye stroke.
I think that's DHRracer's point. The 08 RFX rockers yield 6.4in of travel with a 2.25in shock, but if you use a 2in shock they would only yield roughly 5.7in of travel (assuming linear leverage curve which isn't exactly right but close enough for the purposes of this discussion).

This seems to imply that the 6.4in rockers shouldn't be substantially different from the 5.5in rockers of the 2008 5 Spot. If there are no mechanical issues mounting the 08 RFX rockers on an 06 RFX, I don't see why it would raise the bottom bracket substantially.

If Turner is offering them to you, I would go for it.
