So I picked up a used RP23 for my BLUR XC aluminum, and I know it came from another bike (not sure which). But does FOX tune the compression settings for RP23s depending on which frame the RP23 will ultimately go on? My question is that I'm having trouble dialing in the rear and I'm thinking the factory setting for compression (low or high) is not correct for my BLUR XC.

Would getting it pushed be my only option or am I able to just rebuild it with the correct compression settings (where do i find this for my 08 blur xc?)?

Thanks in advance.

If the stickers have not been removed, you should have a little 'bar graph' logo on the shock that indicates the factory damping level. There are three levels if I remember correctly as indicated by the three 'bars' on the graph. I have no idea what the stock config was, but the blur (and many other SC VPP bikes) have a fairly 'unique' wheel rate that can feel a little odd with stock damping curves.

You cannot change this shock by yourself. You cannot buy the parts, nor can you get the info needed to perform the work (IFP depth, pressures, shim/piston/valving configurations, etc).

Fox can re-valve the shock for you for some $$ (not sure it there is a specific Blur tune or if they will build something that is more specific than 'low', 'medium', or 'firm').

PUSH will do pretty much what ever you want as each job is custom, based on your frame, weight, riding style, preferences, etc. The more (honest and correct) info you can provide them, the better your result will be.
