just got out for my first big ride today on my MX tuned DHX and I kinda feel as if the shock need some break-in time. Is this normal? I was expecting it to be a little plusher with the controls opened up.

It may need some adjustment? Mine was so much better than the old shock it could still be not setup properly, and I'm digging it.

Yeah, six-pack I think what you're saying may be true. When I got my RP23 back, I could really feel the improvement in the damper but I feel like it just keeps getting better and better now

Hey Mr. Pack,

I'm right there with you on this one. Just yesterday I got my first ride on a Pushed Rockshox Monarch Plus RC3 that I combined with a 2011 Fox 36 Talas 160 RLC FIT fork as replacements for the Specialized suspension on my 2007 Euduro SL. I've had the Fox fork on the bike for 4 rides already so I was somewhat familiar with the advantages brought about by that change. Adding the shock was a major improvement to both the uphill and DH ride characteristics of the bike. That said I too was expecting a little plusher ride with all the controls opened up.

My thanks to everyone for suggesting that things will only get better from here as they were pretty damn nice yesterday!

Take care,

Michael:thumbsup:
