do you have any use for a cool looking paperweight?Tidybeard said:An actual relevant thread from me - I know, I can't believe it either.
I bought a DHX air in May 07 for the RFX as it was on closeout (the thread of joy I posted at the time is here http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=298239 - I was very polite then ).
I'd be surprised if the shock has 100 miles on it (really) but yesterday I dug the bike out to give it a tune up as I'm expecting to ride it more this year after some time spent overseas.
Anyway, a quick once-over and the RFX was in fine fettle. Checked the shock pressure and put a bit more in as I have eaten a few pies since I last rode. Got on the bike and the shock immediately blew through it's travel and the i2i is now 7in as opposed to the DHXc which came with the frame at 7.5in.
So....either it was always 7in and I got the wrong DHXa but just never checked when I put it on originally (which is quite possible as I'm somewhat dumb but I got the shock from people who would know the correct i2i for an 06 RFX...) or it has stuck part way through its travel. Either way it isn't holding pressure which I think is pretty poor for a shock that's hardly been used (albeit in storage for quite a while).
I don't expect the shock to be warrantied as it is over 2.5 years old and was on blowout when I got it, but what are my likely options? Anything I can do myself to un-stick it? I'm in the UK if that makes any difference.
Thank you kindly for your assistance in this matter - I know I should know more about this stuff.
