Anyone out there know how to tell the difference between the 04 Heckler and the 05 or whatever theyre calling it?
Im running the 5th Coil.
On the coil itself it says "Heckler x 2.25"
Is this the new travel setting or the old one?

Any other differences between the 04 and 05?

I have been trading emails with SC, according to the sales reps, 05's aren't out yet. Here's a quote from them:

............Hi Dwayne, Frame wise, the Heckler design has is not changing, but you can now get 5.6" of travel with certain 2005 Heckler rear shock options. You can now run the 7.875" x 2.25" size rear shock and get approx 5.6" of rear wheel travel on the 2002-on Heckler and we have recently started to ship some 2004 Heckler/5th Coil-overs in this size, and the new Fox DHX-5's are now shipping in this size. All Air rear shocks are still the 7.875" x 2.0" size (5.0" of rear wheel travel). That's really the main difference.

Thanks for your interest in Santa Cruz, and let me know if you have any
other questions.

Per Scott at SC they started shipping 04's with the 2.25" stroke shock out in April. So you could very well have an 04. I'm not aware of what changes if any for 05.
This thread got me thinking about my Heckler since it was shipped the last week of May. I checked the shock and it say 300 x 2. So apparently they were still shipping some Hecklers with 2 inch stroke shocks in May.

- Try this on for size...... It's not about Hecklers but, I got 2 Superlights with Made in the USA stickers on them.... How old are those??? - I'd say what you get depends on Size & Color and that goes across the line for all of their offerings.....
