Happy Holidays.

I've been using my Flux with RP3 since April this year - 8 months. It's not been serviced in that time, and has been perfect.

Over the last couple of rides I've noticed that the shock is now running at closer to 50% sag than the 30% sag I was expecting with 180psi. So I pumped it up to 190psi (didn't empty the shock first) and the sag is still around 50%.

Any clues on what might be going on?

Your shock got stuck down. Time to send it to www.pushindustries.com and get it custom set for yor weight and riding style.

The stuck down problem is common with the RP3's. I had to replace mine twice. Do not waste your time and just get it pushed. Fox fixes it for free, but chances are, it will hapen again......

If it is stuck down, wait for CactusCorn to come along (any minute now) and he has all the details on how to un-stick it yourself safely.
ta da! its SUPERCORN! greetings fellow crime stoppers. what seems to be the problem here? oh my! its a stuck down rp3! nibblet... stop playin with yer corn rows and go get the huskmobile with the tool box.

i stole this directly from a previous post: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?postid=1399642#poststop

push gave me a great hint for opening these things up without spewin bits all over the shop or killin a curious pet when the can blows off the shaft. use a belt wrench and wrap a rag around the damper to keep it from blowin in 2. it works awsome, its cheap and its pet friently. and yes, its PITA approved!

good luck. to the corn field nibblet!

CC, can we add Camel to your handle to make you the CCC - cactus camel corn?
The real question is...filter or no?

He shouldn't have to spend all that money on a newer shock to make it work.

Don't forget that if you call Fox, they will say this is the first they've heard about this problem. As consumers, a message can be sent to them by not supporting their products...

This is coming from a person that experienced stuck-down as well.
