    Spitfire v2 and fox float ctd spacer kit

    I'm coming off a rune v2 with a dbair, and now ride a spitfire with a fox float ctd and pike up front. I had difficulty bottoming out the rune, and I'd guess I was left with a good 20-30 mm of travel to spare on most of my rides, and it still felt super plush. I'm having quite the opposite issue on my spitfire. I easily get full travel on medium size hits, and I can even bottom it out bunny hopping in the parking lot. I weight approx 170lb, and I've increased the psi to around 180, but still not much change. I guess since we're talking about a fox product I shouldn't be surprised at the lack of mid-stroke support. I'm wondering if anyone else has tried the fox spacer kit and what the result was.

    i had mine pushed and it made a big difference in mid-stroke support. I would think a spacer kit would help.....or just get a float x...

    I had the same problem and simply added a few cc's of float fluid at a time until I had the spring rate where I wanted it. Really should get the spacer kit, but hey it worked.

    Send it to Avalanche for the AVA experience. Best upgrade I made to my Lyrik, and everything is better than Float. It doesn't do it for harder riding!!

    I added the smallest spacer and it fixed my bottom out issue. I weigh 200 lb and run it at 160 psi I think. I might still go the avalanche way in the near future.

    No, I added the smallest. Might try a larger one soon and see what it does with what I expect will be lower pressure. Once winter is done.

    I got mine pushed and still run the largest spacer. I find that the largest spacer livens up the rear end a bit. So far getting it pushed was worth it.
