    Coil on 04 Slayer

    Goodaye Blokes

    After some advice please (btw, did a search on this forum, found a couple of usefull bits of info, but after more)

    As i am becomming more proficient at taking Becky (04 Slayer 50) to her limmits i am wondering whether a coil in the rear would serve me better.

    I don't want to pressure the buggery out of the Float RL to stop her bottoming (i still want small bump compliance). As i am hitting up bigger stuff she does occaisonally bottom out (twice last night) - i expect this issue will get worse as the jumps/drops get bigger.

    I consider myself to be a reasonably smooth rider, who makes use of the legs to minimise impact.

    Any advice on how to overcome this issue?

    Will a coil in the rear help the issue - remembering i still want small bump compliance (and a pedal platform if possible). If YES - what would be the reccomendation for a coil rear shock? I am not into constant mid ride 'tweaking' of dials and knobs (never even used the lock out on the Float RL or Vanilla 125) - set and forget is for me! Simple is good.

    It is possible to put a coil on, but I would be concerned about your rear triangle if you get to crazy with the drops you could snap that rear end. It's okay to bottom out your shock once in a while I've been told if you bottom out once or twicw a ride you have the right pressure.
