    Anyone Running a DHX 5.0 on a Gemini?

    I'm planning on getting a 05 Gemini 900 and upgrading the rear shock to a fox DHX 5.0. Anyone done this before? Does it work well?

    I have a DHX 5.0 on a Gemini 900

    I love it...best shock I ever rode (and I have tried them all...Fox, Avalanche, 5th Element...).

    However..One problem!

    The bottom out adjuster knob scratches the frame on bigger hits.

    I took the knob off and the problem is solved.

    Eye to eye and stroke are correct (7.878 x 2.25), but the medium frame does not have lots of clearance, and the reservoir on the DHX is rather large.

    If you take drops, remove the reservoir...or try to find a 4.0 (does not have the bottom out knob).

    Hope my pics work.....

    sweet

    I dont think i'll have that space issue, seeing that i'm 6'3'' and i'm getting an XL. I'm figuring that the shock should fit without a hitch. Thanks for the post!

    I have a scalpel size S, I think it would also be a size small for the gemine. Should this be a problem?
