    new Prophet owner's manuals

    maybe a noob question, but... regarding the manuals & supplements i received when i purchased my '06 prophet 1K, the rear shock is a manitou swinger 3-way air... but i have a fox racing shox manual in my packet. is this a mistake?
    i was looking for some info on fine-tuning the rear suspension setup and realized i don't have any info or manual for the manitou... the fox manual covers '06 DHX, float, and vanilla shocks apparently.

    Same thing with me. I received a Manitou Swinger manual instead of a Fox.
    I was told by my LBS to go online...

    Well, I was just gonna suggest you to go to www.answerproducts.com to download a Manitou owners manual, but the website seems to be gone.

    If the website really is down for good, I happened to have downloaded both the 05 and 06 manuals for the Swinger 3-way and could email the 06 one to you. PM me with your email address if you want it.

    The full manual is a 5 Meg PDF - 80 pages. Just the first 8 pages are English, the rest is other languages. It was very helpful in figuring this thing out. There's a separate 1 page quick ref guide too - not nearly as good though.

    I didn't get any manual for the Manitou rear shock with my 05 Prophet.
    Only things I got were the Prophet Owners Manual Supplement, the 2005 Lefty MAX 140 Owners Manual Supplement, and a small Prophet Set-up Guide. The last one was the only thing that referenced the rear shock at all - it had a chart with recommended settings for the various rear shocks.

    I just checked, and the website for Swinger (and other) shock manuals is back on line.
    answerproducts.com now redirects you to HBSuspension.com

    Direct link to the tech support section with user/service manual downloads:

    http://www.hbsuspension.com/helpdesk.asp

    (naturally I didn't figure that out until after I sent the docs to a few of you who took me up on my offer to email them!)
