    I purchased this Recoil about a Month and a half ago (my first bike), after 3 weeks I decided to change a few parts (will change everything within 1 month from now). So here's a list of my upgrades;

    FORK: RockShox Recon TK Silver Solo Air
    SHOCK: RockShox Monarch RT3
    BRAKES: Quad QHD 5 (Hydraulic Brakes)
    WHEELS: WTB FX 28
    TIRES: Kenda Small Block Eight
    SEATPOST: Ritchey WCS Aluminum (on its way)

    After getting all the parts I didn't want to install them on that ugly gold color, So I decided to strip it and paint it. Here are the results.

    So Here's the before


    Here's the after.

    i just got a used 09 recoil on craigslist for 300. it doesnt even look like it was ever ridden. i would like to upgrade the fork and rear shock. im looking at a fox float rp2 on ebay. will i need anything else to go along with this shock to make it work?

    You will need to make sure the shock is the corrrect size, and you will also need the mounting hardware.

    So you have an idea mine is a '11 uses 190mm x 50mm and the mounting hardware is 8mm x 21mm.

    im looking at ebay at rear shocks. ive noticed that in addition to the differing eye to eye and stroke lengths, the fox float rp2 also has differing top and bottom end widths. what is the required width for the recoil?

    Sorry about that, I have an RP23 XV (Extra Volume canister ) on mine and it fits fine it has it is the larger diameter. Not sure of the actual dimensions but I believe this is the biggest canister Fox makes.

    Just bought one!

    Great Thread!
    I just got mine used via a local Craigslist type site. $325 and it looks brand new!

    Your Recoil Pictures, Lets see them all!!!-imgp0022.jpgYour Recoil Pictures, Lets see them all!!!-imgp0024.jpg

    Its still mostly stock. The only thing I changed is the cockpit. I put in spds, barends, a speedo and gripshifts (because I've been using twists for forever and I'm too old to change!).

    I noticed that no one is swapping wheels. Maybe its me, but don't the stock wheels seem awful heavy? I ask as this is my first full suspension and my first set of disc brakes.

    Oh, I also cleaned up my speedo install with heat shrink. See
    Clean and classy Bike speedometer installation
    for how I did it.
