    Converting 160 to 140 HD

    Im looking to convert my 160HD to a 140. Anyone out there looking to go from a 140 to a 160 and want to swap rear shocks? I have an Fox RP23 and I'm willing to throw in my anodized blue limbo chips. Let me know if anyone is interested.

    Probably to save some weight.
    I recently ran my HD 160 at 140 at the back and 170 at the front and found that the slacker headtube was very good for DH runs. The shock I used was an RP23 of my old 2007 Mojo C that had been pushed tuned with a big hit kit. I could jump much bigger with this setup and not bottom out. I put a spacer in the fox 160 which made a difference but I probably need to make a bigger one. I have been emailing the Aus. distributor of X-fusion free 2 weeks trying to get a vector air hlr with dw tune but they haven't responded.
