    Fox shim kit for HD

    Hey - only have a handful of rides on my new HD, but am noticing I'm blowing through a lot of travel just pumping rollers and corners. This is with 20% sag and in the "trail" compression setting. Doesn't seem to be bottoming out on big hits/casing jumps though.

    Does anyone have experience with the shim set? What are the pros/cons?

    Thanks!

    Fox shim kit for HD

    Most of the new HDs come with a preinstalled med spacer..might be why it's so progressive

    Fox shim kit for HD

    I put the med spacer in on my HD and it helped a lot.

    Then sent it to PUSH and it came back feeling better then anything I've ever ridden, except some coil shocks I've been on.

    Large spacer vs no spacer felt miraculous to me. At least with the older rp23.
