    Help please

    Ive got a 2012 Mojo SL with a X-Fusion O2 RCX shock fitted from factory.
    I'm on the verge of buying a Kashima RP23 but was wondering if any you fine people knew if the fitting hardware that came with the X-Fusion will fit the RP23?

    Cheers in advance

    Both shocks use the same hardware.

    From the Department of Unsolicited Advice, going to the RP23 from the RCX is a step backwards. I have two RP23s (1 of them Pushed) and the RCX is superior. Less wallowy (better midstroke support), better compression damping, useful full range of rebound adjustment, gets full travel @ appropriate pressure... The Pushed RP23 might be better on small stutter bumps, but that's about it. XFusion comes out on top, IMO.

    I would save your money and stay with the Xfusion O2 you already have. Like Budgie said, the rp23 would be a downgrade.
