    Does anyone know the leverage ratio for a Fox RP3 on a Litespeed niota AL?

    RP3 is a 200mm eye-to-eye shock with 50mm of travel. The bike can be set up with either 100mm or 125mm, therefore at best the leverage ratio is 2:1. Hope this helps.

    Thanks Doc . I had only wished you replied earlier. And just so you know the guys at Fox told me the same thing. The folks at Litespeed gave me BUM information and told me it was 4:1 which is way too high for what I was going to use it for. It probably cost me the sale of the shock.
