    The Monarch RL that came on my Sight is an HV Low Compression, Medium Rebound.

    I can't say how it rides as I am still putting the bike together.

    Thanks guys. Looking at possibly picking up a Sight 650b frame and was thinking one of my shocks could fit.

    Thanks for the reply! what does ML stand for? it seems like that the 2014 monarch in the right size is only available in mid/mid. i guess high volume would the right choice? thanks for the help!!

    Norco 650B Sight.....what Rear Shock Tune?

    The first letter "M" is for the rebound tune and the "L" is for the compression tune.

    Got a reply from Sram........ All Monarch rear shocks are now sold in the MM tune ONLY. All other tunes are sold custom to OE manufacturers to fit their specific frames. Replacement damper units are sold separately as spare parts for specific tunes, but not the full shock.

    Is it correct to assume that these tunes are good for the 2014 Norco Sights?

    I want to upgrade the shock for my 7.1 Alloy Sight. I want to upgrade it real good like. Make it real nice like. Yes, siree. Real nice.

    To git real good like... you should have your current shock custom tuned to you and your riding style. Off the shelf shocks are tuned for a broad range and are a crap-shoot for a fit to any rider's specific needs (read as best performance).
