    Upgrade alloy rocker on Faze 2/3 to CF Rocker?

    Does anybody know the MSRP/part number on the carbon fibre suspension rocker used on the 2010 Faze 1 and Faze SL, and how much weight it saves compared to the alloy rocker used on the Faze 2/3?

    Thanks.

    OK, well, anybody have a contact number or email at Norco where I could ask?

    No Norco insiders around here?

    As far as I'm aware, Norco does not have a contact #, etc. for public enquiries.
    Your best bet is to find a Norco dealer and pose the question through them.

    Well, my LBS made a call for me, and while Norco does normally sell this part off the shelf, a deal was struck for $100 CAN and I now have a carbon fibre rocker.

    Weight of the aluminium rocker: 268 grams.

    Weight of the carbon rocker: 219 grams.

    It fit perfectly, except that the space between the shock mount ears is 30mm on the carbon rocker and 33mm on the aluminium one. So I had to face off 1.5mm from each shock spacer to get them to fit - not a big deal, as I have a lathe. If somebody else wants to try this, order the Faze 1 spacers as well.

    Not a huge weight savings, but the bling factor is nice.
