    Superlight shock size?

    Hi friends

    I'm sort of a newbie so I apologize if this is something I can easily google (I tried).

    Anyways, I own a 2006 Superlight (size large). Original shock is getting tired and I'm shopping for a Fox RP23 replacement. My question is: What size shock do I need. (for example " 8.75 x 2.75")

    Thanks in advance!

    Can't believe nobody helping with this, did you try SC's tech support? Also I would think PUSH Industries(or other shock upgrade vendor) could lend some help too.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    Pretty standard size. Providing correct valving for the SL.

    What are you going to get as a replacement? I'm in the market for a new shock for my superlight and I'm not sure what is going to get me the best ride for the money. I was all ready to buy a refurbished one from push industries, but they sold out of that size...bummer

    so this is the correct size?

    I've been casually shopping for a new rear from my 06 SL

    here is one I've been watching;
    RockShox Monarch RL Air 200x51mm 7 875x2 0" Rear Shock Suspension 50mm | eBay

    here is another I found on pinkbike

    What is the ideal rear shock tune for a superlight? Or maybe I should ask, what is the stock tune for the newer SL?

    Shopping for a replacement for my 650B conversion. Original work but we're talking 2001, Thanks.
