    2004 Weyless SP Rear Shcok Replacemnt

    I am looking for the mounting hardware that I need to replace my 2004 Weyless SP rear shock. I just purchased a 2009 Manitou S-Type shock with SPV. It appears that the monnting hardware I had for the stock shock---Manitou QRL--is too big. Any guidance you may have would be appreciated. Any good sources of info or the mounting parts? Are there previous threads that cover this topic as I recall that Performance sold a bunch of these frames at the end without a rear shock...I appreciate everyone's input.

    Maybe ask performance? Is that the bike that looks like a Superlight?
    I guess that's the downside of buying an "off brand."

    Here's a picture of the mounting hardware that I currently have for the old Manitou QRL shock...However, it doesn't appear to work for my new S-Type shock...the old hardware seems too big to press into the new shock.

    I think you need to get measurements, and then I would talk to these guys about what you need:

    I took the following measurements with a caliper:
    8mm x 47.91mm and 6mm x 22.09mm

    I have found mounting hardware: 8mm x 48mm and 6mm x 22mm or 22.2mm

    Wondering if there may have been some wear and tear that brought down the measurement a little.

    So both reducers are 8mm, what's the issue? They're supposed to be very firm fitting, or else the DU bush/reducers are worn.

    I measured the lengths...not sure about the 6mm or 8mm...should they both be 8mm?
