    Are you saying you broke the rebound function on the shock? If so, then don't ride on it, get it fixed.
    If that's not what you meant, then I don't have a clue what you're talking about
    I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!

    You want a pogo stick? Just the coil only, no damping?

    LOL, not a good move mate, it was built to be used with the damping system, why do you want to break it?
    Dont ever let the truth get in the way of a funny story....

    Sounds like he is not interested in having any control over his bike to me.... But that's fun too!! Especially if you like to jump into the air!!

    Why don't you just trade with someone for an entry level rear shock?

    I'm sure someone with an entry level shock would love to trade you.

    That way you have a "coil only" shock without destroying a perfectly good rear shock.

    Run the rebound wide open & 0 psi in the Boost Valve = No dampning.

    I thought you were running a different kind of rear shock altogether?
