Just received my fork today! I went to my LBS and it is getting installed as we speak.
I was curious about the weight difference between the stock Suntour XCR 29" and the Rockshox Recon Silver TK 29".
Rockshox lists the Recon at 2186g.
My local bike shop weighted the Recon before any cutting. He stated about 4 1/4 lbs. I could see the scale (barely) and I believe it said 4 lbs and 7 ounces. So if it was 4lbs 7 ounces, it would be about 2013g.
If it were 4 1/4 lbs, it would be about 1928g.
When cut it may be even a tad bit lighter. Either way, it is lighter than the stated weight unless the scale was a bit off.
They will weigh the stock shock once they take it off so I am hoping there is a weight decrease from with the new shock
