    What year is my vivid R2C?

    I have a vivid R2C which really needs a service.. I have al the tools needed, I just need to get the seal kit but there appears to be two, an 09-10 kit and a 2011 kit,
    Will either kit fit my shock? Or do I need to find out what year it is? And if so how can I find out?

    Thanks in advance for any help!!

    I have 1 of each and they are different. In 2009/2010, the Vivid was called a 4.1 or 5.1. In 2011/2012 they changed some internals and called it a Vivid R2C (I think there was an OEM Vivid R). The rebound knob was moved to make access easier to access, the 5.1 was just at the end of the sping shaft and needed 2 fingers to turn it, where as my R2C is a red know hanging down the same side as the reervoir. If your shock has R2C on the label, it would be the new one.
