    BigHit 04 rear shock question.

    I'm lead to believe its ok to flip the piggyback shock upwards to give you more travel. Is this ok?

    Which way around the shock goes has no bearing on the amount of travel. Doesn't the '04 have three different mount holes at the front (frame) and four travel/head-angle at the rear; 8.1in. or 6.8in, each with two different head angles, are your choices.

    If it's the Vanilla RC shock you have, the piggy-back needs to be on the underside of the shock or else it can catch the rear tyre in the settings D and B (and maybe the others, too).

    Flipping the shock has no bearing on how much travel you have. Don't flip it. It is where it is for a reason. You can change the geo of the bike by mounting it in the different positions given on the link.

    Hi, you probably want to check out the manual for your Bighit. I'm running the same bike and according to the manual you have to flip the piggy back depending on what settings you choose. Check out page 8 of this manual (direct from Spec's site)
