    New question here. DHX mounting hardware for a Demo 9???

    I have a 2004 Demo 9 with the 6way Swinger and want to install a DHX coil.

    I found a thread on ridemonkey where a rider manufactured his own hardware for a Demo 9 and another rider was able to install a DHX on a Demo8 (same style frame as the demo 9) by manufacturing the hardware using the exact same dimensions.

    If any of you have installed a DHX on a Demo9, did you get your mounting hardware from Fox, Specialized or did you manufacture it yourself?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    LBS machined some for me.

    Quick answer:
    the mounting hardware for the rear eye must be machined.


    Long Answer
    Last week I ordered my DHX 5 coil from my LBS Center Cycle in Renton on a Tues. The shock arrived on Friday @ 4pm. They were able to machine the hardware that evening and install the shock in time for my weekend trip to Sun Peaks, Kamloops BC. Great service from Center Cycle!

    Previously had the Mani-poo shock on their. When I hopped on my bike for the first run, I knew I had made the right decision. The rear shock was smooth and felt bottomless.
