    XLoc Full Sprint?

    Is the only option to lockout both front and rear susp?

    Or can you just lockout the rear for example?

    Thanks

    Full sprint locks out both at the same time, no option to lock out just the rear.

    This is correct, however you can adjust the Gold Gate adjustment valve to have zero flood gate. What this means is it will lock your front fork out but it will still have a 1-2 inches of travel based on your pressure and weight. The travel won't be as plush as when the fork it unlocked but it will soak up a bit of the bumps if you lock it out on a rocky climb as an example.

    Other option I have been contemplating is using a RCT3 damper in the fork, single xloc for the rear, and using the Low Speed Compression setting on the front damper to provide platform when standing out of the saddle. Not sure I want to spend the ~$130 bucks for the new damper to try it out though.

    Does anyone know if the Full Sprint fork and rear shock are not connected in the remote button thing? In otherwords, if I try to shorten the rear shock cable myself, is there any way I would screw up the fork side?

    You just need to Rebleed the lockout per srams instructions and you're good to go. Won't screw up the fork as long as you bleed it correctly which is very easy to do.

    If I carefully cut the rear hose at the shock, not at the remote, will I have to bleed? I read somewhere on srams site for their reverb post that after 3 openings/cuttings, then you might bleed? I'm really hoping I don't have to buy the kit and go through a bleed just to shorten a cable. But I'm new to this hydraulic thing. V-brakes and manual lockouts were more my style!

    Yep you'll need to bleed. It is good to have that kit anyway. If the line gets a bubble in it the shock and or fork will remain locked out. And you don't want to be dealing with that. You can always take the chance but I wouldn't.

    Got it. I'm assuming I need the little bottle of fluid too. Some kits have it, some don't.

    I've never blead anything. My new bike has a number of firsts for me after 25 years: discs, carbon frame, full suspension, lockouts, tubeless tires, 29er, 1X11, I could go on. But I guess I need to learn to do it now.

    Thanks.

    Does anyone know the bleed sequence for the Full Sprint?

    It appears that a single fluid reservoir drives both the Lefty and the Monarch. Every bleed instruction I've seen treats this like a two-way system, ignoring either the shock or the fork. But there's only one bleed screw on the remote; how can you bleed the fork without the fluid interacting with the shock?

    XLoc Full Sprint?

    See instructions here.

    The process is to do them separately and it works fine. The procedure is to push new oil up from the shock or fork separately and it doesn't push any bubbles back down the other hose if that's what you're asking.

    You're right, that worked fine. I did the remote, then the shock, then switched the shock syringe to the fork. Lockout works great, thanks.
