    Super Deluxe on Patrol - max volume spacers?

    Anyone know the max number of volume spacers that can be run in the Super Deluxe that comes stock on the 2017 Patrol?

    A friend of mine who services shocks said he thinks it's three, but that it wasn't written in any specs from RS. I know you can run at least 3, which might be the right number for my weight and (lack of) style.

    Stoked to be back on a Transition!

    I ran 4 in the last ride I had. They all lined up and snapped in place.

    I think it's 3. You may start cutting off travel using more.

    I cracked my open yesterday and added one, for three total. Just eyeballing it, 4 looks like it may limit travel, but I could be wrong.

    They went to a new design this year. I bought them from Jensen I think. Come in packs of 3 for like $15+

    I poked around a little after my post and couldn't find that info. Where did you?


    Just based on where that bottom out washer and o-ring sit on mine, if that's bottom out, I'd be a little sketched about 4 unless is specifically stated somewhere.

    You may not bottom out on the spacer but you might get pneumatic lock at a certain point.

    I couldn't find any online. Had to drive down to a shop that has a fork/shop servicing department, they had a couple. Any shop should be able to order them (how old school...)
