    2010 DW Sultan....DGC shock shim needed?

    I am building up a DW Sultan, and was wondering if anyone has tried the DGC shim mod on the shock?
    I'm 200lbs and hit jumps and drops, nothing huge, but was wondering if the extra bottoming out resistance is going to be needed with this bike.
    Thanks.

    No, I weight 210, tried it. 5-Spot, however, likes this mod AND/Or a PUSH and needling.

    Iíd say donít worry about it until you try the bike Ďau naturelí. I actually called Greg @ Turner and asked him if they were revalving the Spot shock to match the DGC mod - from the number of responses to the DGC mod I assumed EVERYONE would want it. Turns out Turner isnít changing the stock shock tune. Try it and report backÖ

    For chunk riding on the DW Sultan, I run a half-sized DGC shim. Lets me keep things on the plush side, without bottoming too often, or wallowing around in the mid-stroke.

    For XC riding, I like the shock un-shimmed, with about 7 psi more pressure.

    I weigh 200 RTR.

    Hmm

    My Niner RIP 9 doesn't need any shim but then it was engineered well

    PS In Utah and enjoying the crap out of a 2003 Turner 5 Spot that is Pushed on both ends. Push can fix the problem. My bike is pure magic with the Push treatment. Check it out.

    Enjoy the Dr. Phil attempt. I was just having fun and yanking the homer chain. I'm still humored that folks takes these bikes so serious.
