    7.875 x 2 coil shock on 2013 5 spot

    I have a 7.875 x 2 Fox DHX coil from a previous bike and was curious if it would work on my 2013 5 spot. What would it change? Is it worth trying?

    Thanks!!!

    Dont think it will fit without hitting the underside of rockers, but it's just turning the bolts 4x and you can tell us how is changes things.

    Thanks DT. After thinking about it, why even even consider changing anything? Thanks for making such amazing bikes!!! I have dreamed of being a Turner owner since I started riding, and I am so glad it's now a reality

    What DT didn't say is it will phuck up your geometry, shock stroke, shock tune, and every other reason why you bought the bike you did with the stock shock. Take this from someone who has plenty of experience sticking other than OEM spec'ed shocks in his bike.

    Yes the reservoir and rockers will contact, the bottom bracket will rise a couple inches and the head angle will steepen significantly. Pretty radical changes.
