    Ah.....Dave

    My sled was making some unusual noises the last two rides, do you think this could be the problem?

    May be Tcheesy can fix this with some JB Weld and surgical tubing.

    I also found this after the ride. What do you think is going on? There is no ding in my seat tube where it could be hitting. I am at a loss????

    youch!
    As the link bent it's like the i to i shortening so the cs yoke can hit the seat tube without necessarily making a mark on the seat tube. Scott discovered that with his offset drilled shock spacers, he dented his yoke at hard bottomout but it did not leave a mark.

    Stiffer spring maybe?

    I was hoping it was a product of the broken rocker and not my fat a$$. I dropped about 10 lbs in the last 2 months so the spring is probably not the problem, the DHX has been feeling very weak lately and will go to Push on monday.

    What are thos horizontal nicks near the pivot edges on the yoke?
    That dent is weird. are the shock mount points of the rockers bent?
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    Are the rockers bent? Did you not see the first pic of my broken rocker?
    The nicks look more like machining in person so no worries there.

    Ahh, I thought that was a scrape I couldn't tell for sure it was cracked, I didn't want to assume.

    Did you Dremel the notch in the rocker to fit the valve stem? If so, it looks a lot bigger than those that came from Turner with the notch already in place. But, I guess that could be because it is bent to sh!t.

    Either way, Im sure you will be taken care of.
