    Flux Rocker plates, anyone? Need to save my bike's life!

    I have a 2007 XL Flux. I need new left rocker, or pair, to get my bike rolling again. I love my Flux and am super bummed that it may be time to pack it off to the big singletrack in the sky if I can't track down a new set of rockers. I need only flux rockers for XL, 2007.

    I tried Turner and they no longer have them. I am not ready to give up on the bike, so I am not keen on trading it in on a new one just yet.

    Anyone have some rockers? Know anyone who might? It would be great to keep this bike rolling.

    Thank you,
    Mike

    I have some old O2 rockers, the longer ones that gave 3.5" of travel. I'm sure they would fit a Flux but don't know what travel/geo it would be. Anyway, its one option.

    The '07 Flux has 100mm of travel, I think the '02s would likely not fit. But, thank you for the response. I think a later year is likely to work. Maybe, if you have them lying around, I could compare a tracing of your rockers to my existing rockers.
    Thanks,

    I don't believe they will work, the main pivot move sides of the seat tube. Check Turners old catalogs to confirm.

    Oh yeah, one thing, try messaging Tscheezy. He had some good info on rockers. He used to come by the turner section a lot. Good luck. Wish I had some lying around I could just send you.

    Thank you. I will look for Tscheezy. I am stoked to have the help in tracking the rockers. I am starting to have hope of not retiring the bike for good!

    It is still good for the trade in program.

    True, I am just not ready to trade it in. Not to mention, a new flux, however awesome it would be to get one, would require all new parts to build it up. I have a stem, and seat that will work on it, but that is pretty much it.

    I also have a Flux 2005 rocker. Same as the 2007 I think.
    My 2005 Flux broke its saddle tube and it cannot be refixed safely.
    So, maybe it's time to let my old Flux live again, at least its rocker.
    I If someone is intersted, I also have a mint state HL rear triangle.
    The only problem is that I am in Europe, Belgium.
    The postal fees seems to be reasonnable: about 25$ for the rockers I think, via the official postal administration (+/- the same as USPS).

    I n tracking down replacement rockers, i realized that I don't know the torque settings for the pivots and I thought you all might know.

    Also, does anyone know if you can run an aftermarket o-ring in the pivots? I dont have spare o-rings and don't wish to buy a whole kit, and my bike does not need it.
