    Fox 36 on '07 575?

    I cannot find the manual that came with my frame, and my computer does not open PDF files for some reason. So I have been unable to find info on the Yeti site about this question.
    I got a great deal on a Fox Float 160 with 6.3" of travel. Will this work on my 2007 575 medium frame? My plan is to beef it up a little with the fork and a heavier duty wheelset.

    Thanks in advance

    I am running a 150mm 32 float on my '07 575 and a 150mm xfusion Vengeance (36mm) on my '09 575. Both bikes handle extremely well. The 160 might slack out the geometry a bit (as the 150mm did on the '07) but it is not too bad. If that is your style of riding, go for it.

    I think the '07 was spec'd to have a 140mm fork and the '09 140-160.

    Thanks Mike
    My question is more about the fork being too much for the headtube. I realize the geometry will change.
    I recently built up a 29er and really like it, the Yeti has just been sitting. So I thought I'd beef it up and use it for more demanding trails here in CT or the occasional ski area.

    Both of mine are 1 1/8" and the headtube seems fine on both. King makes a great headset and I have not had any problems with either bike.

    Hi mate,
    I am riding a 07 575 with a rock shox sector u turn (yes was on a bit of a budget). I am thinking though of adding a 1.5` angle headset though to slacken it out but not really sure of any down sounds to it yet.
    from my reading of the manual its designed for 140 - 160 forks. have attached a screen shot of the diagrams and table from the manual.
    cheers

    AH-HA
    I kinda remembered that page from my long lost manual, but I wasnt 100% sure. I know with some frames, using too long a fork will void the warranty.
    I've had a Fox 32 140mm on it since new, which I love. But since I'm not riding the bike much I wanted to change it up a bit.
    But now I find myself with a Fox 140, superlight wheelset with American Classic hubs, and most of the parts I need for another complete bike(minus frame), what to do, what to do-lol.

    I ran my 08 with a float 36 spaced down to 140 it was great. Less flex and more precise steering through rock gardens. So that's a good option if you don't like it at the full 160.
