    Banshee Bikes with Fox Float X2

    Hi, Anyone riding with X2 shock? Im riding a V2 Spitfire with X2 shock and it sucks that I have to stop riding and how the hell long more I have to wait for FOX to come out with a solution? Not everyone has a 2nd shock for backup...

    Just remember that it doesn't apply to all X2 shocks, only the ones without the 250 psi max label.

    The way I read the recall it could be as simple as adding a sticker to solve it and that the shock that failed was just pumped up to too high a pressure... but I don't know all the facts and could well be wrong.

    Mine is affected from the recall. It's a 2016 X2.
    I'm just curious, I read all of the raptured X2 are coursed by extra spacers Been added and 200psi pressure above.
    I'm running factory 2 spacers and 160psi....not having any problem.

    Fox expect us riders just stop riding and without giving more info?

    Spitfire V2 with Fox Float X2 Shock Setup

    Hi, Anyone has this setup on your Spitfire? Was wondering what was your setup? I'm having difficulties getting it right. My bike back end is like throwing everywhere and felt unbalanced and firm, especially riding in a rock garden trails. But, I've setup according to Fox recommendation guideline.

    https://www.ridefox.com/help.php?m=bike&id=695

    My setup as following:-
    Rider's weight : 66kg
    Sag :30%
    Air pressure: 150psi
    LSR:18
    HSR:16
    LSC:22
    HSC:20

    Front tire pressure : 18psi
    Rear tire pressure :20psi

    What's your setup like? Maybe can give me some pointers, where did I do wrong?
    Thanks
