    07 Specialized Demo 7 travel adjust?

    I bought a used 07 Demo 7 and am not sure if the travel adjust spacer is internal or if the previous owner alreadt removed it ( If it was just a spacer that limited shaft travel by fitting Under the bottom out bumper.)

    please explain

    also what is the stock spring that comes on the demo 7 as it seems too soft, but I am not sure what it is so do not know what spring rate to try next?

    please help

    also please email me the answers as i can not seem to change my old email adress on MTBR

    email is [email protected]

    first, you dont have to make two threads with the same question.

    for your spring weight, quick forum search brought up this thread: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.ph...ht=demo+spring
    sounds like ur the same weight so should apply the same

    as for your travel adjust, id assume u can find the answer with another quick search if no one responds

    "NOTE: Stock setting for the shock stroke is 2.375”, resulting in 7.3” of travel. Travel can be increased to 7.7” by removing the small travel limiting chip located under the bottom-out bumper on the shock shaft."

    Unwind your spring so you can get behind the bumper.

    I know for a fact that this has been covered about a hundred times before as I have commented on these all before... You could have searched and found it easily.

    Remove the shock, unthread the coil from the body, the shock can be partially disassembled from there, take off the travel limiter chip that is attached to the shock shaft right behind the bottom out bumper, put the shock back together, re-install on the bike.

    You can remove the chip without removing the shock from the frame, it's U-shaped.
