    "Custom" tune on 2016 Altitude rear shock

    Got a stock "custom" tuned Fox Float DPS Evol for my bike. It came with a shiny sticker custom tune ID CY3Y. Does anyone know what goes into that particular tune? I'm mostly looking for weight range and mid stroke wizardry since all shocks nowadays seems optimized for small bump sensitivity and end stroke progressivenessTM

    That's what you get from Fox I believe. I'd like to go deeper than that.

    I don't think there's much else to it. Compression is medium and rebound is medium with a .4 spacer.

    I replaced the shock on my 2014 instinct and asked RM about this. They told me the custom tune was "A MD rebound tune and MD compression tune will be the correct ones to match our spec."

    After talking to a few people and consulting our local RM rep i just got a normal Fox Float shock and opted not for a special tune. Low and behold the stock shock is CM, RM which I believe is a medium rebound and medium compression. So, perhaps its not all that custom after all.

    you could get a hold of Push Industries MTB Suspension and MTB Suspension Tuning and see what they say or what they recommend for that shock given your particular parameters
