    New question here. Anyone swapped to a HV RP23 air sleeve and want to sell their old LV to me?

    I am looking for a low volume sleeve that fits a 7.875" RP3 or RP23 or DHX Air (I don't think the stroke matters, but mine is 2.25 just FYI). I don't know if there are even many of these out there since it seems like most of the shocks shipping these days are already HV styles.

    I have a 7.5 LV sleeve from my RP3 - don't know if this would work or not.

    Thanks, but it won't. I have a 7.5 LV sleeve also. The air can on the 7.875's are longer.

    Would the AVA sleeve get you down to the volume you are looking for?

    pretty sure i have one from my Float...would that work or is the RP23 different? I put the HV on my El Rey right when i got it but i know the LV is somewhere and you can certainly have it if you still need it (7.875 x 2.25 shock as you know)

    Why not just get one directly from Fox? I think I paid $35 for mine direct.

    Will the 7.875 x 2.25 LV can fit the 8.5 X 2.5 DHX Air?
    If so I'm also looking for one.

    To increase the compression ratio, just add a few CCs of Float Fluid to the main chamber.

    Adding oil will only migrate to the negative chamber which will cause problems.
