    Rockshox vivid r2c top out?

    I have a Bronson v2 with a Rockshox vivid r2c. In rough terrain, I occasionally felt a clunk. Initially I thought this was a bottom out. I increased compression damping and it got a bit better, but still happened. The clunk didn't seem to happen during big hits. Instead, it happened as I skipped through rough terrain, often on or just after successive hits. So I thought maybe the shock is packing down and I decreased rebound damping. But it still hasn't been eliminated.

    So now I'm wondering if this is actually top out, and should I add some low speed damping? How can you really tell the difference?

    Is this a new sound or just started? And air or coil? The coil ones often top out even when working properly, but otherwise it could be ifp pressure too low or piston set too deep and itís cavitating

    Coil. Not new. It's been happening since I got it. What does it feel/sound like when it tops out? Basically I feel a clack and maybe a slight kick in the pedal. It's not harsh, just annoying.

    The coil R2C is notorious for having a top out clunk. Try slowing down your Low speed rebound to see if that makes it go away. If it does that is likely your issue. Unfortunately the rebound Hass to be slow down too much.

    Low speed rebound, if I call recall correctly, on that shock is the beginning stroke rebound.
