    Anyone running a coil shock on an Enduro?

    Just wondering what spring weight you're running. i've got a 650 on mine, and I'm 11 stone- something feels not quite right (although it is getting the full 6" travel- it's got a longer stroke than the old air). It reaches full travel easy, but something feels wrong, and I think I might be running too stiff a spring.

    Any ideas?

    Too Stiff

    What weight does a stone translate into?
    I weigh 93 kilos (204 lbs) and use a 650 lb spring and have no problems.
    Are you contacting the seat post at full compression?
    It is possible that the shock collar could be binding on the link during compression.
    Did you try removing the spring, remounting the shock and checking for binding?
    Good luck.
    If you weigh less than me, try a lighter spring.
    One last thing, is it also possible that you are getting coil bind? Where the coils contact before the shock has reached full travel?

    In new money I'm 70 kilos. Shock bind- hadn't thought of that. The coi's definitely not binding on the shock, but I'll have a look to see if it's hitting the linkage.

    I have the same rig you do 2002 Enduro Expert FSR.... I want to upgrade the rear shock as the 2-4ft drops is killing the shock and I want to get a freeride shock.... do you know what shocks can fit on the bike???

    It is quite common here on the shore. The guys at dizzy cycles do it all the time. One guy went as far as to put a triple crown fork on his also.

    It seems that most of the coil shocks available, Fox, Prgressive, Romic, etc... are all 200 mm (some are shorter), which is about 10mm longer than the stock unit. Check prior posts concerning Enduro Shock upgrade, a lot of info is in that thread.
    Mine is a Fox coil with i2i of 200mm and it works really well.
