    06 RFX shock size

    Found a great deal on here for an 06. Just mulling over the idea of going to rp23 or dh coil. What is the stock sizing i2i and stroke that I should be looking for? Also, what if I went with a slightly longer shock, would I get a bit more travel out of the setup?

    FYI, coming from a blur XC which is now morphing into a nitrous (should be 17 lbs when done). I wanted a nice spread in travel on my bikes, thus the RFX. The Blur will be sold soon enough.

    Oh yeah, couldn't search by "RFX". I couldn't find the sizing on turner's website either. Strange.

    7.5 x 2.0

    You can get more travel by using Spot stays-search for frankenturner and partypack will give answers I believe.

    Also, give your weight and riding style, and peruse the rfx/six pack stickies at the top of the Turner forum. Great info when I was putting together my Spot. Congrats on the new to you Turner
    I once corrected DW about a bicycle related topic.

    Thanks guys. I'm 165 and usually ride dusty XC around my house, however with the RFX I hope to be able to do of course much more than that on different terrain.

    Thanks SSINGA. I'm sure that would be a great combo with your/my new fork!
