    Advice on buying a RP23 for a 5 Spot

    I thinking of getting an RP23 to replace my DHX Air on my 5 Spot as I get through the mid stroke quiet quickly.
    I have on order some new Push Rockers and thought I would change the shock aswell, but I can't get a Pushed RP23 in the UK at the moment so will have to get a stock shock for now. There seems to be diffrent models of RP23 with light, medium or hard settings and large or standard air cans, what would be best?
    Thanks

    I would go with light. I ran the Pushed Rockers with a Pushed RP23 at the THC in Moab, and I never turned on the PP.

    Push recommends "light" for their rockers on a Spot.

    If you ordered direct from turner, I would think you would get one that is setup for the bike pretty well. Is this correct?

    Dusty, how will you know if the RP23 is Light, Medium or Hard when you purchase one?
    What are the indicators? Thanks!

    The propedal level indicator is on the shock's sticker. You can see 3 vertical bars (low, medium, high)

    I got a PUSH'd version with standard air can, seems fine with PUSH rockers here.

    Dude, they are talking about the range of adjustments based on an initial factory setting. The lever has 3 different settings but it's the range within which the lever operates that is being dicussed here. Fox sets them up different for different styles of bikes.

    So the 3 levels of factory propedal (the 3 RANGE bars), which is what matters when buying the shock, affect the level of damping that the 3 positions on the lever have, just as I said...

    Iíve just switched from a DHX-A to standard RP23 (its medium with a standard air can) with push rockers.

    Only had 58km ride time; but I love the propedal on\off and the push rockers totally sort the geo with the pike.
