    RP 23 feels harsh on 08' 5spot.

    While riding a local high speed downhill trail, I noticed my rear shock felt harsh at times. The trail is 3-4 miles down that you can carry speed. Is it the oil getting hot or do I need to increase the rebound? Never really noticed before during normal riding. Thanks!
    Too wet to ride!

    You are asking the right questions. When's the last time you've had the shock serviced? If its been over a year recommend you start there. Suspense Experts or Push can do it and for a bit more can give it a rider specific tune.
