    RP3 Lever problem...always moving

    Any fix for the lever adjustment on the RP3?
    On my Flux I set the lever in the "firm" position....looking down it's to the right. I notice after hitting some hard hits the lever will not stay in place and "falls" to the newtral position (straight down). Any fix for this?

    Obviously you have the '05 version of the RP3. As far as I know there is no "fix" for it. I have the same problem with mine on my Yeti 575. I have yet to try it but I've heard someone suggest cutting the pro pedal lever in half to try and get rid of the "pendulum" effect. It will probably do the trick, I just haven't gotten around to cutting mine yet. I even had mine sent into Push and Darren said there wasn't anything he could do

    Yep my '06 on my 575 has a noticeable detent that keeps the switch in place. I've never used an 05, but I'm assuming it doesn't have this detent.

    Better choice....

    I'm calling Fox and demanding an 06.
    That's BS that's they way it works. Kind of like owning a Porshe where the gas pedal keeps falling off to the side with "no fix"

    Thanks,

    If I owned a Porshe I would expect the gas pedal to keep falling off as it is obviously a cheap knock off of a Porsche.........

    I would imagine that Fox would fix it for you,ask them. All the 05's were too soft in the detent.It should be quick and easy for Fox to fix.

    I had the same problem with my vanilla RL, although it was a much worse problem because the lever would rotate to the "lockout" position due to trail vibrations. That was not a good experience.
