anyone having problems with the downtube protection not sticking to the frame properly? is there any glue or tape to use without damaging the paint?

My Slash 8 is doing the same. I've seen people say to use a low strength epoxy glue, some flexible epoxy, or some more 3m VHB double sided tape. I guess it's from the adhesive not sticking well to the shiny paint, but to me, it looks like the curve of the protector doesn't match the curve of the frame.

I'm thinking about pulling it and scuffing up the paint below it slightly, cleaning, and reapplying with new adhesive.

The part number is: 11.4118.051.005

And here is a shop link: https://bikesale.com/rockshoxrearshockvolumereducerkit-includes3positivetokenssuperdeluxethrushaftc12021.aspx

Just got one token installed, feels pretty good so far. Gets a little more poppy and you can definetly feel more back pressure in the travel.
yes and whatever you do, DO NOT put the normal super deluxe tokens the thru shaft has special ones idk what happens but Ive heard its not funny things

I got the new ones. I'm not trying to immediately trash a $600 shock. I'd cry.
yes lmao me too. one of my friends almost did that. he said "nah i have a couple of spacers lying around from my super deluxe" and I was like "stop right there"

Mine was completely peeling off down at the bottom bracket. I took it to the store I brought it from and they replaced it no questions asked. it seems to be holding on much better now

omg I had the exact same problem and the shop replaced it. I'm getting my bike back today so ill see how it went.
however, I suspect the bottom part was pushed down too much by the misplaced top part but since they only provided the bottom part to replace, I fear it might do the same thing, but I guess I'll see.

good question I know the normal super deluxe does not fit because lockout lever but since this one doesn't have it...
if you have it on hand, try it and fully decompress it, otherwise, ask trek and explicitly state the lockout lever situation

what is everyone running for tires? not happy with the team issues, pretty weak tire, front slipping doesn't feel secure, even with low pressures. I was looking into michelin wild enduros magix front and rear, where i live its pretty flat, lots of loose dirt with roots, nothing to steep and crazy but i plan on doing bikepark trips and riding nature trails, so i need something that rolls decent and is still strong and secure. any recommendations?

front: Maxxis assgai bike park... not park, dhf or mellow trails dhr2.
Rear: dhr2 for big stuff like park or steep, dissector/aggressor for more rolling speed and fun.

I use Exo+ for home trails with no rocks, i move to DD for bike park if in a sending mood, havnt tore a exo+ yet at the park yet.

Aggressor DD rear / Assegai exo+ front.
