Hold on I’ve managed to do it. It’s reverse threaded of your looking at it from the non drive side

Yes that bolt is clockwise to loosen. It's not reverse threaded, you are just putting the tool in the end of the bolt as opposed to the head.

Not sure if it is a common / still occuring issue, but noticed when installed the shock (dhx2) that the bottom mount bearings are not spinning when tightened to the required torque, but when checking them individually, they were fine. My solution was to add a thin washer to the side where it could fit easily (top mount was installed, so the shock was alligned "where it wanted to be"), and boom, the bearings spin like a charm even after tightening the bolts. Also, this might be a good thing for the stress on the shock itself, as it corrects the misalignment caused by machining tolerances.

What size DHX2 is that? I can only find 230x60's and 230x65's but no 230x62.5

By "default" it is 230x65, and depending on the spacers you can attach, the travel can be reduced to 60mm, in 2.5mm increments. I have 2.5mm spacer on it.

yup I realised that when I pulled it out I thought it was two separate parts

Its a weird design. Had me confused for a while when i was tryung to figure it out

Could anyone running coil let me know their weight and the spring weight they're using? I just ordered a coil shock but have no clue what spring weight to get for my weight. I'm 150 lbs.

use a spring calc. will get you pretty close.

Hi anybody running 220mm rotors front and rear?

yes

Worth it ?

Going to put on some rsc’s and was thinking 220s as well

definitely feels more powerful than the rear 180mm that came on my slash 8 not too sure about the 200m it might be slightly better but I can’t really tell. They look mega tho

I´m running the Magura MT5 with 220mm front and rear and it´s pretty nice. Went to Austria this year with descents around 700-800m altitude loss in one run - no problem with heat with that rotor size. (no fading)
For my normal trails 200mm front and rear would have been enough.

Other than that, 220mm on 29er rims look pretty nice Smile

Anyone running a 65 stroke shock? Looks like there's a decent amount of clearance at bottom out.
