Hi all did anyone make this transformation?
I guess this is a simple removal of spacers in the Fox DPX2 but which?
If someone has a guide, a tutorial please share it!
Who already makes this modify note some differences between the two versions?


Thanks

On the DPX2 the ringer limiter has to be cut. And for your Fox 36 Fit 4 fork you need a replacement 160mm airshaft ~$40. I did it and the bike runs great. Better than the Yeti SB130LR as that fork they spec with the LR is a Fox 36 Grip 2 which is much heavier then the Fox 36 Fit 4.

I only converted the shock to the 137mm and kept the fork at 150mm. I love it!

do you notice the rear having 137mm of travel compared to the original 130?

Honestly, it might be Placebo but still worth it IMHO.

2022 Models spec the float X. Anyone convert those to 137 hear it's a bit harder.

I swapped out the OEM DPX2 for a 2022 Float X on my 2021 SB 130 TLR. The ride is a bit firmer but feels waaay more planted, less bouncy, no more bottoming out & the difference is amazing! All the 2022 Yeti SB130 models are fitted with the Float X now!

Cool, how easy is it to convert a float x to the LR version?

Allan67, it was simple as I purchased the exact same 210 X 55mm shock. The re & re took 15 minutes! I sold the DPX2 in no time, here on the Pinkbike classifieds.
