21 June 2012 - 8:39WFO Upgrades
After fiddling around with the stock Monarch shock on Weapon X for a few months now, I have come to the conclusion that I need a different rear shock. I’ve never been able to find a good setting that works for me, it’s a good shock, but I need a little something different for my riding style. I find myself in need of something that ramps up more, something that tightens up as I drive the back end of the bike over bumps or through turns. Had I not previously owned a WFO equipped with a DHX Air, I wouldn’t know what I was looking for.
As chance would have it, Commander Cody hand delivered a brand new DHX rear shock.
Actually, a friend had ordered one, but found out the hard way that it didn’t clear his frame. I hadn’t really been planning on upgrading the rear shock so soon, but I couldn’t pass up an opportunity like this. The shock was the right size, and a quick (actually not quick, more like 20 minutes on hold) phone call to Fox, assured me that the shock would be appropriately valved for a WFO.
I’m looking forward to trying this bad boy out.
