Default WTB: RMK/Switchback rear rear shock

That isn't a shitty stock hydraulic. Anyone have a Fox, W.E., Ryde FX, etc that measure 16.75 center to center?

How soon do you need it? I will have a Fox Position Sensitive that needs a rebuild. (As soon as I put my reservoir shock in)

Is it 16.75 c to c? Rebuild as in just oil or a recharge too? How much do you want for it?

The shock I got as a replacement is 16.75. I don't have the old one out yet, so I don't know for sure if it's the same length. It probably will be. The shock is original and hasn't been rebuilt, so I imagine it needs oil change, seals, and a recharge. I don't know anything about shocks, but that's what they need, isn't it?

I'll have to look on ebay for pricing. I'll give you a decent deal, but I'm not giving it away.

K check all that out and let me know. I have a line on a Ryde FX for a really good deal...

What made you ditch the Position Sensitive?

It bottoms out more than it used to, so I assume that it needs a rebuild. I was too lazy to get my sled prepared before the season, so now I'm just getting another shock to swap out and then sell the old one. Then I won't lose any riding time waiting for turnaround on the rebuild. I've already done the swap on the fronts, so I have some fronts for sale too.

statistics? Why the hell did you tell rubi to derive some statistics about the shock when you want a price? Now it's gonna take him forever to get back to you.

There's the shock. Seems to be 16 1/2 or 16 5/8 center to center. Shaft is very straight and shiny; no pitting from corrosion. About 1/2" from the top mount there are a couple speckles and a tiny nick that you can feel with your fingernail. Usually there is ice buildup by the top mount, and it looks like maybe some sand or something was in the ice to make those marks.

Shock extends on its own, and I don't hear any squishy, bubbly noises during travel. I don't know if this is a characteristic of the Position Sensitive shock, but the first inch and a half of travel is stiff, then the next two inches are soft, and then the last two inches are stiff again. Seems to be a good shock. PM me with your intentions.

Hey Breakstuff, did you use this shock or just add it to your collection? I like the Position Sensitive better than the clicker I got. Might want to trade or buy it back if you haven't used it yet.

I have it on my skid. The ass end of my sled still isn't stiff enough for me. I got the shock I bought from you recharged but still not good enough for me. Is the clicker charged?

Hell I never even rode it with the Fox on it...
