I agree with the Fox 2.0 I have been using one but was waiting to see how it holds up before posting about it.

Don't mean to hijack this awesome thread, but I have a new Fox TS /part number 985-02-127 (https://www.amazon.com/Fox-Factory-Inc- ... B07PFGHMB6) in case anyone wants one. $270 shipped. They're out of stock until October/November. I was going to fabricate some brackets like the ones Eurowise has but decided to go a different route. DM me if interested. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

This isn't really the place for that, I'd appreciate if you refrain from that in the future.

Didn't mean to offend you with my post. I tried to delete it but can't. Maybe and admin can do it.

No worries, just didn't want my build thread to turn into a parts for sale thread. I won't even be putting my for sale parts in here myself, I'll put them in the for sale section to keep this one focused, years after parts are sold build thread can still be interesting.

This is a very interesting build thread. I feel it should be moved over to the Technical part as the interactive activity somewhat bogarts the new users’ introductions.

…and feel free to delete this post as not really pertinent to the subject at hand.

I'm good with that if a mod is able to move it and clean it up. I couldn't find a build threads section when I joined, and I was new....so here it landed :D

Do you think 16’s will clear your front calipers? I have 17’s and I have to trim my wheel weights or they click on them?

Funny to see all the talk of suspension and ESP as well, those are two of the other two issues I have with my rig (besides the noise). The LeTech/KW shocks are much better, but still a jarring ride, and the ESP issues are terrible. I had it kick in pretty hard yesterday while I was left foot braking. First time it had done that but it seems if you corner sharply enough even with left foot braking it will over-ride it and kick in the ESP. Might try to find someone to revalve the KW shocks but I really wish in hindsight I had just figured out another supplier who could get the Ohlins in extended lengths. After I gave up on them I saw a user on expo talking about having extended length Ohlins and how much he was loving them.


ORC makes an ESP cut off switch. It’s night snd day difference then getting the sh*% scared out of you going through corners and having steering wheel jerky you left into opposite flow traffic
