Default 2013 Front (Ski) Shock Length

Anyone get to measure the 2013 Pro Front (Ski) Shock extended Length?
I just got Fox Evol R for my 09 dragon and hope they fit on the 13 pro.
I thought I read that the 13 where shorter than the 12. So my new foxz's are 17" C/C extended.

Thanks

Jeff

The 12s are 17.5 so you should be good.

I read somewhere that they might have changed from the 2012 to the 2013. Not sure if it was just the mounting location on the new arms or a shock change length. It looks like Carls Cycle has one at their shop so maybe they could let us know.

The new 2013 Pro RMK shock is almost an inch shorter than the 11/12' Pro.

2013 PRO RMK is 16.63" extended (Center to Center length)

2011/12 PRO RMK is 17.50" extended

A Dragon/IQ is 17.20" extended.


Some of this is because of the new design lower a-arm on the 13 which has a higher mounting point on the a-arm for the lower shock eye... I think that the 13 also dropped the ride height in the front a bit... which may account for some improved handling character of the sled.. but I have no solid info on that.

I'm not sure on the Standard RMK... that info is not available yet.

Your Foxes for the Dragon would fit... but would raise the ride height..plus you would need to enlarge the holes in the shock reducer bushings to 10mm.

You could send them into a good fox shop and get them shimmed to reduce the extended length... but that would also reduce the total travel... The PRO RMK evol R's also have a different valving package.

Default 2012 A-arms on 2013?

MH, are the inner mounting locations the same on a 2013? I see the swaybar mount is different, but if I have a set of aftermarket a-arms on a 2012, would they fit on the 2013, mount up with the swaybar and be able to keep/use the high end shocks I have on my 2012?

Yes.. Your entire front end from the 2012 will swap over to the 2013... including A-arms and shocks.

Pics of the two front ends... 2012 first

Notice that the 2013 lower is mounted inboard and higher with the aluminum end forging.

After looking at the 2013 swaybar mount. Is that mount glued to the arm? Is the glue really that strong?

Do you think the valving would be worth changing?
I know my dealing with Fox with my mountain bikes have been really good. So maybe I could send them in to get revalved if its not to much money!

I'm still liking my dragon. But have to say my last ride out I was with two guys on 2012 pro's. We where in 3-4' freash snow and early in the day I had no problem going and staying with them. But later in the day after it warmed up my dragon was pushing more snow and trentching (Getting Stuck). The pro's got right up on top and tractored circle around me!!

Just noticed... the 2013 has jounce bumpers on the Ski Shocks...

And the lower shock-rod-eye is shorter/smaller..........Hmm
