So I have a typical Talon 1000x-4. I like the ride of it and the suspension, some complain about it but I think it’s pretty damn good for off factory floor. But I’m always looking for upgrading to make anything better. Now I’ve seen that the live valves have 2.5 fox qs3’s all around and all other models have 2.5s in back and 2.0 in front...so I’d love to have that feature as well, I think having the 2.5s in the front would make it much more able and handle better. But trying to find 2.5 standards without the live valve feature I’ve been unsuccessful. Wondering if anyone knows where or if this could be done, because I’d be all for having 2.5 non live valves all around vs 2.0s in front, I think it would be bitchin!!

My front right adjuster knob stopped "clicking into" the 1,2 and 3 setting its just kinda loose and moves from the 1 to 3 setting with little effort.
Have any idea what I damaged on it or whats happening?

The gas has leaked out of the shock. Put on some Schrader valves and get them filled equally.

Thank you for the help the valves that came in it sucked it only has 115 miles on it and I am not that hard on it.

It is a common problem with Fox shocks that have the little rubber filler. If they are under warranty, the dealer will replace the bad shock. If not under warranty, I suggest you throw away the rubber fillers and replace the end caps with proper Schrader valve end caps like these (there are many others on the market as well)...

George White with Double E Racing has done a lot of testing with the Honda Talon. He does not just have one valve set up for all cases. He has tested in the trails, rocks, short course racing and Desert Racing. So he has a great handle on what set up you will need for your ride. East coast and West cost testing as well. Guy has a great load of knowledge on the HONDA Talons. If my sons class did not have to run stock setup. George would have already done ours. ( Purchasing another set to completely set up for testing ) George can get you the FOX Podium shocks and the shredder valve caps as well.

Thinking about doing the same thing on my 21 X. 2seater LV. Before I drop the coin for a set of nicely set up set of(non-LV)qs3's, I dont know how stupid my electronics are gonna get by just simply unplugging the stock LV set up...can't find any Intel...heard anything?
