Proper Suspension Setup when using Bung King Sliders with Legend Shocks
If you choose to run Bung King Sliders or any other form of crash protection with our shocks, it is critical that you have the crash protection mounted with the correct shock spacing. Our shocks incorporate spherical bearings which allow the shocks to pivot and rotate freely once installed. If the shocks are mounted with crash protection that inhibits the ability of the shocks to rotate/pivot, this can result in a binding, which causes an extremely poor ride, and ultimately can lead to a failure of the shock shaft.
In most cases, customers using some form of crash protection with their Legend shocks will need additional spacers in order to ensure the shocks are allowed to pivot and rotate on the spherical bearings.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with information regarding the year and model of the bike, the sliders or crash protection you have, and which shocks you have purchased or plan to purchase. One of our customer service representatives will get back to you with which additional spacers you need for your application and pricing.
