    Looks like I’m going to upgrade the suspension on my ‘15 XRX and will be sending the forks to Traxxion for revalving and springs and replacing the OEM rear shock with an aftermarket unit.

    I need to remove the rear shock and fork legs then reinstall the upgraded parts.

    Anyone know where I might be able to find the torque specs for the various fasteners I’ll need to remove and torque on install without purchasing an OEM factory manual?

    the Manual for my 2013 Xc says. Rear Shock 48Nm on the upper bolt and 80Nm on all the lower links. It also says to replace the old nut with a new one. I upgraded mine a couple of years ago and didn't change it but it did call for it. Hope this helps

    shedman2,

    Awesome!

    Didn't even know that forum existed.

    Looks like a ton of great information.
