Default Adding adj. rebound to Walker Evans

I called walker Evans yesterday and they told me that they could change the shaft out on my rear shock and add adjustable rebound. I think the sled would benefit from this. Has anyone had this done?

I am guessing that you are trying to slow down the rebound to get rid of the bucking. I am also guessing you weigh more 225. I go 275 and had to crank up the preload on the RTS resulting in way to fast rebound. I switched over to ProX springs on the RTS and FTS this helped a little. Last season I had my shocks rebuilt and had the dealer use 10w shock oil, it made all the difference in the world. I was able to loosen the FTS to the lowest side of the spec in the manual and crank up the RTS. I set my clickers at 8 and rode some trails that were pretty beat up (2ft mounds) and dialed in the preload on the back. The bucking is gone the sled still hooks like it has serious daddy issues and with minimum preload on the FTS it corners even better.

I'm #225 and yes I think the buck is to much and caused from to fast rebound. I think for $150 total cost, the benefit would be huge to have it adjustable

Had adjustable rebound on my 2012, difference between highest and lowest setting was minimal. Not sure with the cost. Plus, some had an issue with adjuster knob corrosion rendering it useless.

I would give the 10w a shot it did wonders for me. Plus I was going to have them rebuilt anyway and the heavier oil was no extra charge. Not sure if you have had yours rebuilt yet or not though if not you should.. I have mine rebuilt every 2500 miles except when new have them rebuilt around 500

What exactly did the 10 weight change beside the obvious? The bucking is killing me at 190lbs almost always riding 2-3 clicks from full soft on my 2015 Pro-S
