    Fox Vanilla 130R Help

    Hey Guys. I have a 2005 Fox Vanilla 130R. When i am standing up on the bike and bounce, when the fork compresses, i can hear a 'clunking' noise in one of the legs of the fork. This fork is brand new and hasnt really been ridden yet. Is this a major problem? Is it normal? Let me know.
    Thanks

    How loud is it? It could just be the spring moving around inside.

    that could be due to complete bottoming out, in which case, get a heavier weight spring.

    Its definitely not bottoming out. It kinda sounds like the spring is hitting the side of the leg like Ironduke said. Is this a big problem?

    It shouldn't do that, it's current model year goods, take it in or write Fox.

    Mounting shocks upside down in order to get it to fit is fine.
