It’s the valve core itself that sets the rated working pressure. There is some licensing bs still going on with real Schrader valve cores. The place I bought the last packet of 800psi cores from in the USA said “you never got these from us ok”.


The fox IFP pellet stopper screw thread is 5/16-24 UNF

that's for the newer ones isn't it. I'm 99% sure that's what the motorcycle place gave me, so if someone wants to try this on a newer shock they can have this one

my shock is a ye olde 2010 or 2011

5/16th is nominally 7.95mm, most measure 7.7mm

What’s the diameter of the fitting they gave you?

RP3, launched in the early 2000’s used the same 5/16-24 pellet thread. There isn’t a whole lot of space for anything bigger.

The new fitting I got is about the same size. The thread is the problem. It’s a lot closer together, I can only get it in a quarter turn before it seizes

I’m sure you’re right. I’m definitely deep into the “google dyor” with this and just parroting what I read.

im guessing that teknik m8 one fits because the threads are close enough and it only screws in a few turns

any tips on where would have the 5/16 24 unf and might be open on a weekend?

Ahh hate the “I want to ride this weekend” feeling with a broken bike.

Good luck

cheers pm sent!

I give up haha. I tried a 4wd suspension specialist, a proper auto parts store and i even gave bmcr.com.au a call, their site says they dont send shocks off to get serviced so was hoping they'd have a fox replacement valve on hand but no luck
