Just reset the static and free sag on my 04 as I've lost a bit of weight. Now trying to get into it a bit more with rebound and compression damping settings. Anyone who can chime in with a bit of info to help with this???? Maybe Hillcountry, or Big Daddy might have something to say on the matter... would be greatly appreciated. I weigh 77kilos 173 pound and mainly road use, settings are reasonable at the moment by the seat of the pants, but interested in what you guys come up with

Turn them all out and go one click at the time then stop as desired.
Thanks. The reason i'm asking is that I don't get to the track much to test it, then adjust and retest etc. Looking for probably setting tried and true for my weight

I can share my fork settings but thats it as i had a Penske on the rear. I weight 190lbs with full gear.

preload = 5.5 lines showing
rebound = 6 clicks out from full hard
comp = 12 clicks out from full hard

No one elses setting will be perfect for you. Your preload greatly affects where your rebound and comp. should be. I would reccomend watching some vids and reading about them. Start in the middle with comp. You should put a zip tie on the fork slider so you can see how much travel you are using under normal ridding( no wheelies while testing this) If the zip tie ends up 3/4 of the way towards bottoming out then your comp. is very close to correct. Rebound you should start in the middle and make 1 click adjustments in both directions untill finding what works for you. Sags are somewhat a matter of prefrence on the street. 30-35mm in the front 25-30 in the rear. I like mine just a little on the softer side so the bumps dont jam my arms into my shoulders. Each turn of preload can affect your rebound by one click. Hope this helps. :mrgreen:
