Measured sag - 130mm... what now ?!

Recommended Posts

And this was without eq. and helmet.

spring is stock and in the middle (I still have harden it a little). could it be the rear shock is missing some gas ?!

I don't want to send it revalve or buy new springs now.

so beside some diet :cry: any other things i can do to improve this ?

it is too low, raise it to about 100mm

and fine tune from there.

How ?! by adjusting the rear shock spring ?

dont forget im also heavy and I use stock springs

I weight around 106kg without eq and im 1.86m

yup, just crank down the spring.

for ya weight, ya may need to change the shock spring.

the more ya crank the spring, the lesser the spring length travel.

But I shouldn't crank it till the botton ...

I've understood there is a minimum I should have (like 2 c"m from the bottom of the screw) that should be free...

At 106 kg you will need new shock and fork springs to get the best performance outta your bike. I weigh 220 lbs. At first I adjusted the shock spring to get 100 mm sag but have since put in a stiffer spring and can really tell the difference.

I know but I cant buy only shock spring , need to do forks on the same time and this is $$$ which I dont have now.

Speaking from experience (I'm a hefty lad myself) you won't be able to set your sag correctly with the stock spring. Your just going to have to live with it until you get your suspension revalved and new springs. Set it the best you can until then. :cry:

You can replace only the spring. And that is a good place to start. :cry:
