You know its funny how we buy these bikes because they have all the adjustable shocks and stuff. I used to ride Moab rocks and hardpack desert. I can't tell you what my settings were but I will say I made sure that left and right fork were the same and the shock was about the same as the front. Basically it was time consuming for me to get her where it wasn't bouncing and wasn't bottoming out. I did change the fork oil to 5W when I checked my steering bearings but after that I figured I was set for my ridding style and weight. Well I moved to a new area and recently found some woods and jeep mountain trails. Lots of high speed with softball and an occasion football size rocks and holes. I been getting real tired and arthritis has been bothering my elbows and forarms. Today I decided to loosen things up and backed off everything top and bottom front and back 2 clicks cause it was easy to remember. Went on a 100 mile ride over the same trail as last weekend. It was much more comfortable and I felt in much more control. More relaxed and when I hit the water bars standing up I would jump on the pegs a bit just as I hit them. If you get the timing right you get just a bit of air with a soft landing. I think I only bottomed the front one time on the ride. I guess my point to this is that don't get stuck in the rut and not change your settings. Figure out what works for different terrain and let the bike do the work. I been taking a beating for no reason. I know I went faster and tonight I feel like I could have rode more. Do the rest of you guys change yours much or just leave it the same?
