suspension setup question

Recommended Posts

ok.. so when i set my race sag and all, it seemed the general consensus was to turn the BLUE nut (high speed damping) all the way out; maybe one turn in..

now i ride the sandy pine barrens of NJ..and in a brochure from factory suspension (which i do not have), it says "for soft/sandy terrain: generally stiffen fork compression and shock rebound. you want the bike to ride up on top of the terrain, allowing the forks to ride up a little higher"..

so does this mean to stiff the high speed damping ? i know i stiffened my front forks, so i'm ok there.. but what about the rear ? cheers.

they are saying to stiffen the rebound on the shock.in combination with stiffening the forks it will keep the front from dving/knifing.
