Front and rear sag calcs

Recommended Posts

Per Dwight Rudder:

Front suspension static sag should be 14% ( available travel in mm X .14 = static sag in mm)

Front suspension rider sag should be 25% (X .25 = Rider sag)

Rear suspension static sag should be 11% of available travel (X .11 = static sag)

Rear suspension rider sag should be 34% of available travel (X .34 = rider sag)

Are these the settings that work the best for Dwight or did he get them from some other source?

These setting are the 'magic numbers' to aim for when setting up a bike with high compliance suspension.

May require custom mixed front springs to get the correct sag number.

The calcs are based on keeping the factory geometry for the 'generic' rider the same as for your bike and rider.

It covers all off road bikes.

Very similar to the Factory Connection and Pro Circuit 'secret formulas'.
