Rear Shock Setup:Because it is highly likely the original rear shocks on older models are repaired/replaced/upgraded throughout the lifetime of the frame, we offer some very basic tuning guidelines, and recommend using the original rear shock manufacturers manual for more detailed set-up for the specific rear shock you have. Contact the rear shock manufacturer for info if you do not have it.
The key component for set-up with any rear shock here is sag. Once you have that set-up correctly, the rest of the shock settings are fine tuning adjustments (Rebound and Compression damping, etc.) set to rider preference.Recommended sag is 12-15mm at the shock shaft - This equates to approximately 25% of the total rear wheel travel. Less sag = a firmer suspension feel.For Coil rear shocks here is a rough spring size to weight guideline for average coil shocks.
This can vary based on rear shock model and manufacturer.100-130lbs - 500#140-160lbs - 550#160-170lbs - 650#180-200lbs - 750#210-230lbs - 850#
