    Max Fork PSI

    Hi All,

    New to Mountain Biking and just picked up my new bike.

    I have a RockShox Recon Silver Fork. The chart shows me PSI to 220lbs. I will be easily at 300 lbs with gear, a clydesdale+. What would be a recommended PSI for 300, or what do you all think would be a safe max PSI to pump into the fork?

    Thank you,
    Bill

    Is 200 psi the max pressure for the fork or recommended PSI for 300lbs?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Rule of Thumb

    First test your sag, then adjust to 2/3 of your weight. Go to foxracing.com and find your shock. Good Luck. You can adjust up or down, There should be a max psi not to exceed.

    Did you even read his post? He says he's got a RS Recon.


    Max PSI will be listed somewhere in the user manual...http://www.sram.com/_media/techdocs/...r%20Manual.pdf

    Kooshbal - I understand how to adjust the sag but thank you and I agree there should be a PSI max. "foxracing.com" is apparel?

    Berkley-Yeh you would think that there would be a max PSI listed in the manuel as this would be an important point I would think, but it is not, or maybe the max is insanely high. I did read that manual, another install guide, utube videos, google searches and a search on this forum. Nothing I could find.

    I will give them a call and post here for future generations.
