I am working on dialing in the suspension on my '08 FXR. I weight about 185Lbs. with gear and ride everything from flowing to technical single track with drops up to four feet.
My goal is to achieve rebound balance between the Curnutt air and Float RC2. I want the compression soft as possible, especially small bump, while keeping balanced with the Curnutt platform. I like the rebound fast a possible without being bouncy. I also want to just barley bottom out off the largest jump/drop.
I am looking for feedback on what fork and shock pressures you are running and how that setup works for you. Please post you setups with comments.
Here are my setups with notes.
'09 Fox Float RC2
Air Pressure - 50 PSI
Rebound (Red Knob) - 8 clicks back from full clockwise
High-Speed Compression - 10 clicks back from full clockwise
Low-Speed Compression - 8 clicks back from full clockwise
Feel is good overall and tracking is great. Small bump is better at 10 clicks. Only using 5.75". Need to soften a little to get full travel.
Air Pressure (Main) - 70 PSI
Rebound - 2.5 turns back from full slow
Bottoming Control - 1.75 turns from full clockwise
Air Pressure (Bottoming Ctrl) - 70 PSI
Small bump is a little harsh. Not getting full travel, about 3/8" left on shock. Rebound is good. Going to drop to 65 PSI in main and BC to see if that works better.
