    New question here. Pivot Mach 5 rear shock PSI question

    I'm a Clydesdale clocking in at 285lbs with gear and i was curios what other beefy riders were running in the rp23.
    i'm at 220psi at the proper sag.
    Also what are you running in the fork ?
    I'm at 125psi but im not sure if i'm at the right sag and need to recheck.

    I would say your right in the ball park and not taxing the rp23 if that was a worry. I weight 225-230 geared up and I have 195 in the rear shock and i think 90 in the fork, maybe 80. For me if i get the fork at proper sag it really feels squishy, but i left it and am really appreciating how will it eats up terrain. Its a 150mm fox talas 32 float.

    I am running the same psi in my fork now, the compression is 4 clicks from full open, and the rebound is 7 clicks from full open.
