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 weight around 214 lbs
I have the low volume canisterrunning 142psi rear shock
Talas 32 150 running 92psi... still testing but I am feeling better that I know someone in this forum is around the same psi.. what is your rebound and compression setting >
