    Element 70 MSL sag indicator?

    So I pulled the trigger on the 70 MSL and I couldn't be more amped except for one thing-

    Is there any info out there for rear suspension set up? Or how to read the sag indicator? I see the lines but I'm clueless as to what they mean.

    Thanks everyone!

    Easiest thing to do is start with your body weight in the rear shock and half your body weight in the fork and adjust up or down from there in 5psi increments.

    From what I read the lines represent 0, 25 and 100% sag respectively. Does that make sense for anyone with a MSL/RSL sag indicator?

    That's the plan, but I've found that the indicators tend to drift around...

    Has anyone tried replacing the indicator washer with a teflon or Polyurethane washer?

    The easiest thing to do is get the conical alloy ABC washer for the other side (the washers are different on each side) and just swap the sag indicator out with the washer with the shoulder.
