    Manitou Swinger Air X3 set-up instructions?

    I just bought a 2007 Manitou Swinger Air X3 but it came without a user manual. Since I found only 2006 Shock Manual from Manitou website I would like to get some set up advice on 2007 shock.

    It seems like the main difference between 2006 and 2007 shock is that 2007 X3 has a lever for adjusting the SPV. Is there any other differences setup-wise? Can I just follow setup instructions on 2006 manual except when adjusting SPV?

    Does anybody know where to find the 2007 manual?

    I don't have an X3 but I don't see how it can be that difficult. I believe the new X3's only have one air chamber now, so I would set the spv lever to the softest setting and just set the air pressure to achieve whatever amount of sag is recommended for your bike (usually between 20-30% or so). Try around 125psi, check sag and adjust from there. Then just experiment with the spv lever settings on the trail to achieve the ride you want.
