    DHX base setting

    Hey All,
    Any one in the 215 lb range want to tell me their base settings on the DHX air rear. I'm on an 05 Enduro Expert. 215lb, shock 8.75x2.5, 6 inch travel bike. I can't find that PSI chart.
    Thanks,
    Channing

    What are your settings? Body weight?

    i'm at 185 psi on the pump. i weigh 165. remember that the pump will show ~15-20 psi higher than the actual psi in the shock. this puts me at ~165 psi. actual. i'm running ~30% sag.

    I weigh 230lbs, and am at 250psi and about 30% sag. The chart recommends that you run 215psi to 230psi. That should be a good place to start.

    I don't think 'SIZE is correct about the shock pump reading 20psi higher than what is in the shock. I think the gauge is accurate (unless your gauge is off). So don't go above 300psi.

    according to fox, the shock pump will read higher (it acually says 10 - 20 psi) than the actual psi in the shock. read page 6.

    That is only when you reconnect the pump to the shock. After inflating, the pressure equalizes and the gauge becomes accurate.

    i'm obviously reading it differently, either way my settings seem to be in line with most everyone i've talked with. roughly 20 psi over body weight seems to be a good start for a normal riding position.
