    Help with my Fox RP2 BV on my Enduro

    got a 2010 enduro expert. came with a fox RP2 w/ Boost Valve. i am trying to set up my sag correctly.

    does the boost valve versions require more air than the standard rp2?

    im about 180-190 lbs. does anyone know the correct pressure to set the shock to?

    i put in about 200psi, but its still sagging about 33%. should i add more?

    anyone with rp2bv or enduro experience please chime in. thanks.

    i found this online.

    i belive the 2010 RP2BV was made custom for the enduro, hense thers not too much info on it (and its not listed in the chart).

    should i just go with the setting for the RP23BV. i recall somone saying on a unrelated post that the boost valve shox require more air but im not sure.

    Depends on how much sag you want. i run 210 and weight 180 on my rp23BV and end up with right about in the middle of the sag o meter

    I weigh about 200lbs and run 240psi on my 2010 RP2 with Boost Valve. The sag is between 25% and 30%.

    EDIT: It seems like I can add or subtract quite a bit of air and get very similar sag. My 240psi setting is based on feel during riding, not sag setting.

    I have the 2010 enduro expert with RP2-BV shock on it. I am 170 lbs geared up to ride, and I've just recently got the shock set up to my liking. I started by measuring sag with a metric ruler on the shaft, sitting and checking for 12-14mm to the o-ring. I started at 160 psi, got 14mm sag, but the ride was still mushy and wallowed at times. I've added 10-15 psi every weekend for the past month, and it's felt better to where I rode yesterday with 210 psi, still getting 12-13mm sag, and peddled much better, and still got full travel. I also noticied I had less pedal to rock strikes, but that could be my awareness of that issue.

    to the OP; with your weight of ~185, I would try around 230+ in the shock and see how that works for you.

    i put in about 230 last night in the garage. sat on it and sagometer reading was about 25%. hadnt got a chance to ride it yet tho. felt alil stiff, im gunna have to try it out.

    when i rode it the first day i had way to many pedal rock strikes, not good.

    will i still get full travel and plush feeling with 230 psi?

    230 in the shock should be about right. Best bet is to take it for a ride and see for yourself if your getting full travel.

    The guy at a speccy demo day told me to set it up so it felt pretty good, then add 5 psi. It seems to behave the best with just a little extra pressure.

    As for pedal strikes, the bottom bracket is a little low, which I LOVE for everything but uphill, rocky, climbs where it can get a little annoying. Run tough pedals and work on your timing. I used to hit my pedals much more than I do now. The trade off for the lower center of gravity is well worth it in my opinion.
