    New question here. ML owners’ w/RP23

    I went out on the first ride on my new small ML. Due to time constraints I was unable to give it the full test. I did notice that the RP23 while in the propedal mode was phenomenal. But in the full active mode the shock sat half way into its travel and felt sluggish on the bumpy flats. Again, this was the first ride and I was not able to give it a full ride test. But have any of you had this happen to you? I did check the recommended air pressure and the rebound was set in the middle. I will play with it over the weekend and report. You comments are welcomed and appreciated.

    In my experience, the recommended pressures in the Fox manual were way off for my weight. Or, I'm extremely deluded about how many pounds I've been packing on.
    I had much better luck measuring sag and setting pressure for about 30% of shock stroke.
    Totally agree about the propedal, though: they've really improved it.

    I went with sag and it was within 5 psi of recommended pressure in my case.

    Thanks Gentlemen,
    Question - Did you measure sag while in the propedal or full active mode?
