    Rear shock set up X Carbon with RT3

    I just put my X carbon together, front end with a SID works excellent but I have some trouble getting the rear shock adjusted (Monarch RT3).

    To get 75-80% of shock travel I have to go down to 90 psi (I'm 72 kg/158 lbs) and that seam kind of low. At 140 psi i only get like 5% sag and very limited overall travel.

    What pressure are you running? Any ideas of if it's reasonable to run it at 90 psi or might it be defect?

    I'm about the same weight and have mine set for 105-110 PSI for about 20% sag. Try playing with the rebound. Took me a few short rides to get it dialed in.

    Thanks!
    Did a test run with plenty of roots and rocks with the pump in the back pack. It rides really good but I still need to do some tuning to get full travel

    The RT3 does seem a bit stiff compared to RP23 on the initial stroke.
