    Question for fuel ex riders

    I'm just curious on how other fuel ex riders adjusted their rear shock? as far as mine goes I opened up the gate about 50% set the rebound wide open and put about 85 psi (half my body wieght)

    This shock is very adjustable and so I just want to figure out works for other people?

    Thanks
    Eric

    Dang - no answers!

    I was hoping for some feedback on this thread since I'm a noob with no clue. Guess I'll have to break down and read the directions.

    I just bought aa EX-7 last week (MC-3 shock) and have set it up according to Trek's Fuel settings. About 8 or 9mm sag on the air and two or three clicks in from full rabbit on the rebound. Floodgate about in the middle. We'll see how it works out...

    Fuel EX 8 05'

    I weigh about 170 so i put 125 psi in my MC3R shock. Gate half way and rebound (turtle/ rabbit) is set so when i go off a curb it only goes down then up one time.

    johnnychimpo, just curious how much sag your setup gives you. I weigh 176 and to get 8 or 9 mm sag I have my pressure set at about 115# on MC3.3...
