    Help-new Rfx Setup Advice

    I finally have my Turner RFX and I am starting the build today. Does anybody have any baseline setups for the rear suspension? I have the RP23 and I weigh 240lbs. Thanks and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Clean the bottom of the shock shaft very well and get a sharpie pen. Deflate the shock completely and sit on the bike. Push down with all your weight. Get off the bike. Mark the point on the shock shaft that the o-ring ended up with the sharpie. That is full travel. Inflate the shock to about 90% of body weight (about 210psi) and push the o-ring back up. Sit on the bike in a normal riding position. Get off the bike and check to see how far the o-ring got pushed down. You want a bit over 1/2" of sag. Play with the pressure until you can get about 25-30% sag. That said, sag is a starting point, not an end in itself. Riding is the proof in the pudding, so...

    Go ride the bike. Hard. Hit stuff. If you get full travel on the biggest hits you would see, good. If not, drop the pressure by 5 or 10 psi. If you get full travel too easily, up the pressure 5-10 psi.

    Experiment.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.
