    RP23 on El Rey setup

    Sorry, the search function isn't working for me. Any idea of a good starting air pressure for an El Rey with a rp23, 4" rockers and 190lb. rider?

    Thanks

    Yea, I know that. I am trying to set this up for someone else. I don't weigh that much. I was just trying to get an idea of around how many psi.

    About 80 % my geared up weight converted to PSI seems to give me the right sag on my Capitan ! 190 lbs geared up x .8 = 152 PSI . TIG.

    Besides a percentage. Would not the PSI be different if you were using a HV canister compared to the standard?

    yes.... the psi for a given sag point is different depending on the sleeve size...

    That is what I thought. So unless we know which canister the individual has or what canister a suggested PSI is for! It is still a shot in the dark suggesting a certain PSI versa a sag percentage.

    exactly..that's why sag is usually a better way to go...or at least an easier starting point...

    Might sound a bit silly but......get a backpack or camelback etc, load it up with weights/rocks etc until you're close to that weight and then sit on the bike and adjust the PSI until you have the right SAG.
