    Elka Settings for 2011 Jedi

    Just got my Jedi built up and will be taking it out tomorrow for its maiden voyage. Just curious if anyone here could share their Elka settings

    Here is the info I am interested in

    Rider weight
    Coil #
    HSC
    LSC
    Rebound
    Sag %

    any info would be appreciated and used for a baseline

    Ahh, I was going to ask pretty much the same question but for my One. Although you probably know this, as a baseline for my staring point I jut did what the Elka instructions said. And from there I made some little changes which has gone a long way.

    And just for your info, I have noticed that the Elka has seemed to have broken in some. I don't know if it is just me or my shock but it's a lot different from when I first started riding it a couple of weeks ago. So give it a little time to shine!

    Rider weight = 150
    Coil # = 350
    HSC = 2 (almost off, only all if your bottoming)
    LSC = 6 ( just enough to slow any excessive body bounce)
    Rebound = 8 ( this is to your liking, I run mine fast)
    Sag % = 30% (spring rate is the important one here)

    Thanks Lance, Here is mine so far with added notes.

    Rider weigh 190
    Coil # 400
    HSC 8 clicks (could probably start turning it down but this is what elka suggested. not bottoming it yet
    LSC 20 clicks (anything less and mine feels like a pogo stick, bounces like crazy, wicked pedal bob, Also elka suggested 22 clicks)
    Rebound not 100% sure, kept adjusting it until it felt right, fairly slow
    Sag % about 30%

    Hey Guys.....Ive been on a '11 Jedi all summer. Here is what im happiest with:

    Rider Weight : 165lbs.
    Coil #: 400lbs.
    Pre-load: 1 turn
    HSC: 6 clicks in
    LSC: 6 clicks in
    Rebound: about 1/2 way. I prefer a faster rebound to keep traction. ELKA has great speed sensitive damping.
    sag: 28-30 %

    Overall I am very happy with the Stage 5 on the Jedi. I was running a 350lbs spring and im much happier on the 400lbs now. I was having to compensate by making compression settings. This shock and incredibly linear and bottomless feeling. I prefer it over Avalanche and Fox. Works on unison with the new 888 evo forks.

    Out of curiosity I fired an email to Elka, asking what settings they recommend (as a starting point) for the Stage 5 shock on the Jedi. This is their response:

    Sag 30%

    FROM FULL IN, BACK :
    8 clicks on Hi speed
    8 clicks on Low Speed
    10 clicks on Rebound
