    2011 Jedi fat man spring rate?

    What spring rate for a 200lb'er, 350 or 400?.. currently on 300x2.75 and way too soft

    I had a 2011 jedi, rode it with a 350. I weight 130lbs
    I'm riding the 2013 one with a 325.
    If my maths are ok, you'd need something around 500lbs spring.

    i ran a 500 at 210lbs. i also rode it rampage status. you would probably be fine with a 450...

    Isn't that the wrong stroke for the spring....I think those were 3.0 strokes...you can go higher but not lower
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days

    It's a 2011 jedi so 2.75 is the right size.
    They increased travel and shock size for the MY2014

    You can't fit a longer shock on a jedi.
    222*70 only. (or 222*63 but you'll have less travel)

    Most recent jedis (after 2014) are longer by 10mm if I recall. (and they use a 240mm shock) between 2011 and 2013 there is not much difference, most visible one being the machined links.

    2018 has more traval, 27" wheels, slacker head angle, more "linear" suspension, a tad lighter. I don't know what are the difference between 2014 and 2018.
    So it's more modern, but you'll be at home as it still work like a jedi, a bit better.
