    You weigh 170lbs +/-.....................

    .........and ride your Reign "all mtn."/"aggressive xc" approx. 60/40 using 2.35 tires.

    What psi do you run in your main/spv chambers?

    Run enough air pressure in the main chamber to get between 25-40% sag, adjust to taste.
    Start out by setting the SPV pressure to the minimum 40 psi. If you want less out of the saddle bob, increase the SPV pressure a bit (10 psi) and try again. The down side to increasing the SPV pressure is that the small bump compliance will suffer.

    Your tire pressures sound really high for you weight.

    Yeah thanks, I can do that just wondering what others had arrived at.

    60/40 is riding venue %s, not tire pressures!

    First off, I'm assuming you're referring to the swinger 3 way.

    If that's the case, I'm 160 nekkid (170-175 with gear) and run about 110-115 psi in the main chamber and as little as possible in the SPV. Usually around 60 psi.

    Since you're revising an almost 2 year old thread that you started, what are your issues? In general, I would worry less about "what pressure" and worry more about "what sag". I like to have 30-35% sag on my rear shock.
