    Ripley V3/V2 suspension settings

    On my 2017 Ripley V3, when I set my rear suspension up according to the sag guidelines in the manual (11mm for 'firm', 13mm for 'plush'), I get no where near full travel out of the shock.

    For example, today I set the shock up with 15mm of sag, which should have been very plush, but I only got 32mm of travel on the shock, that is 95mm of wheel travel.

    As for the trail conditions, most of the rough parts (big chunky rocks and exposed roots) were slow, and most of the fast parts were pretty smooth. I wouldn't expect to bottom out my shock in these conditions, but I would expect to get more than 73% of the travel out of it.

    Has anyone else had similar experiences? If so, how do you adjust your suspension to get everything out of it?

    Are you the original owner, with the original shock?

    Yes, but I just had it repaired and tuned by Fluid Focus. Ryan there did some testing on it and didn't mention anything unusual. I did have similar issues before I sent it to FF, but I thought I'd start fresh with the various suspension adjustments post-tuning, hence my pot.
