    Impossible to tell.

    A lot of OEM products force you to run rather fast rebound, because the high speed rebound stacks are too stiff/ineffective. A lot of people unknowingly get "used" to this, but you have to work within the limitations of the suspension, unless you are going to revalve it.

    You're turning black metallic.

    Those handlebars barely moved at all, Iíd say rebound is pretty close to perfect

    You can't test like that. It has to be done on a real trail that you ride.

    ^^^ yeah. It looks OK for going down those steps at that speed, but I don't think that's much like the trails you'll be riding. Use that setting and go out and ride a representative trail. Try it again a couple of clicks each way to gauge the effect and then adjust from there.
    Do the math.

    The best at home test is to just bounce around in your backyard, slowing it down until the bucking stops. This is faster, easier, and works about the same as going over steps or a curb over and over.

    But same thing, that gets you a very coarse baseline to get you on a trail and start real adjustments.

    If you were doing nothing but riding stairs all the time, a very fast rebound setting would be appropriate. Probably even just running full open would work! But this does nothing good on the trail.

    Thanks for the good feedback guys, Iím going out today in the trails to make real adjustments, was mainly aiming for a base setting and then taking it from there,

    ^^^ That's good. I suggest continuing to experiment with less and more rebound to experience the effect in different conditions. You may find that you'll want different amounts for different riding and conditions.
    Do the math.

    Thanks Lone Ranger thatís a good point, I havenít even touched lsc yet but I donít think the fork is diving under breaking so probably wonít have to ?

    I think when Iím at the bike park riding more berms then maybe a few clicks will be needed. ?
