Date Reviewed: July 21, 2009

Strengths:    light, tunable, progressive travel

Weaknesses:    complex tuning, rebound knob, small rubber plug on right leg capping air valve

Bottom Line:   
There are alot of adjustments on this shock making it very tunable, but it may also take you a month to get it perfect. Plush but hard to bottom out once tuned. Take the screw out of the rebound knob apply lock tite before ever installing or it will fall off.

Read all of the manual.

Noob Old Shock Marathon SL ?

Did a lot of search and was able to get most of my questions answered but one. Adjusting the travel. Instructions say to put 200 PSI in the Neg port and compress the fork to change the length of travel from 100 to 80 or what ever. How do you do the reverse, 80 - 100? Or is it a one time adjustme ...
