Hey all,
I just got a switch with a rp3 shock. How much press should I run in it? It seems like at 180 psi, it bottoms over smallish jumps 3-5 feet high. I only weigh 170 w/out gear. it seems right at about 215 psi, is that too much.
thanks
tim.

I'm about 189lbs without gear on and I run mine at 200-215.

I noticed on mine that on drops when the shock was really (but not totally) compressed that the seat mast would come into contact with the rocker plates - check whether that's happening on yours.

The fix was to 'shave/file' some material from the seatmast and now it runs with proper clearance and the shock never bottoms out at these pressures.

:thumbsup:
