I picked up a new my new 575 Enduro on Friday - L Raw. I set the sag and put 210# in the shock (my weight - coming off knee surgery and hope to see 190# again real soon!) I am a little concerned over the amount of shock travel I get in light trail riding (1' drops maybe). No pedal bob issues on the light climbing I did (all seated), and I didn't feel the shock bottom, but I did run the dust ring down close to the end of the piston shaft. Is this normal? Should I put more pressure in the shock? What happens if I ever go off a 3' drop?

Also, any suggestions on where to order the yellow spring for the Vanilla fork and any suggestions for a good replacement to the downhill tires that came stock on the bike? (Ride in Northwest mud mostly.)

All in all I am pretty amazed with the bike, I am much faster, cleaner and confident than on my FSR XC. Any help getting her dialed in from fellow Clydes would be greatly appreciated!

Yeti's recommendations

Dont know if you saw on their website or not, but they have suggestions for shock set-up. For a firm ride they say go with 25% sag, and have listed 220psi for a rider of 210 lbs. If you want a plush ride, they say go with 30-35% sag. 30% equals .600 inches of sag on the shock, 35% equals .700 inches. Just for reference 20% equals .400, 25% equals .500. Hope this helps.
