From what ive been told by my LBS for Fox you put in the same psi as your weight to start then add or subtract psi as needed. I was told safe pressure range is between 20 and 300 psi YMMV.

put 125 in the piggyback. now as a starting psi in the main can use your weight and add or subtract from there until you get 20-30% sag. now bump up or down the air pressure in the piggyback to set your bottom out resistance. dont go too far below 125 as that is the minimum recomended pressure. i have 120 in there but 160 pounds is my fighting weight. its a pain to set up but overall a pretty nice shock.

thanks, how do put air in the "piggy back" i only see the valve for the main chamber comming off at an angle the same way as on the float r shock (i had on my last bike)...

PS i really like the VERY adjustable red rebound spinner

the piggyback should have the valve right on the end of it. as for the rebound i like mine in the middle, a bit on the slow side.
