Help all,

My ML has just arrived - loooooooooong story but an 06 large ML which was built up at factory for a customer who cancelled so their loss was my gain.
Anyway has arrived with 07 Talas 32 and RP23 but NO MANUALS !!:madman:
Apparently my contact still has em in the states and will send them out soon.
Im itching to ride so need help with pressures etc
Weight 190 lb what pressures are you all using ??

New Kiwi ML rider :thumbsup:

For the RP23, I would say 160 - 165psi. I think we came up with an 85% of rider weight for the 23. As far as the Talas, I'm really not sure. Never ridden a Fox fork.

I would say go with whatever gives you 25% sag, front and back.... easy peasy.

Mike a new kiwi ML rider. Where you based? Dam ya make me miss home...

Have no clue about the Talas 32, but on the RP23, have a play, I am around 10 lb's lighter, I have around 150 in the shock, but have a play, would start at around 170 then go from there............Go here and download the manual for the fork and shock http://www.foxracingshox.com/fox_tech_center/index.htm

Best of luck, we need pics of my home terrain buddy
