my problem is that i have RP3 on Truth, and i put 150# in it... Truth leverage is 2:1

i believe Id leverage is 3:1 - am i wrong?

following this logic, the pressure in RP3 on Id should be over 200# - that seems to be very high...

:confused: :confused: :confused:

right now to get the proper sag i need to put 190# in... kinda high compared to other people...

The Id's leverage ratio averages 2.5:1 with a 2" stroke shock and 2.67:1 with a 2.25" stroke shock.

RP3 is 2" stroke

so the leverate ratio is 2.5:1

so if i use 150# on my Truth (2004MY), what should be starting point for the Id, that maks sense... it has to be more than 150# - right???

O., I was at slightly over 155 PSI, give or take a few, thats the last thing I write down about it, I set it, then gave it a tweak on a ride. Just found the piece of card I wrote it on in the toolbox.

clarification

I weight 215# and I ran 165 psi with a '05 Float R.
we were talkinga about the leverage ratio of the frame (rocker)...

obviously, more leverage would require more pressure if everything else is the same...

Id has higher rocker leverage ratio than Truth...

has nothing to do with shocks or shock strokes...
