Hello all,
Do you ETSX owners increase the PSI in your shock when switching from 4” to 4.5”? My wife went to 4.5” in her last ride (pretty content with 4” over the last season), and noticed a little more pedal bob, although sag seemed ok.

Set psi/sag for 4.0 travel. Switching to 4.5 travel will increase sag which is acceptable
perhaps preferable. However you will have to increase rebound damping a couple of
clicks due to the increased leverage ratio. How many requires a little trial and error.
