Right, posted this in the Suspension fourum at least 10 minutes ago but still no reply :D

I have just changed to full suss for the new season. My race bike is a KTM Score Prestige with a DT XR180 shock. I have followed the 25% sag rule but it seems to be going through a lot of travel. It doent bob when Im pedaling but it does seem a bit soft at times.

Is this something I just need to get used to? Would an RP23 be more tuneable in relation to sag/pressure?

Sag settings are only suggestions , try running slightly less sag .

Agreed, try running less sag, more pressure. However, I would go with the Fox RPL before I would consider the RP23. JMO.

Good luck.

DT shocks have virtually no compression damping, making for a rather poor shock. Go with the RP23 (or RPL if you must have absolute lock out)

DT shock

Right, compression damping. That makes sense. Have any of you used a Push tuned Fox shock? Is it worth the money?
