Hi all!
Just slapped on a new Fox RP3 shock on my 03 Blur after the stock AVA's died.
Does anyone out there know the perfect pressure settings for the shock? I'm 190lbs and by pumping the pressure to 190psi using the old AVA shock pressure recommendation, the rear seems to be in rigor mortis.
I've dropped it down to 130psi and still the rear isn't as plush as before.
:confused:

numerous threads about this....... I have an RP3(2.0" stroke) and the manual says to set the sag at a 1/2". If your RP3 is the 2.0" stroke, which I am pretty sure it is for the Blur, the sag is what you measure and it should be around a 1/2". Do not use the old AVA pressure recommendations for the RP3.
