I like it a little more plush, so I set it at 30% in the rear and 25% in the front. Messes up the geometry a bit for climbing, but it's manageable. For longer climbs, I just turn on the ProPedal.

I have to run a little higher in the rear than recommended to get between 25-30%. Could be that the gauge is a bit off though. 190 lbs full geared up, running at 205 psi.

I just put a few extra psi. in mine the other day to reduce the sag to about 20-25%, and I don't like it. I'm going back closer to 30% using 165psi for 170lb rider.

Running 20% sag RP-23 DRCV rear shock I found that my 9.8 handles better with a firm setting 25-30 % the bike seems to plush and slow but all in preference though and depends on what type of riding you do as well.. For the front shock 25% sag.

I run 25% in the rear - but I have never been able to get full travel out on the Fox forks no matter what SAG I run
