If you are installing your shock on a bike for which the shock is not original equipment:
There may be a small amount of air sleeve lubricant residue on the body. This is normal. If this residual air sleeve lubricant is not present, this is an indication that the air sleeve should be re-lubricated. Some other things to consider for all shock models:
Note: Do not use any solvents or de-greasers, as these products can damage the shock's exterior finish or its anodized parts.
Do not spray water directly on the seal/shock body junction. Do not use a high pressure washer on your shock.
To set sag:
25 % Sag
Rebound controls the rate at which your shock returns after it has been compressed. The proper rebound setting is a personal preference, and changes with rider weight, riding style and conditions. A rule of thumb is that rebound should be as fast as possible without kicking back and pushing the rider off the saddle.
The rebound knob has 8-10 clicks of adjustment.
For slower rebound, turn the red adjuster knob clockwise.
For faster rebound, turn the red adjuster knob counter-clockwise.
The ProPedal lever allows for on-the-fly ProPedal adjustment. ProPedal damping reduces pedal-induced suspension bob. The two ProPedal lever settings are:
Use each setting to adjust the shock for different riding conditions and situations. For example, use PROPEDAL for riding to the top of the mountain, and then switch to OPEN for the descent.
To determine which ProPedal position is better for your condition and situation, pedal the bicycle and monitor the shock movement. Switch between positions and select the one that reduces suspension movement most effectively while providing the desired amount of bump absorption.
The 3-position ProPedal knob allows you to adjust ProPedal firmness when the ProPedal lever is in the PROPEDAL position. The ProPedal knob only changes damping when the ProPedal lever is in the PROPEDAL position.
The ProPedal knob settings are denoted by the numbers etched onto the ProPedal knob. The three ProPedal knob settings are:
To adjust the ProPedal knob:
CAUTION: For safety reasons, the ProPedal knob setting should only be changed when you're not riding the bicycle.
