Recommended sag at the shock is 15-18 mm. This equates to 28-33% sag. This link does not require excess amounts of sag to achieve small bump sensitivity. Please set your sag at around 16 mm at the shock and let the link do its work. The spring rates below should get you close to the right sag but you might have to deviate from them here and there.
|Rider Weight||Spring Rate||Preload|
|120 lbs (54.4 kg)||450||1 turn|
|140 lbs (63.5 kg)||500||1 turn|
|160 lbs (72.6 kg)||550||1 turn|
|180 lbs (81.8 kg)||625||1 turn|
|200 lbs (90.7 kg)||675||1 turn|
|220 lbs (99.8 kg)||725||1 turn|
*All spring rates are calculated for 30% sag assuming a 64% rear weight bias.
