    What do you think of my rear shock sag? Completely stock.

    255mm total travel

    static sag: 36mm. (36/255*100= 14,1%)

    Race sag: 86mm. (86/255*100= 33,7%)

    should I do something? Wants the bike set up for Dakar Rally like driving. But without the sand...:wings

    You should set the rear for 66.6 mm of sag then fine tune from there. See if you get better balance with the front.

    Sag is 1/3 of suspension travel on any bike. Static sag is the amount the bike sags under it's own weight. Check your owner's manual for amount of bike's travel.
