Not necessarily. Shocks have such a small volume of air that when you attach the pump a significant percentage is used to fill the hose. Did you cycle the suspension before you set the sag? Part of it could simply have been sticky seals which you have since freed up when you bounced the bike. Reset and try again, basing your test on sag rather than pressure.Posted 3 years ago
I got a used rt3 yesterday to replace an ario shock. I fitted it yesterday , pumped it up to 250psi (14.5 stone) sag around 10-15%. Once sat on bike again i cycled the suspension up and down for a bit, rechecked the sag again and it changed to 25-30%??. So i put my pump on and the pressure read 225psi. Do i have a likely problem here?Posted 3 years ago
Just to add ….i went to cannock yesterday had 260psi i shock still the same 30% sag !!??. Rode three loops switching the lever around from max to mid etc that seems ok. Checked the shock after riding pressure was 240 psi. The shock only used about 60% travel whole ride and the shaft had a small amount of oil built up on it. So i wonder why sag is too much or not very adjustable but the shock doesnt use all its travel????Posted 3 years ago
