The sag is very important and I always ask my suspension guy where to start and see how it rides. The beginning of this year I forgot to set the sag and when my son was riding our rough track the rear end was swapping back and forth and that was 10mm off. My son is a local A racer and I believe his is set at 100mm.

Best thing to do is try it, I would start at one setting say 100mm, ride it then try 105 and 110 and see what best fits u. I have found that the review's are a good starting point but always try a couple different also to find what best suits u.

Span is 104-108mm, rider preference. You are pretty much target weight. So i would set it to 106mm and adjust front from there.

2016 recommended was 110, they changed it to 105 for 2017.

Since there are airforks on 17, you might get away with 110mm and more but not an optimal setup to soften front because of a too soft set rear.

I have a 2016 and like 105-106 the best.

General idea, the lower number 100-106 will give you more front end feel but maybe less stability at high speed. Turn fast and sharp.

107-110 is better for sand tracks, getting weight off the front, more sitting low in the backend and better high speed stability.

The sag figures only work if the bike is correctly sprung for your weight.
