Default KX 80 SAG

     

My 12 yr old son , 80 pounds just got a 2000 kx 80,need to set the sag. Question is the 100mm setting a good starting point for someone his size ? I thought I read somewhere that with this particular bike that 95 mm was a better starting point, I don't have the owners guide,any assistance would help

Willets,

Between 75mm and 85 for the KX 80............. I believe the kx 85 was between 75 and 95mm
MX---------------------- 80mm
Harescrambles------ 85mm

Generally speaking sag should be 1/3rd of total suspension travel.

so as suspension nut said.

Static sag should be the correct amount, 80lbs is about the target weight for that bike.
