    My cables don't have that chaffing?

    That's a yamaha factory feature

    I've got a cable or two that's very worn. It's usually only a subtle change that needs to happen to minimize it. Some are hard to get to zero, but you can slow the wear to the point that it doesn't really matter.

    If you're pounding whoops in 5th, I'd rake the bike out. But if you care about turn in and don't feel like the front end's too flighty, I wouldn't make too many changes yet.

    Good pointers! I will add some sort of buffer; I donít want to be surprised on the trail

    But the 93mm sag has to do with what the magazines wrote about in 1994. They all know the factory linkage sucks, and without the DeVol linkage the rear rides low and bounces all over the place under load. Their trial and error suggested that you will hate 100mm of sag, but at 93mm it will be better.

    Honestly Iíve never set the sag, and can ride the bike as-is, but I am very curious about how different it is with the different sag and the Devol linkage

    No MX for me, or jumps in 5th...just desert/hard pack trail riding. Maybe 110 sag with some clicker adjustment is all I need

    got it. right, easy enough to test what you like for your conditions. a good rule of thumb for sag settings is 33-34% of total shock travel for offroad / 28-31% MX.

    Whatever point you decide to start at, ride it a bit, then go back to the truck and turn the collar 3 turns. If you start at 110, tighten the preload by 3 and test. That should give you a better idea if you're in the right ballpark, and help develop a feel for what you prefer. I'd try to start somewhere around where you were before. If the bike's still apart, paint one of the preload collar's tabs a bright color and it'll be easier than counting tabs while you're hammering away.

    I've found if I'm going in circles with clicker adjustment to tweak turn-in or deflection, it's because I'm trying to 'tune' the geometry with the clickers. In other words, I should be looking at sag and fork height.
