Fox shock settings

Had Fox shock fitted this week. Didn't get any kind of manual with it.
Have set it to 8 clicks from hard and will experiment from there.
What settings have other users tried and which is best

Thatís exactly where I am - as per the manual IIRC.
Donít feel the need to change it as itís working great.
I weigh around ~96kg without gear.

I need to check to see what mines set to at the moment... apparently my dealer simply told the techís... ďheís a big ladĒ lol. Well I guess at 110 Kgs dry thatís a fair assessment!

I have to say that Iím pretty happy with the shock what ever setting itís currently on. It gives a nice smooth ride on all but the worst of potholes but then you tend to swerve most of them. I will have a peek though if so no other reason than to be curious.

Turned mine all the way up then backed it off one click and it handles the A2/202 with no issues.

Okay, I'm completely confused. (It doesn't take much to confuse me.) Turning the adjustment knob clockwise (screwing it in) makes the shock harder or softer???

Turn it clockwise until you can’t turn turn the dial anymore. That is the “stiffest” rebound setting. Now back it off as many clicks as you need.
Mine is backed off (anti clockwise turns) 8 clicks.

I'm about 250lbs and I originally started with mine backed off 4 clicks from the firmest setting but it felt a bit too harsh so am now running 6 clicks off firm so probably about half way. Pretty happy with it so far but still experimenting.

Thanks so much! That's just backwards from what I understood the serviceman to say. So on the ride home I kept turning the adjustment clockwise. No wonder I was busting my butt by the time I got home.
