    I have 92' wing and was just curious, what rear shock pressure does everyone
    generally use??? 20# 30# 35#??? One rider or 2 riders???

    I know it may just be a personal thing but just looking for some opinions
    and thought that this would be the place to do that.

    Please don't make me wrong.

    That'll give plenty of lift, then.

    I tend to pump it up until it meets resistance, iyswim. Just to take
    up the slack, or sag, or whatever it's called.

    The Progressive manual suggests doing this at your typical load
    levels[1], and making a note.

    I tend to run mine at around 30, solo, and 45-50 psi with the missus
    aboard. If I remeber to change it, that is.

    Of course, if you'd bought an 1800, you could have stuck it in the
    suspension memory, and had done with it.

    [1] Solo, pillion, pillion with luggage, etc.

    Max is 57psi, according to the manual.

    I have 92' wing
    That would depend on how many degrees of flaps that I drop and how many
    RPM's on the prop. :) :)

    I guess it was a funny typo.......................for some.
