Manitou Skareb Super PSI?

I picked up a used bike. It has a 03 Manitou Skareb Super fork. I am trying to determine some PSI guidelines for the front fork air pressure. The Maintou site has the 03 users guide but it does not provide pressure recommendations, I emailed them but no answer.

Thanks

Factory settings are barely important. Start small and work your way up using a zip tie as your guide. Sag is the important issue.

Reread the '03 online owner's manual PAGE 7 and you will answer your own question:

http://www.manitoumtb.com/manual_dow....pdf&t=Manuals

Left column, subnote on the "Ride Kits" chart says: "* Air pressure setting should equal 75% of body weight." and then tells you up above how to fine-tune the sag for you.
