Fox Floats setup?

I recently picked up an ltr with the fox floats evols on them and I realized they were set up for a guy roughly 200lbs. (I'm 150ish). Is it just a simple air adjustment(if there are any online tutorials that would help) or do I have to get them revalved like I would with other shocks. I thought that fox wouldn't need to be revalved just a change in pressure but would I still have to get them revalved? Any imput would be nice, thanks

The fronts you just need to adjust the air pressure, the rear will need to be rebuilt and or need a new spring if its not your weight.

Thanks for the quick reply, is it best to have them set up by fox or could any suspension shop do it. There is a close one nearby that I'm friends with the owner of if that would work

Send the rear shock to fox, I always do that just incase something happens and it could be their fault.

Fronts you just do on your own. Take your time and adjust little by little until you start to feel how the shock responds to what you do to it. One little adjustment in the front can throw the rest of the bike off haha. Gonna take a while to get it down right, but when you do...Theres a reason theyre called the fox "Floats"

The fronts are fully adjustable with the supplied air pump. You may have to send the rear shock to Fox to receive the best ride possible out of the Podium.

I weigh about the same. I set my shocks up with 140# in chamber 1 and 32.5psi in chamber #2 on stock arms.may be a good starting point that you can adjust from.

Thanks for all the input guys. I'm gonna try this thing out at the track tomorrow just to see how it rides. (ive been staring at this thing for a week in my garage just waiting for it to stop raining so I can finally go riding). I figured I'd try it out without messing with anything then maybe do some adjustments while I'm there. This may be a little off topic but I switched from a stock trx450 to this 07' Ltr with hotcam 2 and an aftermarket piston. Am I going to be surprised by the power of this thing or is it just going to be the suspension that I'll be noticing. Once again, I know its a little off topic but I figured I'd might as well ask.

Set your rear sag (as best as possible) and ride height. Then go out and see what it feels like. Its going to feel real big and heavy compared to a stock TRX. The power is smooth and altho it may not feel like it, it scoots pretty good. focus on the suspension for now, see if you can get it set up so you like it. let us know how it turns out.

i have floats on my ltr with hydrodynamic +2 arms and weigh 165 with gear. i run 150psi in #1 and 20psi in #2. if you go to foxs' web site you will be able to save a print the instruction manual (unless it came with it). ultimately the fine tune points are preference. i still adjust my compression and rebound depending on track conditions.
