I'd start with what your owners manual says and adjust on preference from there. If you are a bigger rider (200+) adjust up 5-10psi to start with. Some changes with the air chamber/negative spring were made on these compared to previous generations so the old proclimb data probably won't be optimal anymore. Curious to see what others are finding with these in the field compared to past models.

I agree and am curious as well. I’m new to these shocks. I suppose there’s only the one pressure chamber to be able to adjust the other is nitrogen? Correct me if I’m wrong

Picked up my sled today, dealer told me they set them up to Cats specs, and that typically they are set way to high unless you are 200+ Also Typically to much pressure in front shocks

You also have to decide if you want them to ride better on the trail, or handle better in the deep snow. They are two different spring setups for those situations.

Thumbs up

I assume the switch only controls the damping by-pass. Would be nice to know what people are starting and ending up with.
200 lbs w/gear I'm starting with:
FS-70 lbs (85 lbs dealer settings) (60 lbs on the ER)
Position 3 Trail
Position 1 MTN

Rear no change from dealer settings
RTF - 35lbs (55lbs on the ER)
Position 2

RTS - 150 (150 lbs on the ER)
Position 2

Haha I have been waiting for this thread to start. Anyway we can make it a sticky so it stays at the top of the thread?
It's Going to be a great on going topic throughout the season as we get seat time on this suspension and as the conditions change.

Maybe post your riding area, conditions and what kind of riding you were doing so we have an idea of what setups might work in what conditions.
