what is a finder?

I still have stock shocks on mine set to full soft....Im 185 and riding solo have never bottomed yet....

Im going to a 12" progressive 412 as I want to lower my bike abit more....be careful how low you go if you ride two up alot or are heavier than average person.

I was just asking as I got my Works shoks on there are 13s
They look great and so far riding fine with one person.
I dont wanna lower the bike any as i alreadt scrap the peg on left side and pipe on the right side. I just recentle raised the pipe up anout 3/8 - 1/2 so ill see if it helps save the pipe some. I have a CFR pipe on it with the bracket to the up side if ya know what i mean.

Don't like speculation, but....I heard the '08s have a stock shock length of 13.5"??? If so, this differs from the '07s....haven't measured mine.

I ran at this setting #1 too, but when I switched to the Metz 260 tire it needed to be stiffer. Running at #3 now, could be #2 but like it tight for canyon riding :) (I am about 185 and ride solo)
