    What should I set the PSI on the Fox rear air shock to for 150 lb. person?

    There is a free updated fox float rear shock available for your sled if you have the single shot rear suspension, it is way more adjustable and gives you a better ride contact your dealer, for now on your stock shock start out at 170psi and try riding it moving the pressure up or down to suit your weight and riding style it takes abit to dial it in, hope this helps

    Does this apply to 2016 Vector single shot suspension also? The free updated shock?

    My understanding is on the 2016 models if you are not happy with the ride then your dealer should be able to talk to his rep and do something for you, there are some that have 2016 models that Yamaha replaced with the updated shock. hope this helps
