    You need to get the correct amount of sag (approx 30%) when sat on the bike in your riding clobber & in the riding position.

    The manuals should have a rough guide to start from based on your weight, then fettle the pressure from there to get ~30% sag.

    it also depends on what forks/shocks you have and then what the bike is and its use.

    but set the sag and then tune.
