Default 2018 EC300 Front and Rear Stock settings

So seeing as everyone else is lazy and hasn't pulled their forks and shocks apart for my own curiosity I had to do it myself!

KYB Front forks
Compression base valve:
11x0.3 (3)
20x1.7 (base plate)
14x0.3 (6)
16x0.11
18x0.11
20x0.11
22x0.11
24x0.11
26x0.11
28x0.11
30x0.11
32x0.11
21x0.11
32x0.11 (11)
Piston
Check valve
Spring
Collar
Nut

Mid valve: Compression
Stepped washer
8x0.2
Collar
Spring
17x0.3
15x0.3
11x0.3
12x0.11
14x0.11
16x0.11
18x0.11
20x0.11 (4)
Piston (had the usual bleed hole forgot to measure it)
20x0.11 (3)
12x0.11
18x0.11
16x0.11
14x0.11
12x0.11
11x0.11
16x1.5 (base plate)
Nut
(Float was 0.7mm in the above stacks)

KYB Rear Shock:
Compression:
22x0.3
24x0.3
26x0.3
28x0.3
30x0.3
32x0.3
34x0.3
36x0.3
38x0.3
28x0.11
32x0.11
40x0.2 (10)

Rebound:
36x0.2 (7)
28x0.11
36x0.3
34x0.3
32x0.3
30x0.3
28x0.3
26x0.3
25x0.3
24x0.3
23x0.3
26x0.4

Hope this helps some one! I stiffened up the rebound damping on both the shock and forks and softened the compression in the base valve as I was most of the way out on the clickers and mostly in on the rebound. I added a 5.8kg/mm rear spring and some 0.46kg/mm springs up front. Not massive changes as it is pretty good out the box!

Good on ya Nate! I'm about to soften the stacks on both my forks and shock as i have the compression clickers a fair way out.
For my 92kg race weight I'm currently running 0.46 and 0.42 springs with 2.5 wt oil up front with a 5.6 shock spring. Rebound seems to be ok.

Went out for a little blat in the bush this morning at the local, new suspension feels sweet! I am riding a lot quicker but still maintaining the ability to punch over obstacles. It is a little harder to preload the front but it seems to just clip the rocks/logs and sail over. I was well worn out by the end of it though. Bit humid today. The fatty front barely hits the pipe guard now too, only slightly rubs on big drop offs. I would like a bit more rebound on the rear shock though. I?ll sort that out next service.

Hello, do you recommend this setting? I own a Enduro GP and my fork feels "dry" I don't know if you use the word in the EEUU but in the First part it is not sensitive. I feel friction, I don't know if you understand me🙈
Best regards from Spain!!

I have other question. What is the mid valve for? I mean in compression. I would like to try other combinations but I don't know which.
I wrote a post in the Spanish forum, maybe you understand something using the translator.
This is the link:

what sag are you all running on a 2018?
I have a shock 5.6 spring & thought it cornered a little wide so tightened it up to 12mm/102mm. corners way better & still stable at speed.Numbers seem wrong but it works.
