anyone run the rock shox vivid coil r2c on their glory, and know what their settings are?

i currently have the kage and am upgrading to the vivid coil r2c. I am running 550lb spring but have no idea on what settings to start off with. i.e compression, end stroke rebound and begining stroke rebound.

any of you guys know what you are running? how many clicks out from fully counter clockwise for each of the above?

there is not much help online for recent versions of the shock.

cheers

let me know how you go once its on mate, i have no doubt you will be impressed, SAR are a great company to deal with and make a excellent product.
thanks for recommending SAR springs. Bought it a while ago but not had much chance to ride bike. First of all they delivered very quickly. The spring is noticeably lighter then the stock fox steel spring. It feels awesome and totally transformed my bike. Just need some more time on bike to get my settings dialed in Smile

genuinely feels awesome. A guy who rides my local downhill park has same model glory with the same rate fox sls coil and the sar spring feels better imo and his. The bike just seems to track ground nicer and feels more planted. Even after alot of adjustments been made to shock on the sls equipped bike it just couldn't touch my bike. Not sure why this is but I love this sar spring.

Gian Glory 27.5 0 on 26 wheels

So, I build up a bike on 26" wheels.
BB is slightly lower than on my old Sunday, but all is OK. Glory is more stable on rough surfaces and it feels good.
Build timelapse, if somebody interested:
