I would start with the 2x1.6 EU front and 2x1.7 EU rear. If there are any large jumps, try 3x1.4 EU rear.

cool. My daughters B6D came with one of your rear towers, I am thinking it may need a matching front

saw you advocated a b6 using the 1.4 3 hole for the rear. If i try this, since they are already in, would you reduce or increase the rear oil weight? How much? Ex: if running 30/27.5 with a 1.6 1.7? thx!!

Stay with 30/27.5. With cooler temps, 30/27.5 is what oils I would start with.

8 Hole Low Pack would be good place to start.

Bought a set of euro 1.6 pistons from amain to try out at my local carpet track. First race on them and the black plastic piece fell apart . I found pieces floating inside the shock and it was locking up.I wonder if these are the wrong ones for the b6 as my yokomo ones work great with the e-clip.
