im right at 195 pounds and the sag on my DS is 2” in the rear. Is that about right? I wish it were more for my short legs , but ride quality is more important

I think sag must be 1/3 of the suspension travel. If the travel is 200mm then 1/3 is about 66.6mm which is over 2 inches. If it is 30% then it should be 60mm.also more than 2 inches.

How do you accurately measure it especially as it is up + down?
You place the bike on a rear stand then you lift the rear fender and while is lifted you measure with a tape the distance between rear axle and the passenger handle. Then you sit on the bike and someone else measures the distance between the rear axle and the same spot. Now the distance must be shorter and it should be shorter by 6 cm or 6,66. If it is more or less you adjust the preload accordingly.

While still leaving a bit (10mm or so) of static sag.

That’s the difference between fully extended, and the bike sitting on its own weight.
