how can you tell which springs are in the fork or shock?

The rear shock spring is generally marked on one of the coils for an aftermarket spring. The spring rate tool is your best option. Even a spring that is marked as one rate may actually be one to two rates different than marked.

Your Honda manual DOES have the stock, softer, and stiffer springs for your bike. For both fork and shock. Re-read, carefully.
I just checked my manual, it doesn't have that explanation at the beginning or the end of the chapter/section. Does your manual cover the '06 250r?
