Stock for 01 was .46 and 5.4, I don't know about 02's. My weight is 210 and Race Tech recommed .48 and 5.4 for me. Works good for my level, I'am just starting to jump doubles. Sometimes the fork feel a little hard on the bottom even with gold valves and .48's.

if you go to race-tech web site, click on spring search. it asks weight, type of riding,skill level, etc. to select the correct spring rate. very helpful site. i have three bikes that have race tech suspension. they carry their own springs, and also eibach springs. good luck www.race-tech.com
