It would also be a good idea for you to contact Race Tech directly, I have heard that on occasion the spring calculator is off a little. I'm not sure which models or years.
By the way, the owners manual and the Race Tech site say that the 1998 WR is setup for a 160 pound rider. Soemthing to consider.

The race tech spring guide is a start but it really is no substitute for a good suspension tuner.
I would start by calling a few desert suspension experts. I race dez here in So. Cal and out here ESP, ACME, ESR, and a couple of others really know there dez stuff as well as what it takes to get different types of bikes to work for your weight, bike, skill level, and just general bike set up. I am sure you have some guys up in your area that are knowledgeable about your area. Start by calling each of them and see what they would do to your bike to get it to work for you. Then make your choice as to what to do.
