That is ready to ride -
Also, where are you buying these springs?
Thanks

I weigh the same as you do. I talked to a guy who runs a suspension mod business, asking about spring rates. He recommended an 11 kg/mm shock spring, and .47 kg/mm fork springs. Eibach springs are usually a little cheaper than Race Tech.

I haven't gotten the springs yet, but I plan on getting them in a couple weeks.

No problem. I just ordered my springs yesterday, so hopefully I'll have them in, ready to test out by next weekend.

I'm 6'5 @ 255 and also went with the Eibach .47kg + 11kg springs and they work nicely for me.

Einbach makes the springs for most of the companys out there. When you order a Racetech spring it is an Einbach.

I thought RaceTech springs were from SpringMaker and not Eibach. A friend of mine ordered front springs for his XR and they were not full length springs like my Eibachs were and he had to use the included spacers to make up the difference in length.
