calm down fella, im not a pro hear, now lets try this again, i dont have money right now, can i tighten the hell out of my spring with a spanner wrench to help or something else, with out purchasing a new spring. but in the future i will buy one.
Yeah, you can tighten it down but then you are not going to get the proper function from the spring. It will be wound too tight and not handle properly.
Sorry for the snap. I just get aggravated when people don't read the previous parts of the thread so that they can follow previous advice.

Hey Conan 'Dale. Did you modify the stock suspension or go with some after market goodies?
I did not modify anything. I simply raised the height of my rear spring which helped with the sag and seat height. It also stiffened the suspension up some. The bike is new to me so I've only been around the property a couple times but I did notice a difference and liked it. I suspect after this riding season I will look to have the whole suspension revalved w/ a stiffer spring. I am happy with it even if I don't change anything

He's going to need heavier springs, for sure. If you go to www.racetech.com you can see the recommended spring weight for his size and the style of riding he intends to do. The stock spring is set up for a 180 pound rider. Race sag should be set for the best performance from the bike.
It looks like he would benefit from the "Type 2" valves
