i'd like to R&D that one! i found a 6.6 from too tech racing in cali. i run .52's in the front with 7.5 wt instead of 5, subtanks really help you keep the oil level high to resist bottoming while retaining plushness. you'll more than likely want to go to yz valving,even for offroad its a little trickier for your tuner but once you get it straight its great. good heavy tires w/UHD tubes are a must also.
I think the factories need to start a new like of "Husky" bikes that have a little more power and super stiff suspension for us big guys. Imagine a WR500 BigBoy Edition! "I'm not fat....I'm just big bonned!"

0.526kg/mm front springs and 6.4kg/mm rear spring for your weight.
I have 0.50 fronts and 6.0 rear and it has made the world of difference to the bike and my riding has improved heaps.
The shock valving seems fine, but I really feel the forks valving is absolute crap, probably good for a 50kg rider.
I recomend you get a tuner to set up your suspension properly, with revalving as well as the heavier springs.
