1994 XR600r . How much shock pressure. I think factory manual says 175. The guy that rebuilt it says he usually puts in 125 but put 150 in mine . I'm about 300 lb rider, would that 25 extra lbs make a difference ? Without going to a custom spring , I think my spring rate is 12.5. Or could seals hold 200lbs and give me a little more boost ?

Do you think it would be advantagous in my situation for the 200 lbs ?

I talked to Bob Bell from Precision Concepts and he uses 180.
