I have a 01 YZ426F and have some suspention questions. I weigh between 185 and 200 all year around and was wondering what PROGRESSIVE spring rate I need. Also do I need to go with the standard gold valves or should I go with the heavy duty? I plan on racing the bike periocally on supercross/ motocross tracs. Thanks for any input you guys are always knowledgeable.

Check this link out: http://www.mx-tech.com/

They have a spring generator on there where you can enter your weight, riding style, etc. and it will calculate suggested spring rates.

As far as valving is concerned I can't make a recommendation.
