If you mean the "ICS", or free piston spring in the damper cartridge chamber, I believe they are 2.0 kg/mm.

I switched mine for 1.3's, and my son's for 1.7's, along with drilling the free piston and changing over to 251.VM2.K5 Suspension fluid from Dave Johnson at Smart Performance. I weigh 185, and my son, who is somewhat faster, weighs 190. The results have been somewhat amazing.

My review:

The free piston modification:

...and one reason you might want to do it:
