Just be sure to tell the susp guy what you really want out of the bike. If he's a reputable tuner you won't be disappointed.

If your forks transfer hits very sharply and you rarely if ever bottom them then they are setup stiff. You may want to try reducing the oil level and adjusting the compression damping too.

.42kg/mm fork springs will work for your weight, we round up for fork springs (usually), and the RT 41.5kg/mm springs would be .42kg/mm.
The MX-TECH spring guide is figured with rider geared up.
As AK-Thumper said,
A stock YZ250 has .43 fork springs which are way closer to what you need than your .46 fork springs, and if you can find some one to swap it might save you some cash.
The stock rear spring of 5.0kg/mm is good for your weight.
