I've had my suspension revalved and sprung by a very reputable tuner in UK. I was just curios of other persons spring rates......
Basically I'm 78 kg with out gear, the bike has now been fitted with lighter springs front and rear, .48nm on the rear, in which my sag is set well, 28mm and 100mm. And the front they have put in 4.3nm, oil level 340cc. The shock also has a 3mm lowering spacer.
Anyways, just spoke to/read various articles, and they all recommend stiffer fork springs.........
The rates I have seem a little low, I'm an int/exp rider, the bike feels to be ok, was pretty soft on the front end, I've added 10mm, which has helped the bottoming out.
Just after some feedback really. Thanks.

Rich bing- spacer is inside shock, 3 mm to lower the back end, linkage is totally standard.

Yes it's stock spring seats.
I'm now going to get the bike set up completely stock, valving,spring rates etc and start again I think as I'm not convinced on this set up atall.

OK. I just now more people use the link for handling and balancing the bike. I just don't that many that use a shock spacer.
