My friend is looking for a stronger spring for his WR. He is a heavier man weighing almost 300LBS. Does yamaha offer one from factory? Thanks!

I'm 250lbs without gear and run the spring rates I suggested earlier on my YZs and WRs. These spring rates work for my weight and the agressive type of riding I do (don't race anymore).
At 300lbs without gear these springs would be inadequate at a raceish type pace but are readily available and would make for a much nicer trail riding experience than the stock springs. I should have asked how the bike will be used...I assumed at a nice trail pace.
Cannon race craft can set you up with stiffer springs if so desired but I would definitely inquire with a well known suspension tuner beforehand. Keep in mind that no matter how good the intentions, some suspensiion tuners actually make things worse.
