Spring Rates for a 220 pound motocross rider

6 posts in this topic

I just picked up a 02 426, the first thing I did was order some Race tech fork and shock springs for it, I asked the mechanic what stiffnes rate he reccomended and for the rear he reccomended a 5.8 kg/mm. I figured he knew what he was talking about but now I am getting a little worried that it will be too stiff. I ride at the track all the time and I ride resonably fast.

Are any of you 200 pound plus guys running a 5.8 kg/mm spring?

I just bought a new YZ426 01' and weight around 215lbs-

What type of ajustments would you guys recommend for front and rear?

What is the ideal weight limit for this bike?

I assume you guys have adjusted the spring compression on your bikes, how many complete turns have you done in order to stiffin'?

Do I need to replace parts also?

I'm only a free rider and not a competative racer-
