Just curious if any 230 lb. riders have used 0.50 Kg front and 11.0 Kg rear springs on their XR650 and found if the suspension was too stiff or just right? Both my brother-in-law and I have 2002 XR650's and ride desert. I weigh 200 lbs. (215-220 lbs. with gear). Rob Barnum setup my suspension with 0.45 and 10.0 springs, 5 wt. oil, and revalved according. It feels great. Maybe just a bit soft at times, but too difficult to tell. My brother-in-law weighs 230 lbs. (245-250 lbs. with gear). His suspension is stock. I offered to respring his bike and change the fork oil to 2.5 wt. as I've read many positive posts about using 2.5 wt. fork oil. I called Lindemann Engineering to order the springs since I've seen many positive posts regarding Lindemann Engineering. Based on a 230 lb. rider, they sold me 0.50 front springs and a 11.0 rear spring. I said "well....OK, I guess". Doesn't 0.50 springs sound a bit stiff for the front? I thought they would have suggested 0.47's. I asked them about 0.47's and they said they're out of stock (hmmm). They said they've been selling 0.50 springs to the guys with CRF450's and they thought they should work well on a XR650.
