I'm with Snowman once again... Does anyone know or can anyone point to spring specifications for this bike? I don't know much about suspension setups so appologies if my ignornace is showing... To get a bike set up PROPERLY for a 240 pounder, probably for anyone 190-200+ you will need new springs. As for what springs it depends mostly on your weight but riding style speed will also affect this. Best bet is to get your forks resprung and revalved by a competent shop or do a racetech setup that you install. Whoever does it if they do not have a set of questions for you on your style/speed then they don't know what they are doing, look eleswhere.
