Heaviest available XR600 fork springs?

Racetech website says I need .516 kg/mm springs (86 XR600R w/ 92 forks, 280lb rider; general trail riding), but the heaviest they carry is .46 and Eibach has .47 whereas the stock is .42. Progressive doesn't seem to rate theirs.

Does anyone make heavier springs? Are heavier (>.47) springs really needed?

Thanks.

theres a banner on here for MXtech may want to give them a call.

Just get the heaviest ones you can. If that's not enough run a couple PSI or so of air pressure in them. That's what the schrader valve caps are for.

You can always cut them. Removing coils ups the rate. You replace what was cut with a spacer. Due to coil bind only a few inches can be removed, but I think that .51 may be achievable.
