yes, i did a search, Can you please give me the stock spring rates? I thought the shock was 5.3 but the new Motocross Action mag says 5.5? I believe the forks are 4.7's?

thanks

Do you have a manual? The rates are listed.

The '08 uses a heavier rear spring because of changes to the linkage rate.

Download a manual here:

It won't be printable, but once they become available on the Euro site, you can update.

Race Tech is wrong, if in fact they list a 5.3 as the OEM rate for the '08. Or, maybe Yamaha is, you think? The manual says 5.5 kg/mm. It calls for .469 kg/mm in front, so you may as well say .47.
