stock 2008 450 spring rates

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.

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.
