6.0 kg rear should work well for you. Call Racetech for about $100.00 you can change it yourself with no special tools. :)

I am 240. I am running a 5.6 rear and .52 front. I tried the 5.8. With .75" static sag I would only get about 3.5" of race sag. You want 4.0" of race sag (you on the bike and in gear). You will see people usuing spring rates to overcome the stock valving problems. The valving is not to bad but can be much better! Set it up right, spend the money on valving and proper springs. You will be rewarded ten fold. :) ----Mike
