Anyone know what the target weight is for the stock springs? That race tech site says 195 lbs. I weight around 215 and I couldn't get my sag at all close with the stock rear spring.

Depends on what you use it for. Stock springs should be good for from 175-190 for aggressive MX, or up to 200 or so for off-road. What are your sag numbers?

I have them at home and unfortunately I'm at work but I spent some time trying to get it dialed and could not get both the static sag and sag with me sitting on it in the range recommended by MXA. I was trying to get the sag with me on it at 100mm and I think the closest to that I was able to get was around 70mm and that threw the static sag way off. I'm actually about to go pick up the bike in just a few minutes from my local Pro Action rep who put new springs on it for my weight.
