Love to see those pix when you take them.
I weigh 175 lbs and the stock spring rate ( .470 kg/mm) is a little more than what is recommended (0.455 kg/mm)for my weight. I got these numbers from Race Tech's website. Keep in mind, I have already ridden a DR with this shock (using the stock spring). He was previously using the gold valve kit from Race Tech.
