What are stock spring rates in 01 ADV?

I need to upgrade as currently they are too soft. problem is My PARTS manual says 4,8 N\mm... but my OWNERS manual lists them at 4,4 N\mm. Unlike the rear spring the front are not stamped.Now I do not how far to up the spring rate. Any insight would be appreciated.Thanks in advance.

I think they've been using .46Kg per mm... but as findin' out specific stuff about KTMs is soooooo easy.

I don't recall seing any reference to them using .48s as stock, so .44, .46... one of those is the most likely.

There is a chart that someone posted in thumpers that I can't seem to find... but it's a KTM generalized reference to spring rates for the application... Meat or somebody, you know where that is?

Heya Creeper,

there has been a bunch of talk on this that I have seen... not sure about the nice chart. Did some poking about and didn't find it yet. Here are some threads that I will likely index:

This one ain't bad:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=72205

This one is more about SAG really, and folks who don't understand their owner's manual
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11867

Hopefully someone will remember where the chart is or other threads!

White Brothers has a chart here:
http://www.motortoysdirect.com/04catalog/Suspension.pdf
but it ain't the one...

White Power's webpage has a bunch of cool stuff:

cartridges...

They have a table:

but no KTM?

Race Tech, in their rate calculator, recommends a spring rate of .48kg/mm for a 200lb. rider without gear, for a 2003 640 Adv. R.

This is bizzare, when I type in my weight, style age etc., and im 84kg racetech calculator tells me to get a .55 or the closest one which is .54
It sounds a little over the top? No?
