replace rear spring with Hyperpro - normal or big tank spring?

So I asked the shop to replace the rear shock spring with the Hyperpro product.
But instead of the normal spring they put in the "big tank" version, which is meant for bikes with the Touratech tank (which I don't have on my bike).

I only recognised this mistake after I left the shop, and now over the weekend I wont get a reply anyway.

So I wonder what to do, replace with normal Hyperpro spring, or leave the big tank spring in?

The BMW factory setup is for a 85 kg rider. I am 100 kg+.

Couldn't find anything on the interwebs, but if the standard Hyperpro is also meant for that weight of a rider, the big tank spring could be more appropriate for my weight?

Any advice would be appreciated

a gallon of gas weighs roughly 6.25 pounds and the Touratech adds 5.2 gallons, 5.2 x 6.25=32.5 then divided by 2.2 to convert ti kgs = 14.77 kilos.

I'd leave it alone

Yes, leave it. Will be a bonus when you load up for a over nighter.
