I know a lot of guys on the 450 forum have stated that they changed fork & shock springs because they are heavy. I'm at the opposite range of the spectrum and weigh 150 without riding gear. I had my bike mechanic help me with suspension setup: with stock settings the rear static sag was under minimum at 20 mm and rider sag was 80 mm. By removing a lot of pre-load (rear shock) we were able to get 99 mm rider sag, using a desirable range of 95-105. We looked at fork sag as well, I don't remember the numbers, but it was a bit stiff. Stock suspension on most enduro bikes is set for a weight range of 70-85 kg, and I'm 68 kg. We called RaceTech and they said I could go one spring-rate softer front and rear - key word is could. I'm too close to call one way or the other. I don't race and I ride at a moderate pace, but do get into terrain that requires good suspension travel. I'd like the bike to be set up right, so my question is--- Since this is a borderline case, is it worth going to a lighter spring rate in order to assure good suspension setup?
