Need advice on spring selection

Recommended Posts

I have an '04 KLX125, but I am putting a CR85 rear shock on it. I don't now what spring rate I should buy.

My riding conditions are a combination of woods and moderatly deep sand. Some of the woods sections have extremely long sections of woops, that are deep. I ride moderatly fast on everything.

I weigh 155 lb, and the bike is 180lb.

I don't want motorcross stiff, more along the lines of offroad.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks!

wait til you get the shock on the bike and check you static sag, there are other factors to consider when swapping parts from one brand and bike to another more so with suspension.

Linkage leverage ratio, eye to eye shock length, shock travel length, valving set up, bike weight difference just to mention a few.
