Rear Spring 'spring rate' question

Recommended Posts

Race Tech says a 220 lb rider (me) needs a spring rate of 5.78 kg/mm.

They say pick the closest spring they sell. So, would I buy-

SRSP 672757 RT SHK SPR 66.9x64x267mm 5.7kg

or go up to

SRSP 672760 RT SHK SPR 66.9x64x267mm 6.0kg

??? Thanks.

Do you plan on gaining weight in the winter?

Go with the 5.7 if you don't ride agressively. The faster and harder you ride, the more spring rate you need. If you ride hard, the go with the 6.
