New springs for my BRP

I am going to change my fork springs and my rear shock spring. I am 6'3'' and weigh about 260. I was wondering if I should get them for my weight or a little softer. I don't want my suspension too stiff, but it needs to handle my weight also. I don't race the bike, but I ride in the high desert in Ca. where we ride pretty fast. I also cruise with my kids alot. My 650r has 50 miles on it and I love it, but the suspension has to be done. What brand of springs should I get? I need something that wont beat me to death when I am cruising and something to handle a little abuse. Thaks.

eibach .48--about $100. Add some 5 wt oil about 90mm from the top when fully compressed. race tech would be a second choice for various reasons...

yes thats slightly light for your weight--but you arent doing any triples and desert bikes need lighter springs...unless you are a sand woop king.

I went through Precision Concepts and picked up Eibach springs for the pig.

Couldn't be happier :applause:

Precision Concepts or ESP are top quality shops. Pay the extra money and let the pros handle your suspension. After all it's about the most important thing on a offroad bike.

Plus after it's done they can help you fine tune it. Give them a try you won't be dissapointed.
