I found a shock place, its up in the sticky thread for the 225. Its fully adjustable with a resevoir.

You got stock .38kg/mm fork springs and you need .46kg/mm.

I can't find what shock springs you have or need.

If you really love the bike and don't want to move up to a bigger bike, get the suspension set up properly by a tuner. Just adding heavier springs won't solve all your problems. The valving will be very weak and the suspension will be springy with little dampening.

Trust me, been there.

I found this little knob at the bottom of the rear shock today I pretty sure it stiffens/softens up the rear suspension. I played with it but it was just to cold to really test it out

I am also a fat/short guy on a 225. I love the bike and it fits me well but it needs a little more suspension front and back. let me know if you find anything.
