How much shock pressure

1994 XR600r . How much shock pressure. I think factory manual says 175. The guy that rebuilt it says he usually puts in 125 but put 150 in mine . I'm about 300 lb rider, would that 25 extra lbs make a difference ? Without going to a custom spring , I think my spring rate is 12.5. Or could seals hold 200lbs and give me a little more boost ?

yes the shock will be o.k. with 200 lbs.

Do you think it would be advantagous in my situation for the 200 lbs ?



bump 2

bork, time to call a suspension shop man. They'd be able to answer it in a jiffy...

I talked to Bob Bell from Precision Concepts and he uses 180.

Thanks , I'll give the post a rest.
