My suggestion; lose weight so you don't need stiffer springs. It's an option, cheaper too. :thumbsup:

95kg = 210lbs+/- ballpark figs.

You will be close to needing stiffer springs. check the manual to see what the std rates are, failing that I suggest check the "Race Tech" website which has a spring rate calculator based on rider weight and type of riding. They also post the STD setup for most bikes.

Most newer moto-x bikes come setup pretty stiff. Depending on what riding you do you may find your springs are OK. Have you ridden it and noticed any traits you can tell us about??

Cheers, :thumbsup:
