Spring rates for wr250f and 210lb rider?

Recommended Posts

Couple questions, I ride mostly single tracks, tight rutty stuff but ocassionally run sandy washes and some jumps. My suspension is stock 2005 wr250f and it rides nice in the slow stuff. I've heard that being too heavy moves the dampening out of the sweet spot of the suspension stroke and I'm wondering if I'm too heavy for the standard springs. I do notice that it feels like it bottoms on any decent size jump. I'm 6'2" 210 pounds and yes I realize I should be on a 450 but I love this little bike in the twisties. Should I just play with my compression and dampening or is it a lost cause without buying stiffer springs to offset my weight? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I realize this is an old post but I'm in exactly the same situation and need advice on spring rates for 210 lb rider on 2005 WR250F.

What's confusing is RaceTech and MX Tech recommend two different springs for my weight.

Thanks!
