Do I need new springs?

I bought a 00'KTM300 MXC & the PO was atleast 260-280lbs. Instead of buying the right springs, he just cranked every adjustment wide open. The first thing I did was put everything back to stock settings (I weigh 160lbs without any gear).

I plan to get the forks & shock redone, & was wandering if the springs need to be replaced. Do the springs get used up, or do they last forever?

Thanks, Rob :ride:

Springs lose their strength over time. I'd replace them with a set rated for your weight and riding style.
