Hurting the stock springs..What do I need??

Recommended Posts

Bought a 2000 250 EXC today to go SLOW in the trails with my son. I'm 260 with no gear. What rear spring rating do I need? Stock is a PDS3-250. If someone has both a WP and a PDS number for my weight that would be great. I'm a little confused, I guess to much reading... Has aftermarket decals on the front forks, no idea whats in there but they are OK right now. Seems like a good bike, need to dig into the jetting, running rich at sealevel..

Thanks

Im gonna guess at a 9.6 rear and 48 fronts. Im 215 dry and used 8.8 to a 9.2 on a 200. The 200 is lighter than the 250, the 9.2 was too stiff for me. If I were you and found a 9.4 or 9.6 I would try those. Many springs for sale used at KTMTALK.COM, join over there and check the classofoeds.
