my stock Ti one was like a 5.2 i think and i believe thats like 180lb rider.

Its stiff probably good for you. Just try setting the sag. If you can't you may want to get another.

Im not sure on the wieght just know it was way to stiff for me lil 150lbs

They had 4.4 in the front fork and a 5.1 Ti shock spring. I'm around 180 w/o gear and I run a steel 4.7 rear and 4.3 in front. The 4.4 in front worked fine I just changed mine experimenting a little.

You are just a tad heavy, if you are over 6' tall you may want to go to the next heavier rear spring

try it out. see what your sag is.

You should be fine with that spring. You'll probably start dropping pounds when your start riding a lot lol.

Are you doing woods or MX?

To guy thats 180lb using 4.7 rear im assuming is a woods rider.

I have a 4.6 or 4.7 and im 155lbs

Here is what MX-Tech recommends for motocross rider at 195lbs, I put it at 195 because of gear you would be wearing. You should be fine with the stock spring rates.

Fork: 0.44kgmm

Shock: 5.1kgmm

Recommended Spring Rates:

Fork: 0.44 kg/mm

Shock: 5.2 kg/mm
