Help with YZ250 spring rates

Recommended Posts

Guys I have a 2005 yz 250 2-stroke that I'm trying to get springs set up for. It's all stock and I know that my weight is too much for stock. I weigh 215 naked so figure about 225-230 in full gear. I ride motocross only at a beginner level. Racetech and Mxtech calculators show that I need .46 fork springs and 5.2 shock spring. These sound light to me as my 08 yz450f has .50 fork springs and 5.9 shock spring and I like it. Those of you that have setup one of these yz 2 stokers let me know if this sounds right. Thanks for all your help.
