As far as i know the stock spring is a 5.4kg?? Racetech lists it as 5.1kg but i thought they were wrong on that , can someone confirm this?

someone posted the 2011 team green specs, there its listed as 51N/mm, that would be 5.2kg/mm

http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=956098&highlight=2011+kawasaki+team+green+suspension+specs

tech care lists the 2011 spring as 5.2, but the 2010 as 5.4

most of the kxf 250 come with a light spring a 5.1 or 5.2

whats your free sag? polle advice will give a decent increase in stiffness

sag number is free 44mm race sag 100mm with stock spring and pc-linkage arm.

i just read the article in MXA, they tested the DEAN WILSON'S PRO CIRCUIT / KAWASAKI KX250F, Dean weighs 155 pounds and uses 4.8kg/mm ​​rear spring he has the same weight as me.

Maybe i need same rear spring (4.8kg/mm)

what do you think that if I take out the comp stack midvalve 17x.10 and drill bleed hole piston?

needs to be changed rebound stack?

i would not think so, as you are changing on type of bleed for another, the stack should already be adjusted for extra bleed.

ok. I thought I'd try without 17x.10 bleed shim and drill bleed hole.

Stock REB stack looks like this:

5 - 18.1

9.10

18.1

16.1

14.1

12.1

10.1

9.2 b

3 - 11.3

12.5 x 2.5 w
