Gen 4 Undersprung vs oversprung
Hi everyone, I have been lurking and searching on this site for a couple of weeks trying to learn as much as I can about my new used 2011 ZX10R, but have not been able to find an answer to the questions I have. I am planning on having the rear shock resprung for my weight (165 lbs with out gear), and revalved. According to RaceTech's site, I need a 10.994 kg/mm spring for street or 11.2 for road racing. However they only offer a 10.7 0r 11.6 spring. All I do is street riding, and sometimes aggressive street riding, also I don't mind a stiff ride at all. I was planning on keeping the factory spring rate in the forks, but RaceTech's site recommends to change those to .944 for street riding or .991 for road racing from 1.0 kg, but they only offer .95 kg so I would be again oversprung or undersprung in the front (but not by much). I have yet to locate a reputable shop in my area to help me set up my suspension, but I am working on it. Any advice or help is appreciated. My questions are:
1) generally is it better to be oversprung or undersprung?
2) Would it even be worth doing the front at all?
