Race Tech's charts are ALWAYS too stiff so 13kg would suck. Next question is why does he need a new spring? Is it just because he ways 275 or did you guys measure and see how the bike sits?

IF you do need a new spring, the Ohlins 01095-XXY series springs would fit the OEM shock. And they have rates that go up to 210NM (21.41 kg/mm)

Stupidity and Motivation are a dangerous combination
